Bravo November was one of the first Chinooks the RAF received and the only one to survive the journey to the Falklands in 1982. Three others were lost when the MV Atlantic Conveyor was sunk by an Argentinian missile on 25th May. Bravo November earned a formidable reputation as an aircraft that could survive anything, and when on to prove this on deployment all over the world. Over the course of its operational history four of its pilots have been awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. On the night of 30th May Bravo November was involved in an operation to deliver guns and troops to Mount Kent which overlooked the capital Stanley. Andy Lawless and Tom Jones, who were part of the crew that night, recall a harrowing night’s work.
It's ridiculous to believe that an aircraft can be lucky
