TaffEvans pic; Whilst serving as an Airman I spent 4 months down the Falklands (March-July '84) working in HeliOps. Not that many opportunities for photography with 12hr shifts and 1 day off every week. Enjoyable experience though. As I was leaving they were cutting the first 'turf at Mount Pleasant!

Royal Navy Phantom F4K Call Sign 005 safely on deck after catching a wire. The wire can be seen still engaged in the aircraft's deck hook. Note the 892 Squadron emblem on the aircraft's fin. The Omega emblem symbolized the last conventional jet squadron to be commissioned into the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm.
