Tristar vs Voyager

OAP

In fairness to PN he did say offload. Over a lengthy on task over Afghan the Voyager would be able to give more away (less burn and lower off task fuel). Not only that but it can give it away...

Easy

So do we go for the MRTT -the only boom version at the moment ? What would that do for the contract? Not my PFI but I suspect that would complicate the 3PR side of things somewhat, hence...

i take it they will need to modified to hose and drogue for RAF Service.

NL

That is not the plan with the P8 so why this ac? Pity we chose PFI convenience over STANAG compliance.

I am still pretty sure that the pensions of a spec aircrew Flt Lt, a single list Sqn Ldr and a Spec aircrew Sqn Ldr would be very similar. Something to do with the enhancement of the Flt Lt pension...

SA Pension

My recollection was that there was an enhancement of pension for SA which would have taken my Flt Lt pension to the same as a Sqn Ldr give or take a fiver. As luck would have it PA...

Beags

I take it you were comparing the BDA on load with the Victor wing pod. If memory serves, by choice we used to refuel Phantoms on the HDU with a rate of 4500 lbs a min

Is this not the workplace for them?
