Left the Bucc in 1983 and onto Tornado!

However, was tasked as a pair and found a group of: 2 x Krivaks; Kresta II and Boris Chilikin off the north of Scotland in 1977 that had been lost by the Kipper Fleet. Went from Honington (12 Sqn) armed with 2 x ARM (real) seeker heads and managed to gain a lock on the Topsail as we left the Victor over Tain Range! Brilliant day out beating 7 shades out of the Soviets, who were in alternating RAS at the time, before landing at Lossie for a nightstop and a long session in the Scruffs! Those were the days. However, I guess we must have pi**ed off one of the Krivak captains as he made a point, upon completion of his RAS, in showing us just how quickly he could get it from 0-60! (well 40 actually)!

Hey, Foldie you lucky sod getting that trip in Thunder City!
It's nice to have mates!
