Hi Bob and other posters

Something seems to be wrong with the thread.

The Alert system notified me of the following, although I can't see any connection. Anyone else having such glitches? The post concerned appears to be #579

Best wishes

I mentioned it in random thread of bollocks a few days ago. It appears to be a bit random?
 
^Aye, seems curious but readily explained. As soon as I Posted I realised that I had witten your c/s instead of @skyvet's so I went straight into the edit mode and made the correction.

Apologies for any confusion (yet another Senior Moment during which drink had, as usual, been taken , , , )

does that one flap its wings like a bird?
Knew a guy Called Alex Pacey, before he went careers was an instructor. On a Gannet used for training Tiffs, allegedly, swapped the hydraulics couplings on the folding mechanism with the wings half folded. When the trainees tried to extend them one extend the other retracted and vicki vercki. Was a great dit he spun but could be bollock of course.

Probably not. This was the type of fault instructors would put on to test trainees skills
