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:

    :idea: Go on, Pontius,

    Why not just divert slightly (for ahem "weather" reasons) and give your poor passengers and crew a little treat for a change, eh?. :wink:

  4. Certainly hope that it will de a great day for all, the Grippen is a great piece of kit, F-16 still manages an awsome performance, and of course the great Vulcan displaying its 'growl'.
  5. I like the Gripen too - I nearly fell over backwards like one of those penguins mesmerised by aircraft when I was watching it at Farnborough a few years ago.

  15. Wow! I didn't know a Swordfish could fly that slowly.
  16. For the record. "I don't do jumping".

    You have to be insane to jump from perfectly serviceable aircraft.

    (Stand fast SAR Divers) They were certified years ago!!!!!!!!
  17. Wasn't the Sea Vixen manufactured in Christchurch? There is a De Haviland Road in the town and at the end of it there is a Sea Vixen on a plinth!
  18. Sea Vixen goes back a bit, it came after the Sea Venom. Yeovil sea vixen 2.jpg
