[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] Our overnight accommodation on Wideawake Airfield en route to the Falklands Islands September 1983 Known locally as 'Tent City'. We had flown in early that evening via VC10 aircraft from Brize Norton UK and refuelling at Dakar , Senegal. Most of the night we were kept awake by the roaring of aircraft engines, either taking off or being tested. We flew early on the following morning via the Airbridge C130 Hercules to Stanley in the Falkland islands.
