The captured Argentine's on the race course at Stanley in the Flaklands after the incident was over.
The incredible tale of Argentina's little known first invasion of the Falklands islands revealed as Royal Marine heroes medals are sold.
The medal group of a Royal Marine who was taken hostage by Argentinian terrorists when they tried to claim the Falklands 16 years before the war are being sold.
Major Alan Wiles was serving as a PT instructor for the Dad's Army-like Falkland Islands Defence Force when a hijacked Argentine airliner landed on the racecourse at Stanley.
Thinking the Douglas DC-4 plane was in distress the British army officer, who was trout fishing at the time, rushed to the scene only to be met by 18 armed hijackers.
The El Condor group, that had forced the pilot at gunpoint to divert 400 miles to the Falklands, raised the Argentine flag and demanded Britain recognised the islands as their country's.
They surrendered less than 24 hours later.
Now Maj Wiles medals are coming up for auction in London.
