Attack to Fearless

attack to fearless exequiel martinez malvinas war

During the attacks in San Carlos Fearless (a troops transport ship that was frequently used as COC by the British) was attacked by a M5. The shot was taken by a journalist that was close to the área. The very beautiful picture shows the plane flying at high speed lower that the bridge and very close to her. It was published in the British press.

I wanted to me a much more detailed image and from another angle thus I was inspired in the story by the then Capt Mir González and current Chief of Staff of V Brigada Aérea (1995).

Mir González’s bomb hits the stern without exploding. The enemy admired him because they believe that no one would have dared to pass so low and so close to the ship doing 900 km/hr.
