The war fought between Honduras and El Salvador in 1969 may be called the "Soccer War" as it was widely believed it started over a conflict during a Soccer Match. However, this conflict stemmed from much more than soccer matches. Named after the three hard fought World Cup qualifying matches in 1969, that were the spark that started the violence, this war was a bloody reminder that the implications of a sporting event can reach far beyond the playing field. The real conflict started years earlier with deeply-rooted problems between the two nations having to do with border and class issues that was building up for many years long before the 1969 qualifying matches took place. The three matches that were played in June of 1969 were merely a catalyst which helped to ignite an already explosive situation igniting a war. The Soccer War only lasted 100 hours and was the last war fought with piston driven aircraft. In my dramatic painting "Score!" I show a Honduras F4U-5N flown by Major Soto, shooting down an El Salvador F-51 Mustang. "FAS" stands for Fuerza Aerea de El Salvador."
