A fascinating  video I stumbled upon. Yes we all know about the Falklands but this is the first time I have seen it in this detail.

Wasn't this simply a case of the RAF desperately trying to prove their worth, thus preventing further budget cuts?

At that time everyone was desperately trying to keep up with Margaret Thatcher's desire for revenge against the Argies which, resulting in victory, coincidentally saved her government.
