The threat comes a week after Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and ambassador Alicia Castro criticized Britain’s plan to beef up defences on the islands amid reports of an increased risk of invasion from Argentina. Some British 1,200 troo...
During the 1982 Falklands War, Operations Black Buck 1 to Black Buck 7 were a series of seven extremely long-range ground attack missions by Royal Air Force Vulcan bombers of the RAF Waddington Wing, comprising aircraft from 44 Squadron, 50 Squadron, 101 Squadron planned against Argentine positions in the Falkland Islands, of which five missions actually completed attacks on the Falklands. The objectives of all missions were to attack Port Stanley airfield and its associated defences
A mixture of previously unseen amatuer footage and bbc footage from the Falklands war My dad has had this in his possession since his return from the Falklands war, he made the film not long after his return and has shown it to friends and family since then. It contains many incredible scenes such as the battleship sinking; this is the first wartime footage of a ship sinking since the second world war. I am hoping to record a commentary from him as he has lots of interesting story's and facts to go with the video and would be a shame not to share it with whoever is interested For now enjoy the soundtrack he put on all that time ago it still sounds great today .
In November 2012, as a Falklands War vet, I was given the opportunity of returning to the Islands courtesy of The South Atlantic Medal Association 82, The Falkland Islands Government and the great people of the Islands. The journey, which had taken three weeks by ship in 1982 took 21 hours by way of the Shuttle Charter flight between RAF Brize Norton and RAF Mount Pleasant. Thankfully there was a refueling stop-over at Ascension Island and I took the opportunity to film the landing. Some thirty years previously I had taken some photographs at the airfield (called Wideawake with the ICAO code FHAW) showing some of the military build-up. I have included some of those photographs in this video. Incidentally the Airbus in which we flew (A343, Hifly CS-TQL) was scrapped two months later, so th...

This video contains images of military aircraft, helicopter shot down, missing, lost during the Falklands War (1982) and their wrecks. The Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas), also known as the Falklands Conflict, Falklands Crisis, and the Guerra del Atlantico Sur (Spanish for "South Atlantic War"), was a ten-week war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over two British overseas territories in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. It began on Friday, 2 April 1982, when Argentina invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands (and, the following day, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands) in an attempt to establish the sovereignty it had claimed over them. On 5 April, the British government dispatched a naval task forc...
Defence operations in the South Atlantic. The story of how the RAF protects the Falkland Islanders from an inside perspective. Although I hope you'll buy one of my books after watching the video, if you are an aviation enthusiast please watch. I flew the Phantom and Tornado F3 operationally in UK, Germany and the Falkland Islands. "Fighters Over The Falklands" looks at the time after the 1982 conflict. It looks at how we worked with the other services and reflect my experiences as the Boss of the Tornado F3 Flight. I've used pictures and video which I shot from the cockpit and around the islands. My book aims to show daily life on the air defence Flight "Down South. I hope you enjoy the video.
