LJ,
Thanks for the correction - I was going from memory. The 800 KCAS was what I remember from the R to S trials and I thought that had become the NE limit - my mistake. Must dig out some old...

There has been very little mention of WWII warbirds - yet! In that category, of the ones that I have flown definitely the Grumman F6F Hellcat. It is a fantastic flying machine.

At low level, 350-550 KIAS, I agree that it was very good. But in the landing pattern it had some of the worst flying qualities I have ever seen! The C2 Greyhound is the only other one that was as...

There is one museum in the UK in which there are 3 jets that I have flown in service, that is individual airframes, not types, and that makes you feel old! I have flown the last trip of one type...

From memory, we went to 20 000 ft when we cleared this fit although that was not stipulated as a limit. I think that BAeS had only been to 10 or 15 000 ft.

Are you sure that this flight was Goose...

I agree with all above. The seats on the GA11 (can’t remember whether they were Mk 2 or 3) were 0/90 also, as were all of those on the F58s that I have flown, and that dates back to when they first...

The single seat F58s had Mk 3 seats and to the best of my knowledge the two seat T 68s had Mk 4 seats. I am not aware of any Hunter ever being fitted with a zero-zero seat.
