Although I (clearly) wasn't around at the time, over the last 12 months I've been speaking to many of the crews involved in the first 3 nights of JP233 ops back in Jan 1991 for my new book (shameless plug) and - unless of course you were there - you might be surprised at the recollections. Truly astonishing feats of combat aviation.
I've also got a VHS video taken at one of the Iraqi sites a couple of days after the ceasefire showing some of the damage and repairs. And a couple of interesting US satellite images too; unseen at the time I understand. But as I say, I can't confirm as was otherwise engaged.
Just had an email from Waterstones that my pre-order is ready to collect. Looking forward to this one.
