The improbable story of the Vulcan bombing raid on the Falkland Islands that opened the British effort to retake the territory in 1982
In 1982 as the British Naval task force steamed south to liberate the Falklands, the RAF devised an extraordinarily audacious plan to use near retirement Vulcan bombers to attack the captured airfield in the longest bombing raid in history. A story of engineering feats, aircrew bravery, ashtrays pressed into frontline military service and Policemen up ladders. A curiously British tale of determination and impudence.
