  • The successful liberation of the Falkland Islands from invading Argentine forces in June 1982 was a triumph of logistics, determination and the sheer bravery of Britain’s military personnel. It did, however, clearly illustrate the vulnerability of this British Overseas Territory to attack and a permanent defensive presence would be required in the future. The long association between the Falkland Islands and 1435 Flight began on 1st November 1988, when No.23 Squadron began to re-equip with the new Tornado F.3. With the Falklands based detachment now reduced to just four Phantom FGR.2s, the flight drew on its heritage during the WWII siege of Malta and the defiant defence mounted by a small number of Gloster Sea Gladiators, which were given the names ‘Faith, Hope and Charity’. The fourth Phantom which acted as a reserve aircraft was given the name ‘Desperation’. With the Phantoms eventually giving way to the Panavia Tornado in July 1992, the flight continued this proud tradition, with the Maltese cross and the Falklands Islands crest displayed prominently on many of their aircraft.
