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 troops are based at the British garrison on the Falklands at Mount Pleasant, about 35 miles from the capital, Stanley. Last month, Britain announced it would send two Chinook helicopters to the islands as well as a new air defense missile system, as part of a £180 million upgrade to the islands’ defenses. The announcement was made amid reports that Argentina was in talks to lease 12 Sukhoi Su-24 bombers from Russia. Argentina has intensified its claims to the islands in recent years. Britain and Argentina fought a brief war over the islands in 1982 after Argentina invaded the islands. More than 600 Argentine and 225 British servicemen were killed in the conflict. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Next Media Animation’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D animated news graphics that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

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 force to engage the Argentine Navy and Air Force before making an amphibious assault on the islands. The conflict lasted 74 days and ended with the Argentine surrender on 14 June 1982, returning the islands to British control. In total, 649 Argentine military personnel, 255 British military personnel, and three Falkland Islanders died during the hostilities.

Span/Eng/Nat An historic visit to the Falklands islands this week has been an emotional one for the Argentine veterans of the 1982 war with Britain. The islands remained British as a result of the war and Anglo-Argentine relations have since been slow to recover. But for Jorge Taranto, a 25-year-old soldier at the time of the war, the visit has allowed him for the first time to honour the dead at their gravesides and to reunite with islanders who once helped save his life. Jorge Taranto has waited 17 years for this. He fought here for sovereignty in the Anglo-Argentine war and could not return following Argentina's defeat in 1982 Relations between the two countries are slowly gathering strength once again but this is the first unrestricted visit by any Argentine to the Falkland Islands since an agreement signed in July this year. At last, Jorge can return to the town where he was based during the war, Port Howard. He was 25 at the time. Seventeen years later, he wishes to honour the men on both sides who fell and to reunite with the islanders he remembers. Rodney Lee, a local farmer, took him on a tour of the town. UPSOUND: (English) "I don't know. It wasn't a very nice experience for us. We try to forget it all now." SUPER CAPTION: Rodney Lee, Farmer The emotional shock of returning to where he once fought was plain to see. There is a museum in Port Stanley now which houses the evidence of a war. The remnants of what Argentina left behind in her defeat have since become objects of history and placed there. These are records which help Jorge relive the past. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "This is the name of the place where I was based, Port Yapeyu." SUPER CAPTION: Jorge Taranto, Argentine veteran The issue of sovereignty in the Falkland Islands still remains a sensitive one. Argentina has yet to give up her territorial claim and islanders have been suspicious of their new visitors since their arrival on Saturday. But there is hope for peace and reconciliation. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think this is a very big step probably towards reconciliation. I guess I've never been one to hate the Argentines. I hated what they did and I hated the people who brought it about but I never hated Argentines so I bear no grudges against somebody who was here. As I said, I bear my grudges against the Argentine government of the time, the junta of the time." SUPER CAPTION: Rodney Lee, Farmer Jorge is able to revisit the same place where he lived and where so little has since changed. UPSOUND: (Spanish) "Here, I was taking a bath during an air attack once with nothing but my helmet on." SUPER CAPTION: Jorge Taranto, Argentine veteran But, despite the pain or reliving the past, Jorge said his visit had been reassuring. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "I'm glad to be here. I think it is very important for all veterans to come here like this. It's like finding yourself. All of us, each and everyone of us, lost something fighting for this land." SUPER CAPTION: Jorge Taranto, Argentine veteran He also visited a graveyard Wednesday where six Argentines lie buried alongside SAS captain John Hamilton. UPSOUND: (Spanish) "He is a dead soldier and I have respect for dead soldiers." SUPER CAPTION: Jorge Taranto, Argentine veteran There is little stomach yet on the island for any nationalist expression from visiting Argentines. But their presence alone and the acceptance from islanders towards them is a sign that some of the wounds have begun to heal.

