Mr Anderson has also been interviewed by the Omega Tau podcast about his time on RAF Phantoms. It's and excellent way to spend two hours and twenty minutes.

IIRC, Nick had a very nasty accident with a barbie shortly after arriving in Oz. Good to see he got over it!

That was a great interview and a great insight into flying the F-4.

Nick is a rare animal, having been both an A1 Hawk QFI and an AD QWI, as well as a top bloke.

Quite clearly gifted with being a natural fighter pilot.

The man in picture in Key West is Nick Randerson, not Nick Anderson. Nick Randerson (Spoons) was an F4/F14/F3 QWI navigator - like the other Nick, also an exceptional aviator and top block

Let's not forget Nutty, buried in the centrefold (he'd probably like that!). A true northern gent on my F4 course.
