During the Falklands war it was caught on the ground by a Harrier and damaged by cannon fire. It was later finished off by a cluster bomb from another Harrier. The wreckage is still extant in 2002 as it was seen on a documentary commemorating the 20th anniversary of the war. Close by is also SA330L Puma AE-501 which suffered the same fate. Both aircraft belonged to Batallon de Aviacion de Combate 601.
