New Generation a/c

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. Wow, my first view of the new a/c this morning.
    About 100 ft. above me, on its way to our local range in SW Wales.
    If I was a terrorist it would scare the living daylights out of me.
  2. Well that's me confused o_O
  3. You are not alone. But that`s nothing unusual for me nowadays:(

  7. Saw it again this morning. Don't know where it came from, but it was a P2 Lightning. Either American/RAF/RN or manufacturers.
    You read it first here. If it comes over tomorrow I'll video it.

  11. WAFU pillow talk.
  12. I'm still confused o_O
  13. I thought WAFU pillow talk was, how many M&M can I have chief?

    That all depends on how many days you are working this week, one per day and Fridays do not count as that’s an half day anyway
  14. Having a M & M whist sat a VL on sea pay "Front Line" was always a bonus ;)

  16. I can remember the P.O. WAFU who shared a 6 berth cabin in Invincible in his pit in the a'noon because of Night flying so we watch keepers kept the noise down,I changed for early supper as I had the First and he was sound asleep , came off the first, he woke jammed a bar of in flight nutty in his head,muttered something about night flying cancelled, I meanwhile next morning turned to and got, changed early for lunch he was still fast asleep but woke up as I changed after completing the a'noon watch.the cheeky bastard gave me a bollocking for not shaking him for lunch.Too Quote Mr Meldrew I did not believe it.
  17. Now that is one Wafu who was completely in charge of his life.

  19. Yes.
    ATM it is the new generation a/c for the FAA (among others) and I initially heard it called the P2 Lightning.
    Does that make my first post on this website plain to you?
    BTW I only spend a few minutes a day on message boards. That's why you've been waiting for the reply.
    Apparently the 2 I saw yesterday morning were the A variant.
