Blaming no GPS on the F5. Correct me if I'm wrong,but I didn't think our Hawk T1's don't have it either?

Happens to the best of them, at least there was something going on to fly over. Unlike the B52 at Blackbush

These days it seems that we can't do without GPS.

The Reds hawks do have some form of GPS, its an addition that sits where a HUD would sit.

B.52 Blackbushe incident was a mistake in speed reduction requirements by Farnborough ATC, not the B.52 crew. They were unable to conform to ATC's speed reduction demands.
