I wonder if the feasibility of digging up 07/25 and replacing with 09/27 was looked at. As a long term plan with Heathrow expansion surely this would have been a better strategic move. You could also...

That surprised me as I thought it would have been crab and kick of the drift maintaining wings level.

Sentry is wings level. Any more than 5 degrees bank and youíll scrape a pod.

It may have not been intended that way, but asking for military legal advice on a public forum about being confined on Aki is a bit embarrassing.

Duly paid my £204 straight away this morning. Wouldn't want my CO to find out I was last paying my dues. Oh well, I guess it all goes into the big RAF Club pot. A worthy charity.
