On the first raid, the Vulcan was refuelled seven times on the outward journey and once on the return leg.
Say what? OK, heavy bomb load, head winds, stopped for lunch, but 7 to 1?
Oh, I know one way was Imperial gallons and the other way was metric gallons.
Everything is interesting... look closer.
