QRA Intercept "Down South"

There was a famous shot of the Argentine Electra taken by a QRA crew from a 23 Sqn Phantom from Stanley. It used to be on the ops board at MPA. Anyone have a copy or have a link to it online by any chance?

I had a quick search and found this one taken from an Argentine Electra.

Thanks TEEJ. I hadn't seen that one. The picture was from the F4 of the Electra. Wish I'd put it on the photocopier!

Can't believe it. I could have asked the question at TDPU!

I can probably put you in touch with Julian Stinton, pm me if interested. I don't know if he has a copy but no doubt he knows where to find one.

There appears to be isles under the white clouds. Did the Electra really get so close to the islands?
