How right you are regarding Oman and its people. I spent many happy years with SOAF/RAFO on 'Vans and Defenders as a QFI and love the country and its people very much! Returned on visits several times over the years and somehow my ex-studes. seemed to know and I was always welcomed. I just hope that once the present virus problems disperse that the country will continue to move forward.

Enjoyed every minute of my time in Oman. Recall having to delay T/O due to the Sultan flying circuits in his 747. Flying with the local Huey Sqn and the crewman having been demoted because he was caught drinking aftershave. Fascinating place historically and politically.
