Were you purposefully disrespecting a superiour officer by not capitalising his name?

Pagey and F15s GHing over the north sea was a fantastic thing to behold. Pagey to Killer 31 flight, "Manoeuvre as required surface to FL400, limited traffic information from all around below FL100 due to the base of radar coverage, unable to provide information on low flying helicopters, large boats and jumping fish as they won't appear on radar, you're responsible for your own terrain separation etc etc." The lad would go on for hours - very good value though! Wahey Pagey - I think it's great that you've got your own Page!

WWW,

I don't recall ever warning pilots that I wouldn't be able to see large boats on radar!

Flying fish though and the odd sea gull.

I am so disappointed, all we ever got to see of you at school was sensible Pagey, damn the college and their standard phraseology denying us such gems.

Pagey told me that one day on valley radar a sneaky flight was operating over a certain town in N.Wales, not wanting to give too much away, pagey was heard to say...

Traffic information, an islander maneouvirng various levels, over... erm Wales!

The legend obviously continues. Current favourite phrase used in radar debriefs to his mentor is "well, you're probably right".

Sorry mate, you're right, tiredness and age has dulled my recollection. I remember now, you were warning them that you might actually be able to see the boats and thereby have to spend time telling the F15s about them

That's just amazing. I completely forgot about 'Barry the Radish'!!!!!! Yeah the AC over North Wales is true, I remember it well. How surreal is this fella; to have your own thread that people continue to write on!

Oh wonderful.

I was hoping that Barry the Radish would re-surface!!!

Thanks everyone. So great to see that I have had an impact on so many people's lives.

Kind Regards

Pagey - You were a LATCC legend - the Skoda especially - you are exactly what the RAF ATC Branch needed to keep, but didn't (and still don't) know how to. Please don't come back - I wouldn't stand a chance otherwise!!

EGNX are the winners here!
