This episode features the Argentine view of the conflict with our guest Santiago Rivas. Santiago, a well-known aviation journalist and author gives us the Argentine angle on the Air Force’s and Navy’s approach to the conflict, how they operated and the results of their missions.

This is a fascinating insight rarely heard, nor seen. We highly recommend Santiago’s book ‘Wings Of The Malvinas’ which is the critically acclaimed account of the air war and  a required source for anyone interested in understanding the detail behind the Argentine air forces. The book contains full details of every Argentine mission and every aircraft used, as well as a full and detailed bibliography #Falklands35
