 Colonel Carter has a Brit team with Rob Henschel ready to depart Stanley now. We will need a time jump though as I estimated it would take around 3.5 hours to get there.

We'll wait for the Falklands team to get going. That's my best suggestion at this time. Possibly we'll have to do a couple of time jumps. In the meantime those already on the ground should be looking for other points of entry. They will know by now that Cate isn't a mere pilot and she can take care of herself. As hinted in IC, she has actually been through this before, only worse. :D

 Obviously we do have a problem with that don't we?  :D

 So okay, what options do we have?

 In the first instance, patience, something will always turn up, so without giving too much away, help will be at hand soon.

 Yet in the meantime lets think about the bunker. Logically would there really be one way in?
 Nooooo of course not. We could suppose there is a back door, an escape route for them, which we can also suppose feeds out onto the Brazilian side of the mountain; so scratch that.

 What else? Actually think about it. They need air, lots of it don't they? Then we're in an area with some of the heaviest rainfall on Earth, so flooding might be a problem at times, where does that water go if it gets in? Outflow, sewerage and general water disposal, that has to come out somewhere doesn't it?

 So there ya go. All is not so black and white.  :busy

News Flash CNN:
Argentine President Roberto Indigalio, along with his immediate family, four cabinet Ministers and their families with several senior members of the military hierarchy have just landed in Asunción, Paraguay. It appears from early reports they are seeking asylum and permission from the Paraguayan Government to set up their own Government in exile. More news as it comes to hand.

I thought it would be good to see pics of all and everything that we might be using here, everything from the awesome wow factor to the mundane. Army, Navy, Air Force and the rest. Your favorite wish list toys .....which ain't just for the boys either  :P
