Operation Black Buck. 2 Vulcans loaded with 21 1000 pounders (1 mission a/c 1 spare) 11 Victor K2 tankers with 110,000 lb on board each to fly the mission to the Falklands islands. They still had too little fuel and required a scra...

Re: Germanwings A320 down in French Alps

Revelations in the news today over the pilot's mental state and relational problems may have lead him to this act. It's going to get very messy.
