If it's innovation you want then get hold of the aircrew and some of their management that have made it possible to keep SAR Sea Kings in the air in recent years against the odds, maintained remarkably high standards with old weary kit, constantly developed SH operations in theatre and generally kept the whole show on the road and kept smiling.

If you expect the same innovative approach from Southampton or Abbey Wood then I fear there may be some disappointment. We've already had the KPI conversation on here and getting those numbers in the right boxes and on the right colour of paper could easily be what becomes important if the normal pattern of public procurement prevails.
