<!-- This article is a part of WikiProject Aircraft. Please see WikiProject Aircraft/page content for recommended layout. -->The Avro 707 (also known as Type 707) was a British experimental aircraft built to test the tailess thick delta wing configuration chosen for the Avro 698 jet bomber, later named the Vulcan. In particular, the low-speed characteristics of such aircraft were not well known at the time. Aerodynamically, it was a ⅓-scale version of the Vulcan.

Design and development

The 707 was a "proof-of-concept" delta design that was principally the work of Stewart D. Davies, Avro Design Office leader. The diminuative experimental aircraft initially incorporated a wing with about 50° sweep, without a horizontal tail on a fin with trailing edge sweep. The trailing edge of the wing carried two pairs of control surfaces: inboard elevator and outboard ailerons. Retractable airbrake were provided above and below the wings.The prototypes were ordered by the Air Ministry to Specification E.15/48. The aircraft were produced quickly using a few components from other aircraft including the first prototype utilizing a Gloster Meteor canopy. The 707 programme provided valuable insights into the Vulcan's flight characteristics, most of the information coming from the second and third prototypes which flew before the Vulcan. All 707s were powered by a single Rolls Royce...
