Evidence is found of how they flew the Phantom between the hangers at St Athan * gratuitous use of the word Phantom for the misty eye'd ** yes I know it is a not a Phantom but would not work unless the word Phantom is used.

The Camouflage Assessment Unit (annual budget 1250 M) considers the proposed paint-scheme against a background of American clouds.

Optional extra

Next stop, Hawaii, to consider Hawaiian clouds. Regrettably, says the CO, we may have to wait several weeks for the clouds to appear.

Tests are being carried out to establish the difference between 'loitering' and 'hanging about.'

A Policy Committee of twenty will then meet to discuss necessary alterations to the Operations Manual. It will report within the next year.

Determined to prove their green credentials, BAe demonstrate the Harrier's capabilities without using any aviation fuel. Or a Harrier.

Autoland: a safe arrival is guaranteed even from this unfortunate starting point.

The next technical challenge is to fly the aircraft into the harness.

"A boffin at BAe came up with the idea, why build special aircraft carriers when we have acres of flat surfaces on either side of the ship, so why not use that rather like a fridge magnet, the trouble we are having is finding magnets strong enough to stick them on, but BAe have signed a multi billion dollar open ended development contract with the MOD."
