Cometh the hour, cometh the man

Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

Cometh the hour, cometh the man

However, I am still of the mindset that Captain Eric Winkle Brown also deserved a very well earned Knighthood. (And thats from an ex Crab as well!). it just goes to show the power of publicity.

Tom Moore has got swept along in the publicity of the day. Chuck him one from all of us, for all of us.

Sir Eric Winkle Brown? No. Don't lower him to celeb statut please. They were all better than that. The ones who died and the ones who lived to write their books.

Why not, after all if you look up Zeitgeist in the Oxford English dictionary, there's probably a picture of Captain Tom.

I do think Winkle should've got one though.
