HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 c156W
Mr. David Young

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the estimated cost of a Hercules flight, including tanker support, from Ascension Island to the Falklands; and how this is computed.

Mr. Blaker

The estimated cost of a return flight is about £110,000. This sum is made up of the additional cost of aviation fuel consumed, spares and minor items. It includes the cost of tanker support from Ascension Island.
