And after how many years? And the Roger Nigel has parred to the bone, and then some. And lets not forget LEAN. I was even at a brief when they've admitted that LEAN, IS a cost cutting exercise. Incidentely, do people know that the Elmer J's are going away from lean, as its making them fat and lazy.
But thats getting away from the point. There's loads of building going on at VL, so it looks like, with current form (Osprey), they'll be shutting it. Surf Sand and Fog, here we all come then.
Mind you, I've never really been that keen on Counties without Motorways in them. Cornwall is one, and I think Norfolk is the other one. Mmmmm?

Iwould love to know which air force you have the advantageous position in because it is obviously not the Royal one, as the latest and third tranche of redundancies is the first that they have asked for SAC's/JTs in, and then only around 500. And they are introducing the AMM not the OM!!!!!!crabtastic said:If only the crabs' loss in manpower was going to have any effect, they've had it too good for too long and the personnel "losses" are what they've had coming to them. From what I've seen they have far too many people doing nothing - I have little sympathy. The crabs look after their people better but that means they drip like hell when they suffer any form of hardship. From my advantageous spying position as a solitary matelot deep in crab land most of the redundancies are SACs (ABs in real speak)...and I heard a nasty rumour that the RAF are now looking to introduce the OM...
