Worst: Finningley, two tours, developed an undying hatred for FY and the benighted area!

Lossie

Having read that lot, I'm relieved I left Lossie (and the Mob) when I did, in 1983.

Why I loined PPRuNe

During the '89 saga in Dunnunda, I lost patience one evening with the points of view being espoused, and it took off from there for me.

Queen's Silver Jubilee

G'day, all,

tinpis: The RAF used a Tucano T1, from Linton-on Ouse, RAF training base.

A single-engined turbo, tandem-seater, very nippy machine.
