  3. Wrecker, they share the same dispersal at Culdrose again these days.

    Loving the typos though "putting the aircraft into the hanger" and "the Sikorsky Sea King" Close but not quite.

    Just annoyed I never got to do a proper draft down to 771.


    It was like that when I found it chief
