I don't know where this misunderstanding comes from; the FG1 ramps (I never flew the FGR2) certainly were. IIRC they started to move as we accelerated through Mach 1.4

The only Borneo bases used by the 60 & 64 Sqn Javelins were Kuching and Labuan. During my time "in theatre" (1963-66) the same was true for the 20 Sqn Hunters.

I left the RAF in July, 1974 and went to Perth to obtain the Instrument Rating to complete my application for the ATPL. At that time the 310 fleet was something of a mixed bag, with little or nothing...

CM

Is it possible Heinz made the qualification up so as to create an impression in the bar?

For once, CM's post didn't tell me much and I don't mind confessing I don't know (but would like to) what a Command QFI is. Is it just modern terminology for a Trapper of some sort?

KayKay, Primrose is an unusual surname & I wondered whether this might have been the Ian Primrose who was one of my students on the Gnat some 4 years later? If so I have very good memories of him as...

I joined the staff at Scone in July, 1974 and Archie arrived soon after. We had met briefly in the RAF years before on a jet "refresher course" on Meteors . One of his claims to fame was having...

I think PICKS is right, the Waterloo Lines plaque refers only to the domestic side.

The roadside signs might cause some confusion, though, instead of RAF Leuchars they now show LEUCHARS STATION;...

The Hunter GA 11 were surely F4 converted for the Navy and so had the same 7.500 lb thrust Avon 115 ( or 121) as the T7 & T8. The higher thrust (10,000 lb) Avon 203 was first fitted to the F6.

PN

Two of theses items are in fact correct. In common with most of the Hunter 7&8s it was originally a Hunter F4 until it was converted to T7 standard by adding the two-seat nose section.
