Créé par la SNCASO en réponse à un programme défini par l état-major de l’Armée de l’Air en 1951, le Vautour est un biréacteur monoplan à ailes et empennages en flèche. Trois versions ont été conçues dès l’origine : monoplace d’attaque au sol (A), biplace de bombardement (B) et biplace de chasse tout temps (N). Après un premier vol inaugural en octobre 1952, le premier Vautour est livré officiellement en mai 1956, mais la première commande de 300 exemplaires fut finalement réduite à 140 pour des raisons budgétaires, fin 1958. Israël en achèta une trentaine d’exemplaires, engagés lors de la guerre des six jours et dont certains exemplaires restèrent utilisés jusqu’en 1972. Côté français, certains appareils furent utilisés en Polynésie lors des essais nucléaires où ils servirent à recueillir des particules radioactives présentes dans l’air.

Smaller scavengers often depend on the lappet-faced vulture to break through hides of bigger carcasses. Lappet-faced vultures will feed on body parts other raptors avoid, such as skin and bone. There are two subspecies of lappet-faced vulture. Pairs of lappet-faced vultures often build only one nest, although it is also common to have one to three nests that are used alternately, and these nests are used year after year. The breeding season varies across this bird’s extensive range.
