Get a Stop-Watch. When it gets to 130 Hours, it should be a little quieter.
That is until the next box of Nozzers show up.
Force undertake a minimum of 62 hours Elementary Flying Training (EFT) during their first year, before being streamed for fast jet, rotary wing or multi-engine pilot training. Flying hours will then depend on which aircraft type their training has undertaken. For example, fast jet trainees normally undertake 130 hours Basic Fast Jet Training, 70 hours Advanced Flying Training and 52 hours Tactical Weapons Training following completion of EFT, over a further two-year period. All students undertake relevant ground school training prior to each flying phase.
p.s. They do stop flying during filming of episodes of *Heartbeat* though,
as they didn't have Tornados and Eurofighters back then.
As the missiles hurtled towards British Naval
Bases at the start of World War III, Fylingdales
would have given us all that "four minute warning".
And the RN's response?
"Five minutes to colours - ratings detailed, close up.."
I was watching 'Stephen Fry's America' the other night and he found a septic hippie type who had converted a former US Air Force Missile Silo complex into a very comfortable underground house sans Nukes of course.
Cost to US taxpayer to build $40 million bucks cost to hippie to buy from Uncle Sam $120,000! He now works as a Consultant to others wishing to buy similar sites.
The actual command centre had been perfectly recreated and the tunnels between there and the silos, work bays and living spaces were so wide and long they had been used by the family to teach the kids to ride bikes!
