AVRO Aircraft Sound Recordings

These AVRO Aircraft sound recordings span a history of over 70 years. Avro manufactured many landmark designs including the Avro 504, AVRO Tutor, AVRO Anson and the Avro Lancaster. The AVRO Lancaster was one of the pre-eminent bombers during the Second World War and the delta wing Avro Vulcan, a stalwart of the Cold War. Recordings here of the AVRO Lancaster, AVRO Tutor, AVRO Anson, AVRO 504k and others.

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight AVRO Lancaster

The Avro Lancaster really needs no introduction. It was a British Rolls-Royce Merlin powered four-engine Second World War heavy bomber made initially by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service in 1942, and was one of the main heavy bombers of the RAF, the RCAF and squadrons from other Commonwealth and European countries serving within RAF Bomber Command and became the most famous and most successful of the Second World War night bombers (and I hear from veteran crew of other types, most dominating in peoples minds). Although the Lancaster was primarily a night bomber, it excelled in many other roles including daylight precision bombing, and gained worldwide renown as the "Dam Buster" used in the 1943 Operation Chastise raids on Germany's Ruhr Valley dams.

These recordings are all of the BBMF's Lancaster PA474 which is one of only two Lancasters remaining in airworthy condition out of the 7377 that were built – the other being in Canada. PA474 was built in Chester in mid-1945 - and NX611 'Just Jane' based at the Lincolnshire Aviation Museum at East Kirkby.

The Shuttleworth Collections AVRO Tutor

An Armstrong Siddeley radial engined biplane, A.V. Roe's Type 621 Tutor was a two-seat British from the interwar period. Simple but rugged, an trainer that was used by the Royal Air Force as well as many other air arms worldwide.

 

Designed by Roy Chadwick as an Avro private venture metal replacement for the Avro 504, it was conceived as a light initial pilot trainer. The biplane design featured heavily staggered equal span, single-bay wings; the construction was based on steel tubing (with some wooden components in the wing ribs) with doped linen covering. A conventional, fixed divided main undercarriage with tail skid was used in all but the latest aircraft, which had a tail wheel.

Powered by either by a 155 hp (116 kW) Armstrong Siddeley Mongoose or Armstrong Siddeley Lynx IV (180 hp/130 kW) or IVC (240 hp/179 kW) engine. Later Lynx-powered models had the engine enclosed in a Townend ring cowling. The Mongoose powered version was called the 621 Trainer and the more numerous Lynx engined aircraft the Tutor. The Tutor also differed by having a more rounded rudder.

AVRO 504kThe Avro 504 was a World War I biplane aircraft made by the Avro aircraft company and under licence by others. Production during the War totalled 8,970 and continued for almost 20 years, making it the most-produced aircraft of any kind that served in World War I, in any military capacity, during that conflict. Over 10,000 would be built from 1913 to the time production ended in 1932. 

The AVRO 504k was typically powered by a single Le Rhône Rotary engine, rated at 110 hp.

AVRO Vulcan

Click for AVRO Vulcan sound recordings page

The Avro Vulcan is a jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984.

The Vulcan had no defensive weaponry, initially relying upon high-speed high-altitude flight to evade interception. Electronic countermeasures were employed by the B.1 (designated B.1A) and B.2 from circa 1960. A change to low-level tactics was made in the mid-1960s. In the mid 1970s nine Vulcans were adapted for maritime radar reconnaissance operations, redesignated as B.2 (MRR). In the final years of service six Vulcans were converted to the K.2 tanker configuration for aerial refuelling. Since retirement by the RAF one example, B.2 XH558, named "The Spirit of Great Britain" has been restored for use in display flights and air shows, whilst two other B.2s, XL426 and XM655, are kept in taxiable condition for ground runs and demonstrations at London Southend Airport and Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield respectively.

  • The idea of recording the aircraft sounds for checking their repairs and maintenance seems to be a very good one. This looks pretty efficient since the recordings can be further evaluated after storing the same. Keep sharing more useful stuff like this.

  • The pilot’s education is quite tough because that involves lots of technical points which are not easily understandable. For pilots are having a great mind and they love to learn about how to drive aircraft. Thanks for sharing the informative that is pretty informative through aircraft sound recording.
