30th April 1982 and the ambitious plan to hit the airfield at Port Stanley gets underway from Ascension Island. Vulcans and Victors of the Royal Air Force get airborne. It would take great skill, bravery and 11 Victor tankers to get Vulcan XM607 to the target. Inspite a few set backs the mission was considered a success forcing the Argentinians to withdraw their fast jets from the air field.
