On Tornados there were essentially 3 levels of preparedness:

That video looks to me like a nasty example of ‘hidden ridge’, a known illusion where terrain in the foreground has a similar appearance to that in the background and ‘disappears’ until it starts to...

The services are so desperate to retain people that I can’t see promotions or extensions being used as leverage to get people onto AFPS15. As the issue was age discrimination between those entitled...

Never understood why this PFI malarkey continued after it was first outed as being a way for the Government to ‘borrow’ without increasing public sector borrowing ratios. At least in that guise it...

“The real Top Gun” and “[Valley] is the Oxford or Cambridge of fighter pilot training”? The QWI staff at Coningsby might take a different view... Holyhead Comprehensive, maybe 😉

I want to know that, too. My example would be a driver who's just caused a terrible road accident through poor judgement and claims cognitive impairment.

Caramba,

You're inferring specifics from a general point, which wasn't that AH's flying mirrored Bud Holland's. The point is that in a putative trial of Lt Col Holland, a defence so minded could...

WEBF,

I note you didn’t really engage with the important point that the timeline has favoured the attacker for some time. It’s very well for your analyst to say that it’s better to engage the...

WEBF,

Where are you expecting this task group to operate?

If it’s in the Pacific then yes, history tells us that carriers are practically essential, hence my earlier reference to American and...

Impermeability is conferred by the clay core of the dam, which must still be in place or the dam would have given way on the night of the occurrence. The sand bags simply replace the (permeable)...

It was identified as a strategic risk. That's different to saying that it would lead to a specific outcome as a matter of policy. But to calibrate: take the response to the Nimrod loss, multiply the...

pr00ne,

Where there's Gove, there's Cummings. At least that's what the civil servants I know say! There's clearly a centralising focus because of 31 October, but if the Government survives beyond...
