Operation Corsair was a military operation launched by the government and military of the Balearic Islands which consisted in a campaign of military raids in Northern Africa and south western Europe.

Those raids, during which thousands of tons of ammunition, technology and other essential goods were retrieved, allowed for the citizens of the archipelago to survive for many years until the islands could be self-sufficient. In addition, thousands of survivors were rescued and evacuated during the more than 215 missions performed under Operation Corsair.

Alacant, Cartagena, Denia, Málaga, Múrcia, Tarragona.


Operation Corsair came to an end in 1998 when Operation Enclave was launched by the BAF. It resulted in the establishment of an enclave, the Manga del Mar Menor settlement, in mainland Spain.
