On May 21, 1982, piloting the Aermacchi, Crippa defied all odds by attacking the English fleet alone in the San Carlos Strait.

The Aermacchi MC339 plane, which carried out one of the most daring and brave acts during the Malvinas War, is back on Argentine soil. This iconic plane, piloted by Lieutenant Guillermo Owen Crippa, returns as a symbol of heroism and sacrifice at a crucial moment in the country's history.

On 21 May 1982, Lieutenant Crippa defied all odds by attacking the English fleet alone in the San Carlos Strait. Despite being at a disadvantage and facing an overwhelming force, Crippa demonstrated great skill and determination as he dodged projectiles and drew a detailed sketch of the disposition of enemy ships.

Crippa 's bravery and ability to engage the enemy fleet not only shocked the world, but was also instrumental in the success of future attacks on the British fleet. His feat became a source of inspiration and pride for the entire country, and now his plane will be exhibited in an interactive museum in Sunchales, his hometown, as a tribute to his legacy.

The display of the aircraft at the Sunchales museum will not only honor the memory of Lieutenant Crippa, but will also serve as a permanent reminder of the sacrifice and bravery of all those who fought in the Malvinas War. This initiative seeks to keep alive the memory of those who honorably defended Argentine sovereignty in the Malvinas Islands.
