So, as the report says



the pilot thought it sensible to shove the stick forward (probably not a bad plan) but put in full right rudder?!!

Hmmm. Not really sure what you mean. In the hover the wing produces no lift therefore no compensation is required. I seem to recall the 7/9 wing would produce about 1500lbs down to about 30 kts...

I honestly don’t have an issue with anyone leaving BA. Crack on! Everyone has different situations and needs and if somewhere else ticks the boxes then go for it! BA is neither better or worse than...

Perhaps it’s an indication of generational change but I’m a bit surprised at some of the posts on this. If it had been a male squaddie doing this to a female would the response have been the same? We...

Surely the Spitfire was only cleared for a Run and Break therefore the runway was not required to be clear? It doesn’t matter where the Chinook was on the runway, the Spitfire only needed clearance...

I am intrigued as to how targeting and aiming was done in a 90deg dive. As Winkle says you can correct for azimuth errors in a 70deg dive by ailerons but surely that’s not available in a pure...

The USMC were always more focussed on air combat than the RAF and so perhaps practiced using the nozzles a bit more but the old “quick viff and he’ll fly right by” is really a non starter. The...

212man,
