An excellent article.

BBC News - Vulcan Falklands bombing raid remembered

"The Vulcan bomber is being remembered thirty years since one was used in a Falklands raid carried out by the RAF.
The BBC's Danny Savage met some of the people who were involved in the opening operation in the campaign to retake the Falkland Islands."

That thing is a beast!!!! I remember watching a show about a year ago, regarding the Falkland War, and there was a Vulcan segment. A remarkable mission for sure.
