In the 1950s nuclear power was going to change the world. It was going to provide long lasting efficient and powerful energy sources for everything from personal massagers to space ships.  Aircraft were obviously not going to be left out.
The Victomic was the result of a joint venture between aircraft manufacturer Handley Page and industrial conglomerate GEC.

More points for getting this guy involved in it:



He was involved in various nuclear powered aircraft projects in the US in the 50s and 60s.

A CFR (Circulating Fuel Reactor) system like the proposed Martin 331-1?

zenrat:
Stanton Friedman.  Noted.  Might need to add a saucer section though if he is involved.

Not sure on the mechanics of the reactor yet.  Some reading is required.
