As an aside, I see that the RAF log-book layout has hardly changed since my father made his first entry** in 1936. The left hand side is exactly the same, but on the right there were then separate columns for Single and Multi-engine times, day and night, and 2 columns, Dual or Pilot, for Instrument/Cloud Flying times,

** 1 Air Experience. 2 Taxying and handling of engine, and action in event of fire. DH 82, P1 F/O W/Slade, 20 minutes.

I wonder what "Action in event of fire" was. 27 years later, in the club Austers, I was taught, IIRC, that if a fire started it was Fuel off, sideslip hard, force land. But then we didn't wear a parachute.

Back to the thread.
