Just trying to defend my baby! There seems to be a great deal of ignorance of what the K actually does, mainly, it seems, from those who have never operated it.

Agree, it's getting a little samey now. I thought this was going to be a banter thread but it seems a few raw nerves were touched.

It's only 'cos I'm secretly jealous of your terribly shiny, terribly operational fancy-flashing-light adorned toy....

Its just a shame they cant just get on with there job and keep biching about how busy they are. One minute they are bored with nothing to do and now they have to much work. What has it been 8 years now we have had the J model and still not as capable as the mighty K model....

Indeed. It's somewhat akin to a Max Power Chav-Hatch, complete with body kit, dustbin-sized exhaust, TV screens and a monster stereo with flashing lights.....lots to talk about and show off, but less useful than a normal car....

Dear Dear 24B;

Body kit...yours has extra nipples...granted!!!
Dustbin sized exhaust...erm...you can have that one!!!
TV screens ..Yep..they're great!!
Monster stereo...Hmm..just been told off for Ipod FM..OOps!!!

Normal car yes...doesn't need to go to the scrappie yet.

Done 5 tours on Ks....but it's past it...really!!!

Only just been catching up with this thread, so here goes...

16B I gotta ask you buddy, did you or did you not have a problem with one of your hands on a det I seem to recall!!! I vaguely remember it looked like a [email protected]%$r cast!! In Aye You Did! LMF perhaps!?

Anyway, both aircraft do a fine job and are manned by guys and gals who do their utmost to carry out a professional job to the best of their abilities. Sometimes though there are things which are just outside of our control...All of our control. And I know with some of my landings, if you did that to me for 40 years I would start to rebel aswell!
Oh and just to clarify, we do a fine job when we are not constrained by certain sources and also have aircraft to enable us to do the job!

Oh and I agree with Guy, for once, it is just harmful banter between mates who like to get one up on each other! If anyone takes it more seriously than that...YOU'RE IN THE WRONG JOB!!!

Maybe it is time to cut some of our losses! PIN'S OUT, STAND BACK!

So if the plastic pig is so busy in the sandbox, does that mean we Klassic chaps are going to have to do all the TacDemo's and Falcs trips this season? Or are the leather flying jackets going to be dusted of all that middle eastern topsoil?

These displays require airframes which can be chucked about a bit. Straight and level flight just isn't up to the job and doesn't impress the punters.

So I guess you knew the answer before you asked it.

The free falling hairstyles down the back get a bit touchy if you start throwing them around. One run in and break hardly constitutes being chucked about a bit!

Tac Demo needs a little bit of chuckability I grant you, but we are hardly talking fitting G pants to the drivers are we? (Its bad enough reminding the navs to wear their incontinence pants).

So I take it your defensive pose has more to do with you hoping to get a bit more return for your investment in the leather flying coat and Oakleys then?
