Return to Ascension

by Simon Atack

On the 30th April 1982, flying from Wideawake airfield on Ascension island, Flt. Lt. Martin Withers and his crew, flying RAF Vulcan (XM607) launched the first Black Buck bombing operation of the Falklands War.

There and back the non-stop flight covered 7,500 miles, lasting 15 hours 45 minutes – at the time, the longest combat flight in history. The Vulcan was refuelled by Victor tankers five times on the outward journey and once on the return journey.

This oil painting is signed on the back of the canvas in permanent ink by Fl. Lt. Martin Withers DFC.

Canvas size:20"x30" (51cm x 30cm)
