Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by soleil, Mar 22, 2010.

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. BZ to her. She has obviously worked hard to get this role..
     
  2. :roll: Your line height and speed, is good Maam!! and your Perfume smells essence this morning :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  3. From the first link:

    Lt Becky Frater, 36, who serves at RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset, is the only female helicopter pilot in the maritime navy.

    Is this a new branch?
     
  4. The article is about a Wafu after all. Maritime navy is seagoing, not a phrase often used in the Woo world.

    Standing by for incoming
     
  5. Wait no more :roll: http://www.fleetairarmarchive.net/RollofHonour/Women.html
     
  6. And the seagoing bit :? :wink:
     
  7. bz to her.

    i bet she has a Cunning Stunt up her sleeve or down her trousers
     
  8. At last, I was wondering who would be the first with that :D :D :D

  10. BZ that lady.
    As an aside, that Express article is possibly the worst bit of journalism I have read in my entire life.
     
  11. I enjoyed this quote:

    "The Black Cats are the Royal Navy equivalent of the Red Arrows."

    Really?!

    Also, I would be interested to know who she served with in Iraq. Armilla patrol alongside in Dubai?
     
  12. Well, that was the point I was trying to make but not very clearly it seems.
     
  13. whatever - your just jealous you never thought of it first.
     
  14. More importantly, has anyone sent off for the Express' free gardening DVD yet and, if so, does it give tips on lawn care?

    Helicopter, schmelicopter :)
     

  15. She was in the AAC before transferring to the FAA.
     
  16. This quote is my favourite.

    'She said: “I’ve never really noticed any issue with what gender you are. The manoeuvres in the performances are already known to us through our training. The challenge lies in putting them to a different use.'
