Are you mad? It’s clearly best suited to a beret; just look at when the RN wear a cap with their PCS. I’ve always been a fan of the chip bag but there’s a time and a place for it.

I hate the police uniforms as well. Why do they have to have that silly collarless zip-up look? Have a look at European police uniforms for practical, yet smart. The French, with its light blue polo...

I like the light blue patches on the trouser pockets, just where youíre going to put your hands and get the patches really grubby. Well thought out that.

The CC-295 Kingfisher replacing it will be a very different beast. I see that there’s a gap before it becomes operational.

As is often the case, a voice of reason. There's no suggestion that Boscombe is closing and there was an instant, bizarre link between Boeing leaving and a forced relocation of ETPS. No wonder I...

Did I miss this incident? It looks like it'll be on next week, not last night. That's good spin from Ch5 to make us watch more than one episode!

A thicko question here: what makes the C295 a better purchase than the C27J? The C27J would seem to have a better range, payload and a larger, though shorter, cabin. Is the unit cost significantly...

I got about 20 minutes into the new version and deleted it. There was one particularly annoying ‘maverick’ pilot who didn’t play by the rules. Seriously annoying.

Sorry, didn’t fly it again until Dec 91, and then quite a lot in Jan 92. From what I recall, it got a good reputation as being a bag of spanners.
But you guys did a sterling job in getting it back...

Excellent, another Chinook thread.

Could I ask that Tucumseh and Chualug2 immediately inform us that excessive vibration is, of course, the fault of the regulatory system and RAF VSOs?

I’ve just finished BRIXMIS, The Last Cold War Mission by Steve Gibson. I’ve always been interested in the mission as one of my old nav instructors did a tour there. He gets a mention in the book.

I downloaded mine a couple of days ago. All very easy and I much prefer using the app as I won’t worry about forgetting it. £61 for 3 years is pretty good value.

Whilst I couldn't take photos nearly as well as either of the two protagonists, I’m certainly learning a lot about how to be patronising from these recent posts.

I have a vague recollection that the quote was placed on the fence, near the main gate at Leuchars in the 1980s when the F4s held Q there.

450-550kts, minimum of 180’ agl, so 200’ when using TFR. You could use 45 wing but 67 is probably better for the top end.
