Everything to do with infrastructure is a shambles, but to be fair on our lords and masters, they do know about it and agree that it is a shambles. The trouble is there is practically nothing they...

The fins of modern airliners seem proportionally larger than those of older in-service types like E-3 and RJ. But are modern RAF transport aircraft like Voyager and C17 so limited? 25kts sounds more...

SPT / EPT / NPT long names as spoken on R/T are South Point, East Point, North Point respectively. However these points and the TACAN routes are not recognised by IFPS as they are only used by...

Minor but important correction to an earlier poster: MPs are democratically elected; ministers are appointed by the PM, typically (but not exclusively) from the body of MPs. It would be perfectly in...

GAT is routinely used by FJs on ops; I’ve many hours up and down the Gulf working Bahrain, Kuwait etc out of the ‘Deid on Op TELIC. And it’s GAT for all players out of Akrotiri at the moment as well....

There’s a lot of harking back to the holding generation of the mid-to-late 1990s to (sort of) excuse the parlous state of MFTS. However a much less flattering comparison is with the state of the...

A propos of nothing, there does seem to be a bit of a puritanical streak in the upper echelons of all 3 services at the moment. In the RAF’s case I can think of particular individuals who set that...

Someone will be along to tell you that the decrease in chop rate is because the RAF can afford to be pickier about its candidates at selection given the gradual decrease in annual requirement and the...

Yes, GR4... these stick tops (front cockpit only in 2-stickers) were part of the upgrade from GR1.

Pressing down on the radio transmit switch selected air-to-air weapons and the relevant HUD modes: one press for guns, a second for missiles, subsequent presses to attempt lock-on.

All the talk of slippy Hawks and 360kt breaks got me thinking of the 520kt break I did once in a Tornado, at the threshold and turning final in the correct place to boot. Max wingsweep, airbrakes,...

I'd be extremely surprised if collective restrictions were introduced as the result of a single occurrence. There's more likely to have been a few, and there's only so many alcohol-related incidents...

Thankfully, PFI is now largely discredited (http://archive.is/DqmzI) - and rightly so, as governments always could borrow far more cheaply than businesses. Unfortunately it was discredited slightly...

Continuing where BV and high spirits have so rightly begun, let’s do some rough analysis of the capability on show in the RAF100 flypast. Weapons technology is at a point where inertial and/or GPS...

Both IX and 31 are seeing Tornado out, appropriately as IX was the first front line Tornado unit. The Lossie outfit will presumably grow in number under a (Des) banner until taking the mantle...
