Nasty, noisy jets

Oh, give me strength.

Penzance mother hits out at RAF claiming low-flying aircraft endangered her distressed children | West Briton

Not a lot of support in the comments.

This was also shown on "RAF Banter and Bo***ks" page on Facebook. The comments on the West Briton site are restrained in comparison with the remarks made by a few old sweats on facebook!

Apparently she is a well-known local moaner.

No doubt telling her that they were probably training to defend her freedom would not go down too well

I heard those as they made several passes but looked in vain to see them. I presumed that they were a Hawk of two from Culdrose.

There are a couple of F-15's mentioned in the replies operating in the area, she is also noted as a serial complainer.
Perhaps if they now have her address from her complaint, frequent overflights of her residence could be arranged to acclimatise her children to the noise of fast jets.

She needs to teach her sprogs the cycling equivalent of, 'Aviate, Navigate, Communicate'. Having said that, it would remove her particular line from the gene pool if she doesn't.

The Kernow chip-wrapper in question must have a very lazy bunch of reporters - that photo of Green Party activist Mrs Thompson and her children was actually taken outside the local Co-op Penzance parents question ethics of product placing in local Co-operative shops | The Cornishman and crudely photoshopped onto a background library photo...

Note the disembodied hand on the younger child's shoulder

two low-flying "bombers", which she believed were affiliated with the RAF
Loved this bit - insert your own punchline...

I am surprised the word 'compensation' was not mentioned.

Well, if not affiliated to the RAF, let's hope they were not Russian

As I've pointed out to the kids more than once , if you can hear the jet it must be one of ours - if it was attacking you'd already be dead before you got chance to hear it!

I rather suspect that she's one of the tree hugging lentil eating sandal wearing brigade. I do know that she's a Green Party member.

She is, if you type her name and location, she tree hugs on a myriad of issues, all rather banal.

Can't wait to hear whinge about the "stealth seagull" travelling at warp speed to scare her precious little creations with a low flypass.

In that part of Cornwall, the seagulls pack quite a punch! (especially if they get even the slightest wiff of yer pastie ).

Their targetting and weapons delivery is pretty good aswell.

Send 'em here! My four year old loves noisy planes although it causes consternation for the wife when he stand in the street bawling "Come on you Fokker!"
