QRA

Mr Wuli, the shrunken RAF operates its Typhoons out of only two UK bases. These are Coningsby and Lossiemouth. Today's launch would almost certainly have been from Coningsby.

Basic flying skills

Again, well said, talkpedlar. It's the need to be able to fly on not just basic but sub-basic (ie, limited panel) information which seems to be in danger of being lost in these automated days.

French corporate attitudes

Well said, Capetonian. Completely justified in the light of this sorry saga (and others).

So sad, but all so very true. It's the wilful refusal to admit the benefits of a proper T&E programme, together with that ever-rarer understanding of the nitty-gritty of the job, that's at the root...

Precisely the problem with buying off-the-shelf kit from a foreign supplier. Kit almost certainly designed to operate in a different aircraft type, in a different environment and with a different...

Excellent post! Congratulations to all who have worked so hard to keep up the pressure on the politicians - especially you, tucumseh, flipster, Seldomfitforpurpose and John Blakely. All...

Many thanks for your post #8043. The weasel words of "Sir" Michael Graydon on the Radio 4 link almost defy belief. His is the mindset which has prevented justice from being done well before now. ...

Very well. Lord Philip is conducting a Review, not an Inquiry. Still not part of a judicial process, therefore still not sub judice.

No caz, it is not sub judice. That applies only when a matter is before a court of law or is being considered by a judge as part of a judicial process. However eminent a judge Lord Philip may have...

Blade Strike Damage

Hadn't been aware of this before. Doesn't it start to shift the cause markedly towards "Technical Failure - with absolutely no doubt whatsoever"? Not there yet, but certainly moving well away from...

Angry Fleet retirements

Beags,

It's obvious, mate. The politicos have decided we are going to withdraw from our role as World (or even just Commonwealth) policeman. Therefore, we don't need fancy jets. Lots of boots...

John,

Thank you for your post. Disappointed not to see you at Cottesmore yesterday - a sad but fitting final tribute to a magnificent aircraft to which you personally made such a major...

Recent posters remind me of two aphorisms attributed to the great economist, John Maynard Keynes.

1. There are only two kinds of economic forecasters: those who don't know what will happen and...

But none of the witnesses you list was actually at the crash site.

I readily accept that they were all, individually, in IMC but that is irrelevant.

What I was trying to say was that the pilots in the period of minutes immediately before the crash might just as well have been passengers - if one or more of the possible faults which I mentioned...

If the aircraft was unairworthy (and I put it no more strongly than that) then it is entirely possible that the crew, whilst doing their utmost to discharge their responsibilities, were prevented...

Thank you for yet another post which, in its clarity and simplicity, provides a devastating answer to all those trying to obscure the true circumstances which Lord Philip is now reviewing.

Sorry - I realised after posting that some of my comments could be read in the way you have indeed read them. It wasn't my intention at all to leave the impression that only TPs do T&E work.

You've hit the nail on the head! Once the destruction of independent UK T&E capability is complete, we will then have no option to buy and use absolutely standard foreign kit bought off the shelf. ...

I'm sure you're right. However, the unwritten assumption behind your comment is that all aircraft and equipment as supplied by the makers will always fail "safe". Sadly, many years of experience...

The end of UK T&E

This has already happened. It began with the move of the OEUs away from Boscombe (always their natural home) and was confirmed in the symposium at the FJTS disbandment dinner in the Spring. There,...

That is its outstanding and unique contribution to our defence capabilities. Not just the ability to use a fragment of runway, but to adapt quickly to previously unforeseen...

LXX - in the Old Days

Back in the early 60s, flew as pax in a LXX Hastings from Nicosia to Khartoum, where one of our pointy jets had gone u/s on return from a detachment to Eastleigh. An hour or so into the trip,...
