Perhaps understandable, to a degree, given...

I have the same issue(?!) as Stanwell - CP4 reds/greens, according to the Ishihara test... and yet the missus always congratulates me on my shirt/tie combos and even asks me to colour-coordinate her...

melmothtw, I really wasn't having a dig.

F-16 brought with it a lot of new thinking - a reclined (30-degree) seat to help g-tolerance, a side-stick controller, and that one-piece canopy (for...

F-16 is also the only in-service jet with an 'unbroken' bubble, no? Not knocking anyone but it's perhaps therefore an unfair comparison (or, if you prefer, the pinnacle/zenith of something or...

LO - what we don't seem to do well, other than for political immovables such as CVF, is guard against short-termism.

If we could find a way of guarding against that, great. Unfortunately,...

Ah... Coulby Newham TA Centre, Grob flights out of Catterick and the tricky walk home through Hemlington in uniform.

Seeing those two faces took me right back. To 1986, to be precise.

kbrockman, but doesn't that then explode the myth? Put the gubbins on a so-called 'Gen 4' and you've got most of the performance at a fraction of the cost.
