I'm coming at this one a bit late, but the whole point of this thread is flawed from the start - John F, you are not quoting Flight when you say that the USA has 13,902 fixed-wing combat aircraft....

Hi, iRaven - this was the first accident involving an upgraded Lynx AH9A, which has put on a lot of hours under tough conditions in Afghan. That at least is a pretty good safety record, IMHO.

At the risk of wading in where there are many ingrained opinions at play - I don't believe that it was ultimately the MAA's decision to order Rivet Joint, so a bit much to blame them if it's found...

No, VinRouge, they are resuming the reliability test, not restarting it. While some parts of the work covered in the previously completed 160 aircraft flight hours might need to be covered again,...

Hi lj101,
Yes, it did strike me that the RAF is going to be looking a bit AAR-light if the VC10s are gone by March 2013 and the TriStars by the end of the same year. But I think that the way the PFI...

I think you're referring to a pretty old Flightglobal article, Giblets. The J's retirement date was brought forward as part of SDSR, which was about 16 months ago. I'm not sure the plan to see them...

ZZ666? Oh dear, I didn't think they'd go down that route again after the ditching incident with Nimrod R1 XW666, or "Damian". Heard of tempting fate, anyone?!

Nice work, Alex - us reporters don't get much chance to develop fighter-type g-tolerance (I feel sick every time even I put a mask on while we're still on the ground), so there's no shame in going...

I was a boarder at Abingdon School at the time and saw this accident from my dormitory window. It was very evident from the ground that the aircraft wasn't going to complete the manoeuvre, and I...

I only saw a bit on the telly, but was glad that we decided to see Muse at Wembley on Friday; I certainly wouldn't have swapped my ticket for the likes of The Saturdays, good cause or not!!

Jacko, with respect, I think you are being a bit naive here. Go ahead and actually find out if any of your half dozen blokes who could have done a better job (current pilot mates, presumably) would...

Yes, Flight International has done an article from a ride in Typhoon, but it did not "choose" to send the defence editor rather than its tame test pilot. When the ride was offered (by the RAF with...

I think we'll just agree to differ, MigthyGem - if describing a journalist's work as "only writing up what he's been told by an RAF spokesman" isn't criticism then I'm not sure what is.
