Following the Falklands War of April 2, 1982 until June 1, 1982 the Stanley Airfield was heavily damaged so No. 1435 was reformed using Harrier GR.1 jets until May 1985 when the unit was disbanded. In 1988 No. 1435 received 4 Phantom FGR.2s before converting to 4 Panavia Tornado F3s in 1992. In 2009 4 Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 arrived at RAF Mount Pleasant in the Falklands to protect the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. ZK301/D c/n BS053 built in 2009 was one of the Eurofighters.

Designed as part of a co-operative effort by Germany, Italy and the UK to produce an air superiority fighter, the Eurofighter was first flown on March 27th, 1994. The Eurofighter is a single-seat, twin-engine, agile combat aircraft used in air-to-air, air-to-ground and tactical reconnaissance roles. It is intentionally aerodynamically unstable, which gives it its high levels of agility; but this means the Typhoon is controlled by a computerized “fly by wire” system instead of by its pilot. The Eurofighters first rate performance is matched by excellent all round vision and by sophisticated attack, identification and defensce systems and stealth technology.
