Ever heard of a 'weather ship'? Where we put a Mk1 human eyeball into a flying machine to find out if the weather forecasts and ground based reports actually tie in with what can actually be seen in flight?

I often wondered why anyone even bothered, but then I was frequently surprised by the results.

Anyone claiming to know the weather conditions experienced by the crew on their approach to the Mull of Kintyre is dealing in matters of opinion and NOT matters of (incontrovertible) fact!
