Exactly.

One must bear in mind that the AAIB report left the CAA without a name, and the judge was less than impressed with some prosecution witnesses. In fact, it is by no means certain the pilot would have...

insty66

In general terms, there is always a government minister whose role is to 'engage' with retired senior officers. Quite often the Defence spokesman in the House of Lords. I imagine the...

Forgive my intrusion in this inter-Service bunfight, but I don't recall the author having worked in Director General Aircraft (Navy) HQ - in the 80s, at least. Had he drafted any such 'submission'...

Asturias

Fully agree. Asked and answered in previous threads, and latterly in print. There for all to read. It has been suggested before that disbelievers write to MoD, then we can compare...

And as ever, the evidence has been linked to many times, on many threads... and formally published in 2016 and 2019 after MoD cleared the manuscripts.

But if you insist, the last time a Cabinet...

The way to avoid most problems, if not eradicate them, is to implement PUS's mandated policy on 'Requirement Scrutiny'. Less process, less oversight, fewer sign-offs. And at a much lower level (which...

I'm surprised that this latest news hasn't drawn more comment. If I could just add to the excellent posts of Engines and Chug.

Of the 3 groups I mentioned, RSRE/RRE was the largest. Long gone, which is what lay behind my comment. Ferranti next, and gradually overtook MoD as R&D was decimated - as you say, it survives, but in...

Good point. You are right about CC. And don't bother raising requests for fault investigations, the Design Authority reply will be unprintable. It's like voiding a warranty. Nothing to stop a SSF...
