Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have they budgeted for that? Maybe cancel a few RAF band concerts :)

    Stop it you pair, nibbling at the RAF to save a bob or two wont achieve anything, just bin the whole lot of them.

  5. You only have to read into the cost of running the Tristar replacement. One of Gordon browns classics. I believe £1.7 million a day, and they don't even own them!

  6. The MoD also have to pay the "company" that own them if they receive AAR from another source. Also if they are not being used by the crabs they can be used to take chavs to Ibiza. Great PFA contract from the one eyed loon!

  8. six.

    is that it?
     
  9. Their all over the UK in salvage yards. 2 at Cottesmore, one on the main gate at VL, a load on the dummy deck at CU. So it would be difficult but not as difficult as retrieving the bits of the GR's sold for spares!

  10. Are you talking about the Sea Harrier or the GR7/9s?
     
  11. Sea Harriers as alluded to in the post :) all the GR 9 & 9A were scrapped and shipped out to the states. The mighty Shar would only have been any use to Sea Harrier operators and it was a different beast to the GR. Not made out of plastic for a start :)

    I love it when these threads drift.
