In years to come will Pully's legacy be that he allowed Air Cadet gliding to slip through our fingers?
On the contrary, (and assuming he had some personal involvement), I think he will be remembered as the man who had the balls to ground the fleet, knowing this act would serve to highlight the cowardice, incompetence and maladministration of his predecessors, who concealed the problem and were prepared to gamble with the lives of minors.

Agree about the photograph! I'd like to know if he had any editorial input.

I also agree about the astronomical waste that is, in effect, MoD policy - as it commits huge resources to defending and protecting those who insist on wasting the money. That 4Bn+ on Nimrod 2000/RMPA/MRA4 would have bought one or two gliders.
