As the Royal Navy task force heads south to help regain the Falkland
Islands from Argentine invasion several Hawker-Siddeley Sea Harrier FRS.1 fly a
combat air patrol over the fleet.
Identifiable in the picture are the ships HMS Hermes, one of the two
carriers that were so critical to the re-taking of the islands. to the left of
her in the picture is HMS Brilliant, while to the right can be seen HMS Antrim.
Paul Couper's aviation art painting print is a tribute to a piece of Britain's aviation heritage that proved itself in one of the most testing environments possible.
