”Yes, dividing up the hours for the crew logbooks is a nightmare!”

Designed to cater for the requirements of the lawyers, the accountants and the health and safety committees. Take them along. Of course, the project failed when the aircraft never got as far as the runway.

At Scampton the Red Arrows are able to show each pilot knows exactly the routine of the other members.
