Yes, you would hope that Gavin might realise that a deployment of Queen Elizabeth here might be more impactful ( and cheaper!) that a trip to try put the frighteners on the Chinese!

Airbubba,
I had already read the interview you refer to, which is what made me think O'Malley would be inherently less likely to be hasty or indeed unforgiving. Given his own experience, I suspect...

Joining the dots together, something binary like DUI sounds the most plausible. Timeframe too compressed otherwise, as 99% of other reasons to remove a commander would take a little time to...

It speaks volume for the quality of their accounting systems and processes. How come nobody noticed the £300k was missing from the safe?? Major Wilson is as culpable as WO2 Hodgkinson in my view.

DV's recent post caused me to revisit the incident report, and I was struck by the fact that the report was silent on the point made by 57mm above.

Airpolice,

SASless,
You have hit the nail on the head.

Air police,
whatever it was, it wasn’t a “peek”; they flew, from memory, orbits of three separate motorway roundabouts. While below MLA fuel. Even overlooking the fact the fuel was in the wrong...
