Sud Aviation Vautour

The Sud-Ouest Aviation S. O. 4050 Vautour II was a French jet-powered bomber and attack aircraft developed and manufactured by aircraft company Sud Aviation. The Vautour was operated by France's Armée de l'Air, having been developed by Sud Aviation in response to a French requirement for a jet aircraft for bombing, low-level attack and all-weather interception operations; the Vautour was used in the Force de frappe under the Commandement des Forces Aériennes Stratégiques. The shortcomings of the type as a bomber, such as its lack of radar or other advanced navigation/attack systems, led to the type being replaced by the more capable Dassault Mirage IV; the Vautour never saw combat use with the French Air Force. The only other customer for the Vautour was Israel. During its service with the Israeli Air Force, the type undertook various mission and roles and was used in combat. Vautours were used during the wars between Israel and its neighbors, including the Six-Day War and the War of Attrition.

Only one air-to-air kill was recorded by a Vautour. During the early 1970s, the Vautour was replaced by the American Douglas A-4 Skyhawk. In the aftermath of the Second World War, France set about the rebuilding and modernisation of its armed forces. In regards to aviation, this task had been made more difficult due to setbacks incurred by the German occupation of France during the conflict. Additionally, France had little technical knowledge or operational know-how with the newly developed field of jet propulsion in comparison to other powers, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. A major step towards bridging this gap was a licencing arrangement between Hispano-Suiza and British engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce Limited, under which the former would manufacture the Rolls-Royce Nene turbojet engine. During June 1951, the French Armée de l'Air issued a detailed requirement for a jet-powered aircraft capable of functioning in several roles, including as a bomber, a low-level attack aircraft, or an all-weather interceptor.

In response to this requirement, French aircraft manufacturer SNCASO decided to adapt its existing S. O. 4000 design. During 1951, test flight of the S. O.4000 prototype had demonstrated promising performance for the type, supporting the decision to proceed with a further development of the design. According to aviation authors Bill Gunston and Peter Gilchrist, "It would be fair to claim that in the early 1950s the Vautour was the most promising twin-jet warplane in Western Europe". An initial order for three prototypes was placed by the AdA. On 16 October 1952, the first prototype of the revised design, designated as the S. O. 4050, conducted its maiden flight. The flight test programme proceeded smoothly. A follow-on order for six pre-production aircraft was soon received. Subsequent production aircraft would use the Atar engine, having proven to be sufficiently mature and, with the aid of water injection, capable of sufficient power to enable the Vautour to take off while carrying a full payload.

Subsequently given the name Vautour II, the aircraft was manufactured in three distinct variants. During 1958, the aircraft entered service with the AdA. While the final French aircraft being retired from frontline service during 1979, a number were retained and soldiered on in various secondary duties into the early 1980s; the Vautour saw no combat usage during its service with the AdA. Although it had been a moderately competent aircraft when it had been developed, the Vautour never benefitted from the adoption of sufficiently powerful engines though suitable powerplants did become available over time; as an interceptor, it was soon outclassed by the newer Dassault Mirage III, while in its roles either as a bomber or attack aircraft, the lack of an advanced navigation/attack system became a crippling limitation upon its effectiveness. The only export customer for the Vautour was Israel, who had chosen to procure a number of other types of combat aircraft from France as well. During the 1950s, France and Israel cooperated on various areas of defence, including armaments and nuclear research.

According to author Sylvia K. Crosbie, a major motivating factor in the Israeli decision to procure the Vautour was to make a political statement to the country's neighbours, viewing the aircraft as a counterpart, a response, to the Soviet-built Ilyushin Il-28 medium bombers, acquired by Egypt. During 1956, two years prior to the Vautour entering squadron service, France had issued a more demanding requirement for a supersonic replacement aircraft; the Vautou

Alexander Carrick

Alexander Carrick was a Scottish sculptor. He was one of Scotland's leading monumental sculptors of the early part of the 20th century, he was responsible for many architectural and ecclesiastical works as well as many war memorials executed in the period following World War I. As head of sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art, as a leading member of the Royal Scottish Academy, Carrick had a lasting influence on Scottish sculpture. Alexander Carrick was born in 1882, the son of a blacksmith in the small town of Musselburgh, just east of Edinburgh. In 1897 he enrolled as a student at Edinburgh College of Art and was apprenticed as a stonemason working in the yard of one of the prominent monumental sculptors of the period, Birnie Rhind, he won the Queen's Prize allowing him to go to London to study for two years at the South Kensington College under the French-born sculptor Professor Édouard Lantéri. He returned to Edinburgh, spending a further two years working under another of the leading Scottish sculptors of the period, Pittendrigh MacGillivray.

