Vulcan at Ascension, 1982 by Ivan Berryman. (P)

Vulcan at Ascension, 1982 by Ivan Berryman. (P)

During the Falklands conflict in 1982, the tiny mid-Atlantic volcanic island of Ascension became the starting point for the Black Buck missions - a relay of tanker aircraft refueling two Vulcan bombers to attack Argentine positions and damage the runway at Port Stanley to prevent the use of fast jets. At the time these were the longest range bombing missions in history.
