Thanks, ORAC.

That certainly looks like it. What a marvelous location to observe parachute jumps from!

Hello, Cornish Jack.

Like most people, I don't know that much about the Beverley. I gather she was a fascinating creature.

Hi,

There are guys with a lot more knowledge than myself here, but I'll start with this.
The goal of static line mass jumps is to put a lot of paratroopers into the boundaries of the DZ. A lot of...

Hi,

Ours was 7.62x51 theirs 7.62x39 (well, I think 39 but it was definitely the shorter one).
That x51 and x39 being the length of the cartridge in mm (so, not including the bullet), their...

Hi,


What is described in the first post of this thread does not correspond with my experience (Bundeswehr and Luftwaffe) with the Germans.

Hi,


Typerated, I'm not aiming to upset you, but the RAF's depletion is not a lot different.
In describing us as having bought 160 F-16's and still operating a Mirage Wing, you are talking about...

Hi,

I don't know anything about the incident at the FARP, but back in the 1980's, the US NAVY had a magazine called "Approach".
They used to have explicit photos about the effects of not wearing...

Hi,

Is there a genuine naval aviator on this forum who believes that the Typhoon is suitable for carrier operations?
I don't think so.

Best regards, Transall.

I found post #63 by FJ2ME in the "Northrop Grumman/EADS win USAF tanker bid" thread quite interesting.

Do you actually believe in that possibility?

Hello,

I can think of valid reasons to continue the parachute training, but I'm partial to it and it has all been said before.

However, as a foreigner, I would like to point out the...

Hi,

Since this search began, I have been thinking of "DB Cooper".
He's the chap who hijacked a 727 and jumped from the rear door in the early 1970's. I gather that the parachutes he was given...

Not exactly.
The "German" Starfighter was the F-104G, and exactly the same aircraft was used by the Belgian, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian and Italian Air Force. Before their "S", the Italians...

I believe it is worth the effort to keep a parachute capability larger than...

Hi,

Is that NASA Starlifter still flying?
I believe it was built just for NASA, never allocated a USAF serial.
I bet it has unbelievably low hours compared to any USAF C-141.

Best regards,...