In the years running up to World War I Carrick was to become a regular exhibitor at the RSA exhibitions, his exhibition works including A Boy Putting a Stone, A Girl Skipping, Saint Cecilia. He established his reputation as a monumental artist working on prestigious construction projects such as the Usher Hall and the Scotsman Building, both in Edinburgh. Whilst at the Edinburgh College of Art, Carrick met his wife, Janet Ferguson MacGregor, studying painting there, the couple were married in 1914, their first child, was born in 1915. In 1916 Carrick served in Belgium throughout the war. On one occasion a shell prematurely exploded in his battery and he was badly shocked. Due to the epidemics sweeping the military hospitals at the time, he was left in the house of an old Belgian woman, who he remembered had allowed him to sleep for days at a time. In 1916 he modelled the figure of an artilleryman lifting a shell,'The Gunner', exhibited at that year's RSA Exhibition in Edinburgh and received some acclaim, including an article in'The Studio' appearing in 1924.

In 1918 he was elected an Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy while still in Belgium. After the war Carrick re-established his yard in Edinburgh and again began exhibiting at the RSA with'Jock' and'With Bayonet and Bomb'. During the period from 1920 until around 1926 he was involved in war memorial work. Carrick was a stone carver and preferred working in freestone Doddington stone quarried in the Cheviots. War memorials featuring his carved sculptures include Lochawe, Oban, St Margaret's Hope, Kinghorn and Auchtermuchty, he received a commission from the South African Scottish Regimental Association to carve a copy of the Killin soldier for their own memorial which stands in Burghers Park in Pretoria. Carrick executed figures in bronze, including the figures of soldiers for the Dornoch, Forres and Walkerburn war memorials, allegorical figures including'Winged Victory' for Berwick Upon Tweed and'Justice Guiding Valour' for the Fraserburgh war memorial. Despite being engaged in this work, he did execute some other commissions in the early 1920s including carving the stone figures of'The Leopard','The Vulture', and'The Kangaroo' for the Animal Wall extension at Cardiff Castle, the tomb featuring the recumbent figure of Walter Campbell of Lochawe in Saint Conan's Kirk.

Scotland made one final act of remembrance in the late 1920s with the erection of the Scottish National War Memorial in Edinburgh Castle. Carrick was responsible for the small carved virtues of'Courage' and'Justice', set in the niches above the entrance, the bronze figurative panels commemorating the Royal Engineers and Royal Artillery in the East Chapel. In 1929, Carrick's figure of Sir William Wallace was unveiled in Edinburgh Castle; as part of the bequest of one Captain Reid, a competition was held for the design of statues depicting Scotland's national heroes Sir William Wallace and King Robert the Bruce to stand in niches set into the castle wall on either side of the gateway. It was a controversial scheme, attracting widespread debate and criticism in the Scottish press throughout 1928 and 1929. A compromise was reached, the commission for Wallace being awarded to Carrick, Bruce awarded to the sculptor T. J. Clapperton, while Sir Robert Lorimer's Gothic design was chosen for the niches.

With the end of the war memorial period and the onset of the economic depression, Carrick undertook many smaller works including continuing renovations and repairs at George Heriot's School in Edinburgh, Pollok House in Glasgow, Dunnotar Castle. He executed several memorial tablets featuring portraits, including that to Sir Walter Scott in Jedburgh and one to the founder of the Boys' Brigade, William A. Smith in St. Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh; the University of Edinburgh constructed the King's Buildings extension and Carrick was responsible for the stone relief above the doorway of the Geology department, featuring the allegorical figure of Geology studying an ammonite. In the late 1930s he carried out all of the work on Saint Andrew's House, the new government buildings in Edinburgh, to the designs of the London sculptor William Reid Dick
