Can't believe that I have only just heard this tragic news. Devastating for all who knew, loved and admired him. He and Dot would land at our local grass strip here in the Midlands and stay with us...

There is a small grass strip about half a mile from my village and during the summer weekends we get some interesting little prop-jobs pottering about, doing aeros, etc. My neighbour's wife,...

Very sad indeed. I spent two glorious years at Elmendorf in the 70s and so I have a soft spot for the base and its personnel. I wish them all well.

Bin the Navy except for the Trident subs, give the RAF the sole role of AD of the UK and turn the Army into the Home Guard. That's all we need for our national defence and everyone else can look...

Yes to the ladder question.

Regarding multi-ship take-offs, in my early days on the F-4 we used to do 3-ship 'Vic' take-offs. I was one of a flight to spend a few days at Spangdahlem with a USAF...

At least the fighter department wouldn't do something as daft as this. There is no way that they would buy 15 cast-off 1960s jets from, say, the US Navy when the only common item would be the radome...

Would have been OK in this part of the Midlands, though, as it was seldom the 'gentry' doing the hunting. It has always been assumed by those too class-conscious to think about it that fox-hunters...
