Rolling Thunder by Stephen Brown - Original Painting


Original oil painting on high quality stretched canvas featuring Avro Vulcan XH558 with other aircraft of 27 Squadron at RAF Scampton during the late 1970s. The concept of a long range bomber capable of delivering a nuclear payload was formulated in the late 1940s as the growing threat of the Soviet Union became apparent. The contract was won by A V Roe and Company and under the leadership of Chief Designer Roy Chadwick the Avro Vulcan was born. The Vulcan formed the backbone of Britain's nuclear deterrent throughout the Cold War years and continued to play an important role in the country's defences right up until its retirement from service in 1984.

The canvas is signed on the back in permanent ink by veteran Vulcan pilot: Flight Lieutenant Don Briggs DFC
During World War Two Don flew 62 ops as Flight Engineer on Lancasters of 156 Pathfinder Squadron. After the war he qualified as a pilot and flew all three types of V-Bomber operationally including the famous Vulcan XH558. He flew the mission that dropped the third and last Atom Bomb on Christmas Island. In a long and distinguished career Don flew 49 of the 89 Vulcan B2s that entered service.
