What a great start to the year! I see we're still trying to get rid of the mince pies then! See you Thursday (and your other half, Garf ;) ) on Thursday!

Great work lads. Great work.

You can't have too many mince pies, that's my view.

Looking forward to tomorrow's 'Tuesday Club' log :P

Lovely job Kevin & Garf, did Typhoon 50 slip in an early 5,000 foot practice (ahead of NOTAM) - or did he do it perhaps over Holbeach.

If he has done first one, this would line up with Jimbo's Wednesday expectations.

Looks as if seeker33 and milky_01 are pushing for the mirage41 log.

I'll have to concentrate on this, in the near future, but would advise that at present the pencil is still in transit from Manchester.

Gents,

Just a query about yesterdays aborted QRA launch - did they actually go to the 07 end as I was under the impression (and have seen it several times myself when at Coningsby) that QRA sorties always depart 25, even if the airfield was on 07. Recoveries then being on whatever end the airfield is operating. Was there a particularly strong wind yesterday that may have required a 07 launch?

It was the 25 end they sat at.

Cheers

Sir,

What exactly does your original post (or this one) have to do with Milky's original post??

His information was posted for reference, whether anyone approves of his post or not is totally inconsequential.

In addition, whether you post here or not anymore is irrelevant

I think I speak for a great many when I kindly ask you to take your pointed comments and take them somewhere else... perhaps to the "I hate Milky" facebook page, fan club, or beer joint or your chosing

Now

Back to Typhoons

Rules on dealing with Trolls:-

1 Ignore any and all posts by Troll

2 Do not feed Troll ( see rule 1)

3 If unsure refer back to rule 1
Never give up control. Live life on your own terms.
