So I take it that you're saying QRs are being disregarded in this case whereas they are applied with utter rigidity to all other officers and airmen.

I actually think it good for the RAF that he...

I think Wills' batman needs to inform HRH of the de rigeur sartorial titfer tilt of at least 30 degrees on the chip packet.

That's the way to do it:

Hurrah, it's me.

I'm back, and for those that were wondering, no I was not beaten down by the fierce banter nor did I need to take medication. I've been away on a cse without internet access and so am amazed to see...

WRAITH,


That's where you suggested otherwise. That part of what you said is not correct. A force can exist without consuming energy, for example the centripetal force in circular motion. There...

Genghis, would you care to comment on John Farley's paragraph which I quoted? I believe that he knows what he's talking about more than most.

This is becoming like the bl00dy conveyor belt, so I'll call it a day after this one.

Thank you Deliv. No, I am not mental. My comments are based on an A grade in Maths Mechanics A Level, 1st Class Honours in Aero Eng from one of the big 3 universities, RAF wings, the teaching...

OK final point, thank God, and I'm going to bed.

PBA and Deliv, you've hit the nail.



I suppose the turn in the hover is the ultimate example of an aggressive turn, possibly a Rate 10 turn. A turn in forward flight will be less rapid to...

Yes the aircraft flies with respect to its airmass, but its momentum is related to groundspeed.
