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:

  1. One missing after US Navy plane crashes into sea

    Remember this ludicrously ill-informed headline in The Times some time ago? Lovely new aircraft carrier, sir, but we’re fighting in the desert

    Ike's 90-odd aircraft have been supporting ground forces in Afghanistan since she relieved Nimitz in January (link) and this is her first reported casualty of the tour. Here's hoping they find the fourth crew member alive and well.
     
  2. I'd never seen the "What a lovely new Aircraft Carrier" story before.

    What a terrible piece of ill-informed and un-substantiated speculation and conjecture it is. I used to buy The Times every now and again. USED to. :x

    Edited to add:

    May the crew of the Hawkeye be found safe and sound. Always a terrible time when one of your aircraft doesn't come home, whatever the reason.
     
  3. The article was written by Simon Jenkins, another Lewis Page adherent. Nuff said. :roll:
