Falklands War anniversary
The Argentine Air Force recently commemorated the 37th anniversary of its baptism of fire – the 1982 conflict in the Falklands, known in Argentina as the Malvinas War. Esteban G Brea reports from Buenos Aires province.
The ceremony was held at the VI Brigada Aérea (6th Air Brigade), in the city of Tandil, in Buenos Aires province. The date, May 1, recalled the first time the Fuerza Aérea Argentina (FAA, Argentine Air Force) entered combat with a foreign power – the UK.
