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.

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...

There are penguins on your doorstep, spectacular scenery, and, of course, a place that's rich in history. That's a good side of the unusual British forces posting to the Falkland islands. The bad side is the icy gale-force winds, freezing conditions, and limited roads and connectivity.

A graphic representation of the tremendous feat of mid air refuelling in the 'Black Buck' boming raid at Stanley Airport on 1st May 1982. A fine example of British aero engineering with RAF logistics to plan and execute a fleet Victor tankers toenable one Vulcan bomber to fly from The Ascension Islands to the Falklands, a distance of 3,900 miles. Through Adversity to the Stars Note: refuelling is depicted by aircraft flashing green. First broadcast on BBC East Midlands Today during the 25th anniversary of the Falkland Conflict.
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.
The Avro Vulcan (sometimes referred to as the Hawker Siddeley Vulcan) is a jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A.V. Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the riskiest option. Several scale aircraft, designated Avro 707, were produced to test and refine the delta wing design principles. The Vulcan B.1 was first delivered to the RAF in 1956; deliveries of the improved Vulcan B.2 started in 1960. The B.2 featured more powerful engines, a larger wing, an improved electrical system and electronic countermeasures (ECM); many were modified to accept the Blue Steel missile. As a part of the V-force, t...
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 .
