We have been invited in a show of solidarity to join the UK in the armada to retake the Falklands. To provide fast jet CAP to protect the task force.
Now remember we only fly between 10 and 12 if the sun's out, The chefs prepared Camembert for breakfast and we get medals.
Thatcher. ..nah don't need your help, hop it Froggy.

It doesn't seem to want to go sir!
Ok, maybe we undo those shackles back to the deck, and I'll tell him to try it with the hook raised as well!

Mon Dieu, it's only vingt kilometres away!

I know - but supposing you need to go around?

Plane Director raises left arm and shouts "This thing's so slow it has to speed up to stop!"

Catapult Crewman screams reply "Why do you think I'm trying to disconnect this shuttle? Any more throttle and she'll be in full reverse! The ship'll go down by the transom!"
