FIGHTERS OVER THE FALKANDS

Fighters Over the Falklands: Defending the Islanders’ Way of Life captures daily life using pictures taken during the author’s tours of duty in the Falkland Islands. From the first detachments of Phantoms and Rapiers operating from a rapidly upgraded RAF Stanley airfield and RAF Mount Pleasant, see life from the author’s perspective as Commander of the Tornado F3 Flight. Frontline fighter crews provided Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) during day to day flying operations working with the Royal Navy, Army and other air force units to defend a remote and sometimes forgotten theatre of operations. The book also examines how the islanders interacted with the forces based at Mount Pleasant and contrast high technology military operations with the lives of the original inhabitants, namely the wildlife.

Fighters Over the Falklands: Defending the Islanders’ Way of Life is unique in that the author flew in the legendary Phantom and Tornado in the frontline and captured beautiful and amazing unpublished photographs that will appeal to historians, military specialists and modellers alike.
