No 2 Squadron flew its final Canberra bombing missions of the Vietnam War before withdrawing from its base at Phan Rang, in Ninh Thuan Province. During nearly four years of operations, No 2 Squadron had dropped 76 389 bombs totalling 27 158 tonnes. It was to be another 32 years (until 2003) before the Air Force again dropped a bomb in anger.
