The 'V' Bombers - Avro Vulcan B.2 - underside

A photograph of the 'belly of the beast'. The underside of the Vulcan clearly shows the bomb-bay doors between the two pairs of engines which would have parted to release it's nuclear payload, had diplomacy failed in the Cold War.

Boeing B52 Stratofortress, Owners Workshop Manual

Davies, Steve
Another excellent Haynes manual of one of those iconic pieces of technology we wish we could own! Detailed sections on it's design and combat history (primarily covering Vietnam and Iraq), it's anatomy, systems, engines and maintenance schedules. Some really detailed and annotated diagrams and the usual crop of photos from all angles. It also has a blow-by-blow account of a training mission from the point of view of the pilot, along with an unusual viewpoint from an air-gunner.
Haynes, Feb 2013
