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.
