Rating to Pilot

Waspie

War Hero
Oppo of mine (we joined up as a tiff apprentices and went through Control Engineering stream) went UY and on to fly Sea Kings.
Last I heard he was still flying out in Brunei at 60 plus.
Quite a few tiffs I knew did that. One, was my course pilot when I was on my Basic Flying Training course at Culdrose. Another went on to be a Zoomie, flying Harriers in 82. Even a fellow aircrewman went on to fly Harriers, now an airline pilot somewhere!!
 
I’m gonna go for it!!
Mmmm - Sad as it may be for me to be the one to have to disappoint you, @Alfacharlie, but 'RR War Hero' counts for very little...

Reasons are rarely disclosed (S-I-C etc.) but, to let you down gently dear boy, the Selector's preliminary trawl through your contributions at RR indicate that your Oily Cues* are far too Oily for the exacting standards demanded of those who come a'knocking at the Bunhouse Door.

*Oily Cues? You probably knew already but for those that don't: aka OLQs = Officer-Like Qualities.

I’ll stick to controlling then....
Well, roofing now.
 
^Yarning with the Babby Steward during a quite middle half way through one 'BN Patrol I casually asked him if he'd seen it?

"Yup - Fourteen Times" he said!

(...and none of his viewings were in the Bunhutch either as our Fillum nights were just once a week on a Sunday and we finally got to see it much much later. I'll swear to this day there a few frames spliced out here and there by previous pervs/viewers...)
