getting airborne in a snowstorm on Saturday 16 October 1999. It was the first commercial flight to the Falkland Islands to have originated in Argentina (Rio Gallegos) since the war in 1982. Among the passengers were families of Argentinian servicemen who died during the war.

Snowstorms are boring and regular in winter in Finland but I think Latin American people would be enthusiastic about it!

An historic picture with a tragically sad references. Rest in peace all those who fought in the Falklands, for both the United Kingdom and Argentina.
