I assume you're aware of the thread on Private Flying? Also referenced on this thread just a few posts higher...

To my horror I have just read this on the Fleet Air Arm Officers' Association website:

The FAAOA has kindly been offered 10 tickets to the BRNC Taranto Night Dinner on Thursday 17th November 2016. The event is open to all serving and retired FAA Pilots, Observers, ATC, AEO and AV Officers.

The Taranto Dinner provides the perfect opportunity for the Officer Cadets at the college to be introduced to the Fleet Air Arm tribe and to experience the camaraderie and spirit of those they one day aspire to join. Guest of Honour this year is Tracey Curtis-Taylor.

Your opening three words... "To my horror.."
My thoughts exactly.

"Guest of Honour" .. Do they know what the word 'Honour' means? .. Gawd save us.
No doubt, Artemis Investments and Boeing have already secured prime tables at this glittering event.
I also hope they've thought to invite amenable media hacks and the "Rent-a-Kents" along for a free feed as well.

Seems there are considerably more gullible people (even in positions of responsibility) out there than I could have imagined.
Ten tickets only, eh?
Better get in quick - you don't want to be trampled in the rush!

What's the Door Prize? A discounted Family Pass to Tracey's Fantasyworld for the rest of the year? ..
