After completing a rudimentary second pilot's course at 242 OCU Dishforth in 1957 I was "invited" to stay on for a few months to act as a staff second pilot to trainee captains. As three point landings were standard at that time I soon learned to keep my eyes shut after we collided with the runway and began bouncing across north Yorkshire. I understand wheeler landings were preferred in the latter years of the Hastings service life.
