Crab I agree,
Well I may be an old military FJ pilot, but I bet I have made more landings in my life than many 40,000hrs plus civilian airline pilots. And i'd still rather have my hands on the stick...

Did this with Tornado F3 v Puma and found it quite difficult to see the heli. However, once seen, the Puma tended to go to ground. If the spot was marked I suspect a hundred rounds of 27mm close to...

Ah, Binbrook, remote, but best Officers Mess in the UK. For those who knew it, don't go back it is a sad derelict site.

I doubt whether my drill Sergeant - Flt Sgt Paddy Fogarty would have approved of ladies in the Regiment. Indeed he approved of very little we cadets did at Cranwell. However he was a great bloke, he...

Haraka,
Interesting point you make. The Brookes centrifuge in the USA allowed 8 G for 30 seconds without G suite. Those pilots who passed out usually did so on the downside when the G came off and...

Onceapilot,
Thanks for your kind support, I flew the F15 in younger days - a 9G machine - but age catches up on everyone.
Many other factors mitigate against flying too long in cutting edge...

At the age of 48, still flying the Tornado, only occasionally, I found my ability to read flip cards at night and pull lots of G was no longer optimum. I had always felt that before the point that a...

To add to KWs comments, both my children went to fee paying schools, not because I wanted to send them, or because the RAF helped pay, but because we moved 5 times during their secondary schooling....

Why do we continue to have these stupid arguments? The fact is, we never see where the next threat is coming from. We continue to fashion our forces on the last threat. We have to have a broader...

Well, if I am officially a sausage - though younger than many, I would still like to say that many of you are rubbishing a very good charity. Hope you never have recourse to its support.

Deepest sympathy to you and all Peter's relations. Your Dad was my Station Commander at RAF Gutersloh in the early 70s and flew with us regularly. I later flew him in a Lightning out of...

MPN,
RAFA and RBL both do great work. My only thought is that we do not damn "Clubs" where volunteers meet and often plan anddo great things for our Service charities.
