    So sad :cry: looks like the fat lady is singing. Thinking of that famous Quote "I counted them all out, and I counted them all back"
    BBC correspondant Brian Hanrahan, carefully avoiding censorship whilst describing a Harrier sortie. :cry: No counting them back today!!!!! Brian, like you did on the Hermes in 82

    Just for the record, so that it maybe quoted at appropriate recurrent junctures for the next decade & beyond:

    "Pure Madness & complete folly by those who are anxious enough to blame their political predecessors, but blind enough to waste billions in aid to those who would never consider reciprocating loyalty in times of crisis"
     
  6. Last Jet off was a Cnuting Crab one (1(F) Squadron)!!!!

    "Unfortunately an old squadron of mine!!!!"
     
  7. closet crab!!!!!
     
  8. Luckily the chap in the cockpit was FAA. :lol:

    Of the four pilots on board, there was only one Crab.

  11. Got the right hump last night, had a few beers and a tot and e mailed the CON-servatives and told them where to stick thier vote!!!

    In hindsight, maybe a little bit hastey!!!
     
  12. On the bright side, when the Harriers get locked away somewhere, in a few hundred years when the Earth's population has been enslaved by dreadlocked, platform boot wearing aliens from a distant galaxy their downtrodden human slaves can use them to stage a rebellion and eventually overthrow the extra-terrestrial oppressors.
