    Had a search but couldn't find this article on an interesting patch some foreign types are spoorting at the FIDAE airshow.


    Fcuk it, our pilots would probably stir it with an iffy patch if the headshed were more chilled.
  2. With those two huge turds in the middle it looks like it's saying "I was there - and I shit myself"

  3. Newsflash! Brits are not the only ones - Argentine pilots have a sense of humour too!

    My point exactly.

    I suppose their grown-ups are either more chilled or shriekingly passionate supporters of Op Rosario.
    With a different result.
  5. Bit embarrassing being made to wear a reminder of a war that you lost.

    Apparently it's not over.

    Maybe this bint has to sing first. [​IMG]

    However she is looking into direct flights from BA to Mount Pleasant for reasons known only to herself.
    And the Estado Mayor Conjunto.
  7. By 'eck thats a bit rough. Still, any port and all that.
  8. Hmmm,

    Argentina have applied prssure to Chile to stop their direct flights... and the flow of workers from Chile to FI. Flights to BA means less simple for Chilean workers, and direct control over commercial flights into the FI.

    Simples. Unless you want to consider the coup de main described a few weeks ago by some remarkably sentient journo.

    Maybe that's why the Argentines are flaunting the patches in Chile, sort of "Stop the flights senor, otherwise we'll give you a good arse-kicking like we did to the British."

    (History has never been accurately taught in Argentina.)

  15. If they do, I don't why, it's not like they ever did much fighting anywhere, the fuckin walts...pretty sure it was FAPLA and Cubans our guys were facing there, maybe some PLAN too.
