Not sure how you made the jump to me questioning how challenging and dangerous (sometimes) SAR can be. My point was that RAF SAR (bar 84 Sqn) had almost no military value by the end except as a good...

It's far too simplistic to boil this down to the last 20 seconds or so where things rapidly went wrong. No doubt there were many layers of failure starting way before the incident and permeating...

You'd have to be going some to put a 101 on it's side during a ground run. It's a pretty stable machine in that environment so would either have to be gross mishandling or mechanical failure.

Ask to speak with the Officer Commanding of your AFCO. Be honest and open with her/him and they should give you the right advice. Best of luck.

I would suggest that the risk of mid-air collision in a well briefed close formation sortie is minimal. The fact that they were mixed types flown by civilian and military crews is irrelevant so long...

I'm not convinced the accident rate stats back-up the rose-tinted spectacle view Crab. There's plenty of evidence to show that a lot of aviators didn't 'get away with all that stuff' in the past.
