... Vulcan Strategic Bomber (UK)


... the Brits came up with some fantastic aircraft. The Avro Vulcan was just damned scary looking. More like something from Mars rather than the land of tea and crumpets!

I am very partial to the all white 'anti-flash' version shown here. 

 


1945 ... an ending and a starting.

... what would it have been like to try to wrap your head around this brand new power? This leap beyond what had seemed possible in destructive force. It had all been completely secret. No regular person had the slightest clue.





1955 ... those tricky Swedes!

1970 ... finally fulfilled - dreams of VTOL!




... always a controversial beast; and a real 'widow-maker'. It seemed like a good idea but was never really needed.

1960 ... Eddie blows stuff up!



... as I recall; one of the problems with "Project Plowshare" was that atomic earth-moving left a lot of radioactive earth. Dirt and rock is one of the things that holds onto radiation the longest. So you could do all sorts of gee-whiz keeno stuff with atomic munitions- but then you couldn't use them for anything!

 

... Closer than we think!





... love this series that ran in newspapers from the late 50's thru the early 60's.

... here's a LINK to an album on one of my other sites.

1951- 1964 ... US Army television series


... if you like old black and white TV (and I know you do because you've come to this site) you'll love the series of 'informative' shows about what our Cold War Army was up to. Here's the starter LINK .






1946 ... hurrah for the Atom Bomb boys!


... another time another place: co-pilot Captain Robert A. Lewis, commander and pilot Paul W. Tibbets Jr., tailgunner Staff Sergeant George Caron, and flight engineer Staff Sergeant Wyatt Duzenbury.


 

1954 ... "Red Blitz!"


... I certainly hoped that the personnel manning what passed for an Early Warning system in 1954 would show a little more control and professionalism than these characters! But; it must be nerve-wracking to have the command center on a sinking barge in the middle of the Hudson River with Russo-Nazi rocket planes buzzing ten feet over your head.

1954 ... 'H' for Hilarity!


... thank goodness we have Groucho Marx's lewd cocktail napkins for comic relief when the end of the world comes!


 

1947 ... looks like fun!


"... let's see: racial bigotry (check), crazed lust (check), boy on boy Tango (check), depressed, hooded cults (check)! Anything else we need to put on the 'to do' list when we conquer the capitalist-swine Americans comrade?"

Seems the Catechetical Guild Educational Society in St. Paul, Minnesota was jumping the gun a bit with the Commie paranoia for 1947 - heck, the Russkies didn't even have their own A-bomb yet.

Well, the CGES of St. Paul sure went down in history for scaring little kid stiff over those Godless Communists; it has it's own Wikipedia entry https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Is_This_Tomorrow%3F

And I know that you'll be under the sheets all night with a flashlight reading the entire comic book here:  https://flashbak.com/tomorrow-red-scare-comic-book-1947-391142/
