Apparently the army is going to mothball half of its new Apache AH-64s because they haven't got enough pilots to fly them ! :rolleyes:

It's only tax payers money! Gordon B will sort the finances, come next budget.

My pension's up for grabs. Then again, it seems that he's already sussed that !

:mad: :mad: :mad:

Thought == get Gordo to fly one ! Just teach him the take off procedure and leave him to it. 45m well spent !
