Rhino Power: Excellent pic, jet looks good. The only issue I have is with the dates on the fin. I was on the staff at TTTE at the beginning of 1981, with the aircraft very much in service (if not...

Bet The Bucc guys were happy they didn't have to fly! Spent many happy hours (pre-HAS days) watching the water draining into the side panels after a rainy crew-in, and waiting for something to fail!

Long Transits

The introduction of tankers with windows down the back introduced a whole new level of stress into AAR trails. I remember a trip back across the pond where each bracket would see every window packed...

QB Flypast

Well said BV!

To those whining about the poor perception of the RAF by the Great British Public, you should be ready to step in to say what a great job the Reds did to get there at all! The...

Very much saddened by this news - far too young. One of life's truly nice guys, and an exceptional pilot. Blue skies Hoppy.

Eton (Eaten) Mess

Thanks Ricardian, I know what it is and I'm sure that's what Mrs would have been given had she ordered it - the (very) mild amusement was in how it was written on the menu, but thanks for helping out...

Reminded me of an evening meal at...

Leeches and oxygen thieves

Even more iniquitous - "a group of MPs" is suggesting that policemen who misbehave should have their pensions cut. What about "an independent body" to suggest options for what should happen to MPs!...
