Almost certainly SAR training for use in the Falklands where it is the only asset.

I’m also fairly certain that the flight deck is never sullied by the presence of a navigator!!

Herod: figure of 35,000ft taken from that reliable source, Wikipedia, so it must be right!!

Currently around 7 years to the frontline for FJ, a little quicker for ME & rotary but all streams facing multiple & extended holds. Things should be getting better through the use of alternatives...
