The Falkland Islands is a remote British territory, about 8,000 miles from the UK mainland and just over 400 miles from the coast of Argentina.

From 1963 to 1974, Portugal and its nationalist enemies fought an increasingly intense war for the independence of Portuguese Guinea, then a colony but now the Republic of Guinea-Bissau. For most of the conflict, Portugal enjoyed virtually unchallenged air supremacy, and increasingly based its strategy on this advantage. The Portuguese Air Force Forca Aerea Portuguesa, abbreviated FAP consequently played a crucial role in the Guinean war. Indeed, throughout the conflict, the FAP – despite the ...

Later, a record-breaking long-distance flight was accomplished by a single aircraft, and the type was ...
