The Avro 730 Adelaide is a supersonic strategic reconnaissance plane in the Royal Air Force capable of achieving speeds up to Mach 3.3 developed in the late 1950s to support the V-bombers.

It was originally powered by eight Armstrong-Siddeley P.176 turbojets however in the 1970s, they were replaced by a pair of Rolls Royce Olympus Mk.610 afterburning turbojets.

The Avro Adelaide is the production version of the Avro 730 which was designed to fill the OR.330 requirement by the Royal Air Force.
