Hugh Hefner

The recent news of Hugh Hefner’s demise brought back some Cold War memories.

Many will remember 'QRA' and Lightning 'scrambles' as a regular weekly occurrence back in the 60s.

So it was on a day long gone that two Lightnings intercepted a 'Bear'. It was said that there was a Russian crew member in the Bear's nose who was spotted waving and smiling at the Lightning pilots. Apparently his gestures of friendship at a tense time in Cold War were a consequence of the pilot of the lead Lightning holding up a Playboy centrefold, which had apparently excited the Russian.

A slight thaw in the Cold War by said Hugh H. Perhaps Donald Trump could follow this example with Kim Jong-un!

When he was on his death bed he didn't know if he was coming or going!
