Falklands War (Chinook) Ian Avory

May 2015 Monthly Meeting


18 (B) Squadron's (Chinook) 
Falklands War
Ian Avory

Ian's fascinating talk detailed the Chinook Helicopter  involvement  before, during and after the war to retake the Falkland Islands from the Argentinians.

Ian was a squadron pilot during the period so this is the story of his experiences and that of the Squadron with the backdrop of the whole operation.

Ian provided us with many original photographs and even footage of a Chinook Helicopter landing on its "back two wheels".




Thank You, Ian!
