Remark

A-517 (cn 014) Damaged in a Sea Harrier attack, it was then used as a decoy for the rest of the war, being attacked several times more. Afterwards it was registered as G-BLRP (since cancelled) and supposedly shipped to the UK in a container. Does anybody know where the aircraft is today?

Argentina - Air Force
FMA IA-58A Pucara
Port Stanley (PSY / SFAL)
Falkland Islands, May 1983
Remark
Photographer
A-532 (cn 032) A-514 is also dumped at the end of the runway. A-532 was later taken to a weapons range for use as a target. A-514 lingered around for another couple of years before being dumped into a pit as part of a clear up before the airport was handed back to the local government. Between the two aircraft is another famous Falkland wreck "The Lady Elizabeth" where the SAS hid out during the war and reported back on all sea and aircraft movements.
