Yes, but F-35 is an aircraft, while FGR4 is just a mark number. If somebody mentioned 'GR1s in RAF Germany', you wouldn't know if that was Harriers, Jags or Tornado mud-movers. I don't think it's...

Just thinking back to last night's episode, I think I remember there being five pictures on the role disposal board - other than Lightning and Typhoon I'm guessing Hawk and Texan creamie and 100 Sqn?...

I'm clearly younger than most, as my only memories of Hullavington are of flying in AEF Chipmunks circa 1990. It was a slightly surreal experience, as from entering to leaving the site you never saw...

I'm reminded of the "aircraft on conveyor belt" question, and the number of people how prefaced their (wrong) answer with "I'm an experienced pilot".

If I saw somebody wearing a non-green flying suit with a set of RAF wings over the left breast, I'd probably assume it was a serving display pilot in the absence of commercial logos, or an ex-RAF...

Is there any precedent for any squadron being "transferred" (e.g. 400+ to RCAF, 450+ to RAAF, 700+ to FAA) and then coming back to RAF?

We had a correction in post #120. If you multiply the 5 that your number ends with 1 rather than 5, your total is 296. 296 modulo 23 is 20. The 21st letter starting from A and skipping I and O is...

But surely you can only use each mark number once, and Mk 1 was the F.1? Hence Tornado GR.1 and F.2, Typhoon T.1 and F.2 etc.




I did remember that, but haven't we called 51 Sqn's new toys...
