Détails:
Lockheed Hercules TC-63 departed Comodoro Rivadavia at 08:53 for a reconnaissance flight near the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas. Almost two hours into the flight, near Pebble Island/Isla Borbón, the plane was detected by the radar of the British frigate HMS Minerva. Two patrolling Sea Harrier jets were sent to intercept the C-130. One of the Harriers (XZ451) fired two AIM-9L Sidewinder missiles at the Hercules. The first one missed but the second missile hit the left wing. The pilot continued by firing his 30 mm cannon until the Hercules lost control, crashing into the sea.
