Fleet Air Arm pilot in exchange with RAF Typhoon Squadron

Handler

War Hero
Power to his elbow, have known quite a few exchange pilots, most flamboyant was a Lieutenant Don Hanna of the USMC who was a pilot on 892 squad. He would stand on the roundown firing his sidearm at the splash target. Also used to give us film shows in the briefing room of the combat footage he had from the US Navy pacific archives.

A wise move on his part, best not to place all your eggs in the F35B basket.

You reckon he made conscious decision to fly Typhoons?

Surely it was more of a case of "right shippers, you're going to be crab for the next 3 years, no use complaining, someone has to take the hit for the team. Remember to take some pound coins for the fruit machines in the mess."

I bet every typhoon QFI was praying for him to f*ck up during training.

He's flying a 21 st Century fast jet. Unmesuarable value in a Service with no FJ capability. It's not new: some fighter aces in the Battle of Britain were from the FAA.

The FAA needs every oportunity to keep fast jet skills alive. Support it!
 
Shuts the "Save the Royal Navy" crap about having no joint exchange

It's been going on for years (aircrew wise), only more recently for the workers!

We had many crab pilots on 899/801/800 (spit) and the large majority of them transferred to dark blue during their time in wonderland! :)

I just hope he loses the crab ways before he returns to the fold!

Jesus, you won't let this rest will you? Just to keep you in the loop. A shitload more people just got assignment orders for the USA* and billets and compliments have been drawn up at Marham.