There is no doubt it was an incredible mission during the Falklands War. The RAF launched a Vulcan bomber 8,000-miles to put the runway at Port Stanley out of action. A logistical nightmare, the Cold War-era Vulcan needed 13 fuel tankers to reach its target and return to the Ascension Islands. The 16-hour flight on April 30 and May 1, 1982, was the longest non-stop bombing mission in history. The result was that one of its load of 1,000lb bombs hit the runway, denying the Argentines the the chance to use it for their fast jets – a key, early victory in the battle for air supremacy.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) is the United Kingdom's aerial warfare force. Formed towards the end of the First World War on 1 April 1918,[3] it is the oldest independent air force in the world.[4] Following victory over the Central Powers in 1918 the RAF emerged as, at the time, the largest air force in the world.[5] Since its formation, the RAF has taken a significant role in British military history, in particular, playing a large part in the Second World War where it fought its most famous campaign, the Battle of Britain.[6] The RAF's mission is to support the objectives of the British Ministry of Defence (MoD), which are to "provide the capabilities needed: to ensure the security and defence of the United Kingdom and overseas territories, including against terrorism; to support the Government’s foreign policy objectives particularly in promoting international peace and security."[1] The RAF describe its mission statement as "... [to provide] An agile, adaptable and capable Air Force that, person for person, is second to none, and that makes a decisive air power contribution in support of the UK Defence Mission."[7] The mission statement is supported by the RAF's definition of air power, which guides its strategy. Air power is defined as: "The ability to project power from the air and space to influence the behaviour of people or the course of events."[8] Today the Royal Air Force maintains an operational fleet of various types of aircraft,[9] described by the RAF as being "leading-edge" in terms of technology.[10] This largely consists of fixed-wing aircraft, including: fighter and strike aircraft, airborne early warning and control aircraft, ISTAR and SIGINT aircraft, aerial refueling aircraft and strategic and tactical transport aircraft. The majority of the RAF's rotary-wing aircraft form part of the tri-service Joint Helicopter Command in support of ground forces. Most of the RAF's aircraft and personnel are based in the UK, with many others serving on operations (principally Afghanistan) or at long-established overseas bases (Ascension Island, Cyprus, Gibraltar, and the Falkland Islands). Although the RAF is the principal British air power arm, the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm and the British Army's Army Air Corps also deliver air power which is integrated into the maritime, littoral and land environments. History[edit] Main article: History of the Royal Air Force Further information: List of Royal Air Force operations Origins[edit] While the British were not the first to make use of heavier-than-air military aircraft, the RAF is the world's oldest independent air force: that is, the first air force to become independent of army or navy control.[4] It was founded on 1 April 1918, with headquarters located in the former Hotel Cecil, during the First World War, by the amalgamation of the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) and the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS). At that time it was the largest air force in the world. After the war, the service was drastically cut and its inter-war years were relatively quiet, with the RAF taking responsibility for the control of Iraq and executing a number of minor actions in other parts of the British Empire. The RAF's naval aviation branch, the Fleet Air Arm, was founded in 1924 but handed over to Admiralty control on 24 May 1939. The RAF developed the doctrine of strategic bombing which led to the construction of long-range bombers and became its main bombing strategy in the Second World War.[11] Second World War[edit] A later version of the Spitfires which played a major part in the Battle of Britain. Further information: Air warfare of World War II The RAF underwent rapid expansion prior to and during the Second World War. Under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan of December 1939, the air forces of British Commonwealth countries trained and formed "Article XV squadrons" for service with RAF formations. Many individual personnel from these countries, and exiles from occupied Europe, also served with RAF squadrons. By the end of the war the Royal Canadian Air Force had contributed more than 30 squadrons to serve in RAF formations, similarly, approximately a quarter of Bomber Command's personnel were Canadian.[12] Additionally, the Royal Australian Air Force represented around nine percent of all RAF personnel who served in the European and Mediterranean theaters.[13] The Avro Lancaster heavy bomber was extensively used during the strategic bombing of Germany. In the Battle of Britain in 1940, the RAF (supplemented by 2 Fleet Air Arm Squadrons, Polish, Czecho-Slovak and other multinational pilots and ground personnel) defended the skies over Britain against the numerically superior German Luftwaffe. In what is perhaps the most prolonged and complicated air campaign in history, the Battle of Britain contributed significantly to the delay and subsequent indefinite postponement of Hitler's plans for anvasion of the United Kingdom (Operation Sealion).
