That looks like an RAN Skyhawk, too. Almost positive the RAN didn't deploy into the Falklands. Also, that nose is bending like an elephant's trunk.

I sense shoopery is afoot.

Royal Australian Navy - Submarine Aircraft Carrier - 1970

The Royal Australian Navy Skyhawk, being an all-purpose aircraft, was the subject of a 1970s experimental sea trial of an A-4 on board a Royal Australian Navy submarine. There was no objection from the aviators to operating the Skyhawk from the somewhat limited deck space of the submarine. A problem with the Skyhawk's turbine cavitating while underway submerged was overcome. The diesel catapult worked just fine. However, the experiment was abandoned when the submarine's XO objected to the jet blast burning the paintwork off the sail.

For us uninitiated, this is always a good site to remind us of our gullibility: https://www.skeptic.com/
