the 30th April 1982, flying from Wideawake airfield on Ascension island,
Flt. Lt. Martin Withers and his crew, flying RAF Vulcan (XM607) launched
the first Black Buck bombing operation of the Falklands War.
There and back the non-stop flight covered 7,500 miles, lasting 15 hours 45 minutes – at the time, the longest combat flight in history. The Vulcan was refuelled by Victor tankers five times on the outward journey and once on the return journey.
To help us celebrate this year’s 25th Anniversary of the Falklands War, Fl. Lt. Martin Withers has kindly signed every print in this (very) limited edition.
