Re: Peter Teichman's thoughts

http://johnniehoulton.corranashworth.info/ suggests that the "first kill" was decided by HQ, so this might pin that down: https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C508484 This is the actual combat report. It seems surprising though that there were no claims until the third sortie of the ...

Were they there due to lack of demand? If so, why are they now leaving and why would they "never" return?

In fact, I have never noticed the ID before but the lack of transparency would affect everybody, not just me. As for the cancellation, the word "we" appears in his/her earlier post!

Re: Sea King flies

If you speak with authority, please state what that authority is. "We" is insufficient if the reader does not know who "we" are. The staff have already made this point to everyone. I really don't know why they won't enforce it.

Re: Bruntingthorpe Closure?

They are very clear that the Museum is currently closed with no info on re-opening. If the new owners already have a base there, perhaps they will understand (even enjoy) what goes on with the fast taxi days.

"TB" is more likely in lieu of "T8" which is its model. Harriers aren't T-Birds anyway.

Re: East Kirkby Airshow

But why were they side by side only for that very last bit? I couldn't understand why they went up and down the strip in line astern with so much separation, you could not get them in the same shot, even if you did avoid the parked aircraft.
