Surprisingly, my arrival was not as heralded.

Just read and seen this thread, the pic certainly brought memories back of being out on the runway end in crash and rescue 6.

Jeez, Waspie, do you not know nuffin'. Those wings aren't broken, they're bent up at the ends for carrier ops so they can land them on the boat's narrow runway and so they can fit them down the lift. Gen that is; at least that's what the bloke down the pub told me.

Oooh, you are naughty.

(Before the Crabs and the media jump all over this, 750 is the number of the Naval Air Squadron, not the number of personnel.)
