Well, I have many hours in the Sea King and also using radars that aren't 360degs and don't have a blind arc. You are talking really only about a small proportion of the letdowns where a 360deg...

Sorry for not making myself clear, however the first paragraph in my reply was in response to your reply to Bismark, but I suspect that what you wrote wasn't really what you meant.

Crab, oh come on! I do hope you are not inferring that the crews who work on the MCA contracts or for Bond SAR do not have the same professional pride in the work they do? Those in civil SAR have...
