    Default Avro Vulcan Raid on Falklands

    Superb documentary on the Vulcan raid on the Port Stanley runway during the Falklands War. Amazing that they pulled it off with so many challenges to overcome in such a short amount of time. Hats off to the RAF, again.

    I have seen that before, but it didn't stop me from watching it again and came away with tears in my eyes...Indeed, I salute you all !

    As a Canadian, I salute the Royal Air Force. A 'real' Air Force.

    It is amazing how they operationalized the mid-air refueling plan.

    Fantastic documentary! I have seen it several times along with The Falklands Play which is a fantastic BBC drama based upon the events leading up to the war.
