At theend of the day the MOD will be double losers

I would imagine that the MoD will sensibly elect to leave/scrap the kit as they can't afford the UOR costs from their budget.

The Treasury will then notice that they have an entry on the balance...

I realise there is a difference between Actual, Grid, and Magnetic but I'm pretty certain if you flew as far as you could and then turned you'd be heading anywhere but south.

How long did it take

Slightly off topic, but looking at any map of the UK it seems that one is never very far from a WWII airfield. They seem to have been stamped onto the landscape with a giant rubber stamp almost willy...

Whatever happened to concurrent activity?

Why was that not being done at the same time the plane was being built? I've worked on commissioning large industrial plant and we had to have the SOPs, operations manuals, and all the staff trained...

Obvious question from an outsider

I note from the comments on some of the pictures that PA1 has been flying for six years. I'm a Control Engineer by trade but these days just a taxpayer so my question is fairly simple:

I would imagine that a considerable part of the costs so far have fallen under the development column.

Who retains the IP rights to these developments? I assume it's not the MOD.

They can't want what they don't know about.

If we want them to behave more like "us" then they are going to have to find out what that means. Instead (or as well) as handing out wind up radios we need to hand out free satellite systems so that...
