Vulcan 607 by Rowland White is a good read...

The "Black Buck" -missions were a masterpiece of logistics http://www.raf.mod.u...onBlackBuck.cfm

11 Victors to get the single Vulcan from Ascension Island and to the Falklands :-o
Visualized nicely here: https://m.youtube.co...h?v=PBJ99bIhAVk at 21:40.
However, the entire video about the raid is very interresting and I urge You to see it, never the less because of the precence of the two V's

As I find it beautifull though rather empty, I've grabbed this photo for the benefit of My brother inlaw, who have some affection to the Vulcan, but the topic gives opportunity to share with You too:

I've seen this video. What an amazing story! So much could of (and did) gone wrong, but they still pulled it off.
