Many years back when I was a young spacey on annual camp at Coltishall we were lucky enough to be offered not one but two backseat flights, one at Colt in a Jag and the other at Wattisham in a Phantom. As 'top cadet' of the camp (being good at marching about and other such stuff) I was offered the choice, with the other slot going to the second placed cadet. I chose the Jag (not wanting to miss footie in the evening was I believe the decider) and although I really enjoyed the Jag flight (as proved by the slightly full sick bag) I always wonder (and this is in no way meant in an ungrateful manner) if I chose wisely.
