I too wouldn't have missed it. I left because of a total lack of prospects in 1988 (just before they first paid people to leave).

I do remember lots of people who had a higher rank than me being totally useless and having to suffer under them. The only reason they were there was because they had done the time and they had been promoted as the easy option of getting rid of them.

Met one or two idiots in civvy street too, but at least I had the advantage of being able to tell them where to go if I wished and the option of leaving for another job should I care to.

I do miss the airforce at times, but its a different world these days. Saddly not the same animal anymore.
