It would appear some pepole can't take a joke or a bit of banter anymore!!

Roll on 2012? Why? Is that when we dis-establish the Movers trade?

Have to say that having looked at the movers thread a few hours ago they display a far more sensible and measured response than quite a few posts on this thread. Maybe not too many egos to bruise?

Grrr Look at the Heirachy

I'm so glad to be on the outside working with proffesionals and an outfit that works together to achieve a common goal, instead of a team of individuals who are too busy bickering and pursuing their own selfish interests without a damn for anyone else but themselves. Good luck to the lot of you. And, I have no doubt that the blame for this incident will fall fully on 1 individual to cover up the years of neglect by the leaders who never listened to the voices of experience on that squadron.

Lions and Donkeys

Can't agree more with rsb. Not so much lions led by donkeys as monkeys led by chimps. No meaningful selection, no meaningful training (outside fast jet CFS), no meaningful leadership, ever... It's coming to a sqn near you guys. Movers are generally clueless, aircrew kid themselves they are any better, cover your ass people, nobody else will do it for you!

At the risk of keeping this thread alive long after it should be buried without honours...
Whether we like it or not there is a definite perception that aircrew related incidents are treated by those on high with more sympathy than groundcrew related ones, a belief that leads to a sense of injustice. With the slow take-up of HFOR this is hopefully being redressed, fingers crossed.
I well recall an incident at our secret Wiltshire base when one of our cabs got itself damaged in a flying incident. A board of enquiry was convened and, at some point, began examining the engineering paperwork raised to recover the airframe. An anomoly was found which caused such excitement amongst the BOI team that their pursual of this avenue of investigation threatened to overshadow (not my words, the words of our bosses) the fact that their initial remit had been to investigate the flying incident that had led to the paperwork being raised in the first place

Forgive me while I yawn. Thought this thread was about the TriStar not the Movers.

Topic drift, it happens. Human nature and all that. Doesn't make any of the points raised less valid even if they are not immediately related to the OP. Better to cover it one thread than start multiple threads each time a change of direction occurs IMHO.

Blakey/Wilts,
I searched out the Movers v Loadies thread a few nights ago cos I was bored and wanted a laugh. Would you believe it....some git has actually closed it. Bloody cheek.

Might have to start up a new thread and get some proper banter going again. What to call it though I wonder ?

Nah lets go with The Military, including RAFP v Movers as thats how, and rightly so, it always ends up

And still nothing on what happened just inane dribble on the merits or not of other trades. Being the FE on the last tail strike with Air Luxor I would be interested to hear what happened to this one. It would also be nice to read posts that do answer the title.
