    Default Cassinga - Looking for Buccaneer that saved the day website

    Google has not been my friend...

    I am looking for the link / website where there is an account of the Buccaneer that came in to assist with the extraction of the parabats. If memory serves me correct the pilot had insisted on being loaded with some armour piercing ordnance on the runway at the last minute, then took off on an unrelated mission and then went in to help at Cassinga due to the Cuban mechanised battalion that was closing in on the remaining half of the parabats.

    Thanks
