Another Walt, this time a Wing Commander no less

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.

Perhaps you forget “the mob“ is there so people remain free to express a view. Even the curmudgeons....

But I’ve been a civvie far longer than I was not. Three times as long, in fact.

Thanks Nutloose for drawing attention to this fine young man. I hope this thread gets donations added to his £25K for the RAF Benevolent Fund..
Thread title made 6,500+ (at present) read the thread and I thought it was amusing clickbait. (However I know many don't share my sense of humour)- I'm still awaiting Buster's riposte though.

We are all aware of how headlines often distort facts to draw you in. My 'favourite' recent one being this from the Portsmouth News:
Royal Navy's £3.2bn aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales hit by flood
SAILORS onboard Britain’s newest £3.2bn aircraft carrier HMS Prince of Wales have been battling a significant flood on the warship.
Which translates as "‘Following a minor issue with an internal system on HMS Prince of Wales the ship’s company were required to remove a small volume of water from (one compartment of) the ship."

Look Nuloose, I know you won’t see this because you have blocked me, but I am not going to let this sort of nastiness pass without comment.

Why don’t you let everyone know that you were once banned because of the nastiness and vitriol you used towards me?

I disagreed with your title for the thread, that’s all. Unfortunately, you don’t seem to be able see that and just accept that some people have a different view. Clearly you also have a few fanboys. But equally, a few people shared similar views to mine. The way of the world.

Question

Once you’ve all finished ‘handbagging’, have you donated? 😎
