Re: ITV series - Fighter Pilot, the real Top Gun

Re: Insurance

Re: Has anyone else heard this story and is it true or even possible?

I heard the tale back in the '70s from someone who had been in RAF. and that it was first done in the very early days of the Canberra (possibly may even have helped the US decide to buy some).

The Harrier T8 that Art Nalls now has in the States, ZD993 had nothing to do with Everett Aero. It was purchased from MoD/QinetiQ and moved from Boscombe Down in mid-January this year.
