Description

Aviation book
Introduction
This book is a pictorial account of the role played by Argentina's Air Forces during the short but bitter struggle with Great Britain for the possession of the inhospitable Falkland Islands in the Spring of 1982. Argentina deployed about 300 aircraft of all types in the islands and from Southern mainland air bases, losing 100 to all causes.
( ... ) In term of tactics, Argentina aviators were lacking somewhat compared to the standards practised by their British counterparts, and some of their losses could doubtless have been avoided had there been kind of mutual support. ( ... ) From April 2nd to June 14th, 1982, the Fuerza Aérea Argentina recorded 12,454 flight - hours, of which 2,782 were by combat jets.
( ... ) The photographs presented here have come from a variety of sources in Great Britain and Argentina. Many originate in private collections on both sides of the Atlantic and are manifestly not the work of professional photographers, but their historic interest is considerable, capturing as they do the atmosphere of the war and recording the Argentine Air Forces' baptism of fire and the high price which was paid.
