Gouli:

Tinribs:

That's nothing to do with the Searchwater - it's the quality of nav input that affects the radar ground plot. Perhaps the IN in your Viscount just wasn't up to the job?

As usual, BEagle can't waste an opportunity to display his prejudices against "drones" and "drone operators." It's interesting that in his mind, PTSD can be suffered by "those...

That's not true. A Nimrod was deployed to ASI specifically to search for an aircraft that had gone missing somewhere in the S Atlantic between ASI and Africa. Don't remember the details,...

I worked with Mel in those halcyon days on 236 OCU. A gentleman, a pleasure to work (and play) with, and a real shame he's gone.

Clearly I'm not worth talking to; I only have a single AE wing and therefore am only half the man you are. Still, I can take comfort from the fact that I am better than the blokes with the single RAF...
