Dan. Good spot. Of course all the space in the SS liferaft is taken up by the 'special' boots worn ONLY by Harrier mates.

I bet there are still guys out there wearing them.....��

I was at Wittering at the time and we had the one with a Kapton fire in the back end. For a while there was a suggestion that our front and the 3(F) back end should be made into a single aircraft, but the idea was later discounted - dunno why.

Love the liferaft.

If it wasn’t for that, they’d have been done for.
