Think I've posted this story before but years ago.


Guy on the same entry as me (99) at Cranners didn't seem to us to be a star but the QFIs obviously thought differently - he graduated from BFTS went to AFTS on the Folland Gnat. Then posted onto Lightnings - he was a good pilot.


Years later I bumped into him one evening in the bar at Leuchars when he was flying F4s. I asked him what he thought about having a Navigator in the back seat.


He replied "pound for pound - I'd rather have the fuel".


Best wishes SOS


P.S. Are you still out there Nige?
