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. Anybody see this today? Link

    It was cancelled yesterday and I forgot about today, but is getting a re-run just now on Nat Geo +1 (Sky 527).

    It's mental.
     
  2. Can't be much news other than the banking fiasco.

    Jet man has been about for ages. Watched it on You Tube over a year ago.

    Doesn't detract from the fact the mans a 100% nutter though!!!
     
  3. Aye, but he crossed the Channel today.
     
  4. Like I said - Nutter!!! :thumright:
     
  5. Why is he a nutter?

    A new achievement, good on to the bloke.
     
  6. Don't think he meant nutter in a bad way.

    More like that it would only be a person with a lot of bottle (crazy) that tried to do something like that.
     
  7. Ditto.

    Where would we be if it was not for the nutters of the world.

    Rail travel! Air travel! The Duke of Wellington was against rail travel he stated. It will encourage the masses to wander!! Prat!

    Rocket power or solar power could be the way forward. No more Ryan Air flights! Praise be!

    Please let my shute open!!!!
     
  9. Perhaps he's a cheaper version for the JSF. :thumright:
     
  10. Reminds me of "The fall guy" Lee Majors :thumright:
     
  11. You need to change your brand of tea!!!!

    As said, not meant in a bad way. More - extreme eccentric.

    You jump out of a serviceable aircraft with not just 1 but 4 mini GT's on his back. No form of steering apart from shifting his mass. Not a normal every day thing to do don't you agree.

    Barking!!!
     
  12. Where the fuq would you sit on that Waspie?
    Is there room for any AS12s, or would you just resort to the Jocky Wilson titanium darts to save weight while sitting on your deckchair?
     
  13. Here is a link to the original vid I saw last year.

    Low flying through the Alps.

    Once the £140,000 price-tag comes down, it's be a great matelot's get-you-home vehicle to get past the 160 mile caravan queue between Pompey & Guzz.
     
  15. I thought it was a brilliant piece of engineering! Anyone know what type of engines he used?
     
  16. You know, you joke and stuff, but im sure this type of thing has military applications. The small radar sig etc. In fact im pretty sure that the military is eying this on up right now!

    Imagine Paras getting these puppys! :D
     
  17. The real problem with this chap is that he is French! If an Englishman had done what he did, he would be a plucky hero; as it is he is just another weird Frog. C'est la vie!!
     
  18. Change my brand of tea? Eh?
     
  19. Thought he was Swiss.
     
  20. He is a chocolate eating, clock maker, who flies dabbles in abit of airbus flying for Swissair.
