Sour Grapes - flynavy? - 'All of one company' remember. Please don't get sucked in by the RAF propaganda machine - 800 and 801 Naval Air Squadrons exist for the common RN good. Anyway, it was a bloody good video that raised the visibility of the RN Sea Harrier (and JFH) and has been extremely well received by those of us at VL who miss y'all.flynavy said:the mighty 801 - are you having a laugh they are a small donor unit leeching off 800 because they dont know if they will stand up or not!
great video really makes you wonder why we have OPSEC and PERSEC but hey, if thats how you want to advertise fair enough
take a look at the mighty 800 squadron website and whilst their wonder why 801 does'nt have a website!!
I think somebody needs a lesson on Jointery! Hardly suprising that the GRs were not used in the air defence role in the Falklands, since that's what the Sea Harrier was designed for. 801 Sqn will stand up when/ if fully manned but the fact that the RN can't provide the people hardly makes it an RAF conspiracy. Joint Force Harrier is working well, with large amounts of inter-Service rivalry and a few niggles here and there. But I'm sure that 800 Sqn will prove themselves on the GRs in Afg but the Harrier is no longer there to defend the fleet.DingDong said:We need to teach the CRABS a valuable lesson in loyalty, after they deliberately sold the SHAR down the river in order to save their beloved crab sqns.
More to the point we need to remind them every time that whilst they only managed to bomb various patches of turf in the Falklands with their vulcans, it was the RN that protected the fleet and fucked the argies up.
**** THE CRABS AND EVERYTHING THEY STAND FOR
Nevermind ship-mate, we won't hold it against you, and hey, with enough beer and maybe some dedication, you can beat this terrible affliction and come into the light, and perhaps even work with a professional organisation.RAF_Eng said:[Oh yes and I am a crab and proud of it! :lol:

Perhaps your own Forums aren't that interesting then? Or is is perhaps that deep, deep down you always wanted to be a sailor, but were worried about the facilities?RAF_Eng said:I love it - winding Matelots up on their own forum! About time this forum saw some action!
