Football War

This year is also the 50th anniversary of the so called "Football War" between Honduras and El Salvador.
It was most unpleasant while it lasted and should not be forgotten. It cast a shadow for quite a few years.

A bit before the time of videos as we know them but there is newsreel material.

Also the on line newspaper, Noticias de El Salvador, is running a supplement - in black and white, and of course in Spanish.

Sorry to introduce an aviation element but it's famous for being the last time WW2 piston engined fighters fought each other. Both sides having F4U Corsairs and one operating Mustangs.

Strange war really and not really about football of course.
