When I was at Seletar in the 60s we had a squadron of Beverleys. The prop clearance on this aircraft was about 7 feet and although it was forbidden some of the blokes used to take a short cut under the props. This was ok until one of them got a posting across to the Argosy squadron at Changi and tried the same trick there, with predictable fatal results.
