It might be worth mentioning that the event on 19 February is a memorial service, the funeral taking place earlier.

careless features of the honours list

Has some sort of policy developed which ends the award of AFC with the New Year and Birthday honours ? In days gone by the AFC would have been the obvious award for someone like Sqn Ldr Andy Edgell....

I assume that each Towers Entry was the subject of a Dutch auction to determine who supplied what piece of the graduating uniform. For my Entry (79) I only remember the Bates hat (excellent) and the...

Where in the report so much ponderous self-evident detail can be found, it is surprising that area radars and local radars get not a mention. ADR and (in three cases only) GPS do get a mention, but...

This case is not a turnback if, as I think, it is defined as an attempt to land on the reciprocal of the take-off runway.

Never mind. It is a serious exercise of skill, not as seriously risky as...

What I do not understand is why R3 ever selected the flaps. If he meant to go round at 300 feet agl, he never needed to meet the “contract” requirement to select flaps down.

In deploying them, he...

We all know that flying is inherently risky. The ordinary GA pilot knows it. Pilots at all levels see it as part of their skill and practice to contain, minimise or avoid known risks.

I think we agree, all else being considered, that the aircraft should have been cruising at levels around 15,000 or 20,000 feet.

I have read every thread so far, probably not remembering all I...

GA aircraft in HM's hangars

While I was flying with the AEF at Benson in the 1990s, I was very aware of the Antonov AN-2 Colt quietly standing in our hangar.

My crew did one of those trips in the early 60s. I am sure they were happy to have someone do the nav for them, but it was ideal weather and whoever was navigating could see clearly to the horizon in...

I was always the sort of pilot that was likely, at any one time, to earn an “E” for Aircraft Knowledge. Reading the latest Special, I can see what the author is saying, but I lost track early on and...

I taught at CF for a couple of years and do not recognise the buildings captured in the grisly photos.

If the case is that only the pilot is suddenly incapacitated, leading to an increasing yaw to the right, I suggest that an experienced fixed wing pilot in the other seat would know enough to stop the...
