  9. Is that Gloucester/Arrow flight (XZ237) Scouse? Maybe on its way to being on 815HQ for a spell in '93? Looks like its going in to AMG, I'm guessing from the big transformers that were between 815/AMG and 700OEU. No FOD baskets on the intakes, and theres a tilly in the hangar. Duty PO must be in the crewroom watching Richard n Judy......:sleepy3:

    It reminds me of the old pussers H&S posters "How many hazards can you spot in this picture?"

    "Erm, trip hazard far left (truck), lightbulb in hangar roof needs changing. Oh, and a helicopter flying indoors (noise hazard)"
  11. Dont forget FOD...:eek:mg:

  13. In my mighty SHAR days we used to use a brush for rounds.

    I suppose 2 aircrew is cheaper that a whole watch of AEM's.

  14. I think its a great way of putting the aircraft to bed. As a POAEM(R) I used to hate being in charge of aircraft moving:frown:
  15. Ditto, it's the grubbers airframe surely it's their responsibility? I never asked them to change a scanner/radio/uckers board?

  16. First post, Hi all.

    I'm putting money on this being the 'Timmy hangar' down that south, Mount Pleasant. No names, but I have a clear recollection of our Pilot deciding to do the same thing back in 89' and my next trip down there in 95' resulted in a similar challenge.

    It really upset the crabs (it blew their carefully placed FOD all over the place), which can only be a good thing all round.....
  17. " ...carefully placed FOD..."

    I like you already. Welcome to RumRation.
  18. Cheers matey
  19. What happens when the foam goes off.
