The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
BBC News - Libya Typhoon pilots sent home after 'night out'
I wonder what they did?
Probably borrowed the bosses Brylcreem without permission.
Discovered slumming it in a Four Star Hotel?
"Per Ardua ad Dolce Vita". Still, at least no WAGs were involved.
Mind you, the remaining c.900 RAF personnel currently accommodated in hotels in and around Gioia del Colle in Italy will be back in the UK for a 16 month 'break' soon enough although they have only been out there since mid-March:
RAF Harmony Guidelines mandate: "a maximum of 4 months on operations in a 20-month period with separated service no more than 280 days over a rolling 24-month period." I.E. an average of 140 days separated service per year.
This compares with the RN's (including FAA) and RM's much more demanding: "60 per cent deployed and 40 per cent at base in a 3-year cycle with no more than 660 days away from home over a rolling 3-year period". I.E. an average of 220 days separated service per year.
See footnote 3 on page 7 of the 2010 Armed Forces Pay Review Body Report.
Discovered a sense of humour - Nah, crabs - humour, nope, maybe not.
Bet they demand a pretty gong for their valiant service!
ARRSE: Libya Medal and Medals for The Libya
Didnt take long did it. Fuckin crabs same as in the Falklands....... ******* put in for more than Jack and the bootnecks did......
Pissed up on a couple of pints...*******.
They probably forgot to march sideways while on parade...Though, being pissed should help, shouldn't it? :laughing5:
Rumour has it they have been sent home for "gross competence, which is not inkeeping with the standards of the service"
Flying out of hours or even, God forbid, at night?
Separate names with a comma.
