Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Whatever you do don't encourage him

he was a great pilot who served his country well but has turned into a total obsessive self publicist who no-one takes seriously (unless they are newspaper editor short of an inflammatory quote)

The quickest way to wind Sharky up is to remind him that in 1923, the name Fleet Air Arm was given to naval aircraft but it was the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Air Force.

It must be admitted that the RN were not best served by the RAF and I commend books by Cdr David Hobbs for a measured commentary on the difficulties experienced.
