On April 2nd, 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands. On April 5th Britain sent a flotilla to engage the Argentine Navy and Air Force and make an amphibious assault on the island. After 74 days Argentina surrendered on June 14 but not before 649 Argentine personnel losing their lives along with 255 British losses and 3 Falkland islanders. Numerous ships and aircraft from both sides were lost. A-4C Skyhawk C-321 of the Grupo de Casa, IV Brigada Aerea, Fuerza Aerea Argentina, San Julian was delivered on March 29, 1978 and took part in the conflict.

The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable light-attack bomber designed for the US Navy and Marine Corp. First flown in June 1954, the A-4s combat career began with carrier-launched raids over North Vietnam in 1964. The Navy began removing A-4's from its front-line squadrons in 1967, with the last one retired in 1975. The Marine Corps retired the Skyhawk in June 1994.
