I'm so glad I handed over as Duty Auth on the ops desk at the OCU before the phones started ringing that day.

Amen to that. I read about this in a couple of old news clippings and became
intrigued by it. Thanks for all the replies and information. Great stuff.
(I'm sure the late Mr Bader would have approved).

Tommy

While Nav training at Finningley, i regularly had the pleasure of flying with Tommy. Actually very enjoyable but he always wanted to visit some stable belonging to friend, which for a baby Nav trying to keep on time and on route was a bit disconcerting. He took me there so often, i started to plan it into every flight when i knew he was my pilot.
