2. Arrive at work in either your TVR or Porsche boxster
3. Like above keep flying ovies on whether flying or not
4. Sit in Planning working out a route where you can fly over daddies estate and still put it down as "training" whilst you're at it plan a weekend jaunt to europe for Â£40k all at the taxpayers expense
5. When signing aircraft out make small talk to groundcrew in a demeaning and belittling voice
6. Fly for 90 minutes and radio in a major unserviceability
7. Sign in aircraft and snag everything your fingers have touched (if its friday mention over temping, not enough power, excessive vibration)
8. Hand in survival equipment
9. Sit in office doing "de brief" discussing new TVR you are thinking of adding to your ever expanding car empire! or about that hot blonde who works in the wardroom
10. Leave your recent payslip loafing knowing that the young AB who is duty keys (who earns Â£42 a day) will pick it up and read it and be pleasantly upset by your copious amounts of pay.
11. Drop roof on car turn on cd to TOP GEAR Anthems and smile/wave to ground crew as they walk out to aircraft to get it ready for ground run/jacking/engine change
Who are the ones that have got it wrong, "Hmmmm Slit Trench or Holiday Inn, let me get back to you on that one". Still these days even our fast jet chums are combat ready and know the difference between an SA 80 and an FB 5X. Rumour has it though they have developed a special waterproof duvet for them to use in the slit trenches, I mean you have to have some home comforts when you are working with the RAF. :lol:JunglyDaz said:
