Sorry, didn’t fly it again until Dec 91, and then quite a lot in Jan 92. From what I recall, it got a good reputation as being a bag of spanners.
But you guys did a sterling job in getting it back...

Didn't stop us. If you were a Dharhan man, you will, of course know that.

Excellent, another Chinook thread.

Could I ask that Tucumseh and Chualug2 immediately inform us that excessive vibration is, of course, the fault of the regulatory system and RAF VSOs?

I enjoyed the fact that the March past was limited. Over the past few years it’s grown to become all sorts of ‘odds & sods’ to the point that a lot of organisations represented seem to be there just...

I’ve just finished BRIXMIS, The Last Cold War Mission by Steve Gibson. I’ve always been interested in the mission as one of my old nav instructors did a tour there. He gets a mention in the book.

Well you stick to the old folks card and I’ll use the veterans’ card as I’ve got 15 years to go before I’m eligible for yours.
That’s the point though, isn’t it, it fills a nice gaps between the the...

I downloaded mine a couple of days ago. All very easy and I much prefer using the app as I won’t worry about forgetting it. £61 for 3 years is pretty good value.

Whilst I couldn't take photos nearly as well as either of the two protagonists, I’m certainly learning a lot about how to be patronising from these recent posts.

Cpl C, your accusation was that his experience was invalid because he’d spent a lot of time being away from the RAF, despite him being an RAF flt cdr, sqn cdr, and stn cdr. The insinuation was that...

It was a vague recollection of what I was possibly told. And I’m getting forgetful with age. Is that suitably ambiguous to weasel my way out? 😂
Mind you, it was pretty close and almost in the spirit...

No, keep it going, that’s what this site is all about!

I have a vague recollection that the quote was placed on the fence, near the main gate at Leuchars in the 1980s when the F4s held Q there.

450-550kts, minimum of 180’ agl, so 200’ when using TFR. You could use 45 wing but 67 is probably better for the top end.

I realise that we’ve drifted towards AAR (are there any threads that don’t drift?) but how long has the Airtanker PFI got left to run? Curiosity, nothing else.
