Female fast jet pilots

Females have been flying fast jets for longer than many people know.

Early sixties....

SAS, don't kid yourself - you know you couldn't catch a fast one and neither could I.

And if he did catch one would he know what to do with it?

SAS, you know you're old when you like looking at the fillies but can't remember why. I'd say you've got plenty of mileage left.

Is that Doddy on the extreme left of the rear row?

Is it a blemish on the photo, or is one of those ladies really sporting a Hitler moustache? Hopefully the former!

Pilots have to stop kerbing their rims when they park.

When I leer at the Fillies....I know why!

Sadly I am limited to humming that old Southern Baptist Hymn "Precious Memories"!
