The rate at which they are chopping up K's, I would suggest sooner rather than later!

You are right, heaven is a HUD, but I suspect the customers we fly are more interested in the fact we can actually get airbourne with more than a landrover down the back. Oh, nowhere near MOS either.

Mb,
Don't fall for Sciatica's blether, he has already revealed on another thread that he was not good enough for selection for the J and he's probably still feeling a bit miffed at that fact

You assume I could be employed on the J?


I find the whole J v K thing a bit dull. Having spent some time at Lyneham before the J, and then with it, there was always friendly rivalry between the two sides of the airfield. Tac v route queens. These days it appears to be just the J folk trying to justify their roles in a smaller crew and running down the nav/eng roles on the K. THIS IS BORING! Your elitist attitude towards the K is BORING. Everyone knows you have a more powerful ac. The truth of the matter is that the back end could be ALOT better. After all, that's what AT is all about isn't it? Take a look at the big american jet we lease. Why hasn't the J got a similar system? Let's hope the A400M does. The K is still doing a good and job for some very demanding customers even with 180kg more balast on the flight deck, less powerful engines and no HUD. I'm not involved in either ac but I can still see that much.

Yep - this is an absolute yawn of a willy-waving contest!

Guys,

Give it a rest and get on with doing the best you can with what you've got, of course, while asking for what you haven't got but which really need.
Don't spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder at other aircraft and their successes and/or problems!

Good hunting whatever type you fly!

Always be one step ahead of the enemy!

Scitzo - if you're so bored with it why were you slagging the J off not 3 hours ago!?!?!?

Not slagging off the J fella. Just poking fun at the folk who fly them that say they're SF when clearly they are not.

It's just a shame that it's only the J that seems to be able to support this role at the moment.

As opposed to scrap heap challenge.

Ah Scabies all becomes clear

No seat on the J so why not just slag it off eh

And just remind us where and when on here did any J guys say they were SF

This guy obviously just imagined it. I'm sure the crew had no part in giving him that impression.

Deary me Scapula,

What the chap actually said was " Apparently the pilots were SF ones, well the Hereford lot used to go out with them" which sort of implies that cos the guys regularly flew the mexicans he assumed they were an SF crew

So just remind us where a "J" guy on here has ever said they were SF........nah did;nt think so

As I seem to recall the Chinook was lifting more 'in the heat of the day' than the
'K' in Afganistan......

But don't tac forget tac that the K is better tac because we tac can talk about tac all the tac'in time because the J can't do it and when it can it will clearly need a third person on the flight deck. Oh, hang on, they can do that now, and they're pretty accurate on the old air drop thing as well. And HOW MUCH can they carry off a strip

But SF they're SF not doing SF SF yet are SF they?

Give it a feckin' rest. The old aircraft is like an old Mk3 escort with lots of bling bolted onto it, and it's about as reliable as an old Mk 3 escort as well.

At least the K has a job as lead squadron in Afg. Mind you, the K guys aren't really all that good at mission planning for us either. Got to let them have a go though, after all it must be awful to be stuck an a dying fleet.

Why don't you do your own mission planning then?
