There is a story, just possibly untrue, that on return from the lease to BA, there was a placard at the FE station, in Gaelic. Translated into English it said "This aeroplane must be flown green...

SOAF had no Hunters until at least 1970, so it would have been a slow journey.

Somehow I seem to have been late to the game of the suffix letter. I was a regular from 61 to 78, then joined the VR(T) to fly with an AEF. It must have been sometime in the 90s when HQ AC started...

The BY 737 was probably G-AVRN or RO. RL and RM were also in the fleet, but had lower MGW and probably would not be used on sectors as long as those you mention. The flights ran for several years;...

Don't need to guess: deHavilland, Vampire T11 (and I expect others too); gear and flap adjacent, out of sight, side by side, down by the LH side of the seat. Wonderful.
