Yes, as training a pilot is a significant investment, if a pilot's eyesight degrades after training they may be allowed to remain operational and wear glasses.chockhead819 said:
Yep - you're right Chockhead 819 - I know several Sea Harrier pilots who wore them when airborne and one in particular who it took me ages to realise that, when he disappeared below the cockpit sill after landing in Invincible, he was removing his spectacles in case Wings in Flyco saw him. As it happened, he was perfectly legal!Lingyai said:
Ah, those lovely Wrens of years gone by - the new RN girls can't hold a candle to 'em!Mick_Strigg said:I don't know about pilot entry, but when I was on the Divisional Officers course many, many moons ago, we had a lecture about the Wrens from a grumpy old First Officer WRNS. The thing I clearly remember was when she proudly stated:
"There are three methods of Wren Officer entry!"
The assembled (male) audience couldn't stop laughing for a fortnight!
