Dad, I've just seen this RAF advert on Facebook Marketplace.

Flight simulator: No longer required, so free to a good home. Buyer must dismantle and collect.
Ad edit: 2 missing seats.

OK, so you said the Reds were downsizing in three ways. Now there's only seven of us, we're stuck with this contraption instead of Hawks, so what's the third way?

Have you ever heard of Skegness?

Leaked BRIXMIS imagery of the Wiggins Aerodyne showed that it had a crew of five and used unconventional techniques for achieving stability and control.

Thanks. Having taken a pop at the Flying Training debacle with that one, lets try something less controversial.

How about recruitment !

Have a go at this

I'm afraid that those with "F" for fail will not get through - you are too white.

We've lowered the entry age to 14 in the hope that some of you may qualify as aircrew before you reach 30.

Well, I am sorry but unfortunately none of you are suitable for aircrew training. However we have also assessed you for careers in motor racing...
