Chris Gibson's Vulcan's Hammer book has some nice photos of the Blue Steel missile hung under both the Vulcan and the Victor.

P.S I just can't get enough of the Blue Steel missile, my favorite Cold War weapon.

Could we have details of the aircraft and missile fired? Or is that pushing things? What is the protocol?

I always add where possible to the photo, Right click & save as --"F-4BPhantomIIofNavySquadronVF-111TheSundownersispicturedlaunchingmissiles"
Which is a "Sparrow".

One of my favorite pics. Looks like sci-fi laser beams.
