Operation Black Buck
Operation Black Buck was a series of RAF air attacks on Port Stanley during the 1982 Falklands War between Britain and Argentina. The attacks were carried out using Vulcan bombers supported by Victor tankers, all based out of Ascension Island, and at that time, were the longest-range air-attacks in history.
A total of five Black Buck missions were successfully carried out (out of seven planned) during the war, and they were successful in forcing Argentina to withdraw fast jets (including Mirage IIIs) from the Falkland Islands and back to the mainland. Additionally, a number of Argentine radar installations were destroyed by the missions, and Argentine facilities were bombed in the fifth and final mission.
The Black Buck missions were the only time that the Vulcan saw combat, despite serving with the RAF for nearly 30 years.
