Thank goodness (is it the BIG PDF 4.4Gb?) did not put you to sleep, unlike the BIG BLUE SLEEPING PILL (USN NATOPS - later versions had a blue cover apparently). Regarding the Vampire section I would be happy to expand on any parts written by me about the 'precession during take off of the attitude indicator and the 'three needle altimeter' (some RAN Vampires did not have the 10K flag IIRC). There were two distinct Vampire variants in the RAN FAA. One had dual AIs which meant with the seat down instrument the flying right hand on control column obscured the AI. Nice.
