Crab, I have to call you out on the comment above. Any squadron is at the whim of the aircrew/engineer interface - I've served on 2 "big" ASW squadrons and while there's always a few lazy aircrew -...

My chats with the other 849 boys who were there that night led me to believe the air was carrying a lot of sand that night. In those conditions (like being in cloud) it don't matter none if you're...

Agree with previous posts about the idea of lifting MRT. The north side of Ben Nevis is hard enough without having to do it 3 times instead of 1 - you need a big cab for that work. Interestingly, all...
