The president visited Bahia Blanca base to see the Super Etendard aircraft, equipped with Exocet missiles, that are stationed there and to meet the pilots and ground crews. At Puerto Belgrano, an important naval base during the Falklands war, the president was piped aboard the destroyer Almirante Brown, named after the founder of the Argentine Nave.
