BAC Canberra Mk 62 B 105 (Argentine Air Force Air Group 2 1982) Diecast Model Airplane.

It is made by Corgi and is 1:72 scale.


During the Falklands campaign the Argentine Air Force used a number of different aircraft. Along with the American made A4 Skyhawk, French Mirage and Super Etendard, they fielded a British export in the BAC Canberra. Supplied to the Argentine Air Force in 1971 the Canberra was well-liked and proved to be a useful strategic bombing element. By the time of the Falklands conflict, they were hoped to be a useful addition to the smaller bombers and made a number of attacks on the British during the campaign.

Two Canberras were lost during the campaign, one to a Sea Dart missile and the other to a Sea Harrier. The aircraft lost to the Sea Dart missile was in fact the final Argentine loss of the Falklands campaign. The Canberra was eventually retired in April 2000 with B-105 being kept as a memorial to all the Argentine forces killed in the Falklands campaign.
