Or you could Google them to see really good topsides in perfect sunlight......
I for one can appreciate the 'hurt' you are experiencing right now as I was laid-off some years back. This particular episode has been a nightmare in terms of sensitive handling & the release of news to the wrong parties at the wrong time! There have been some rather 'disappointing' comments on this & other Forums as enthusiasts absorb the shock of this announcement. The likely impact on all aspects of life in & around Mildenhall are fairly obvious to anyone with two adjacent brain cells, but this is an Aviation Forum & one must expect the majority of Posts to have a bias.
I don't think it serves any point long-term to berate those you chose to align with until yesterday? Many of these guys are currently out of work, tossed on the scrapheap of un-employed, or never got a chance to start in the first place. This "weird personal gratification
" is a relatively cheap way of filling a day, which will soon be lost to them!
Chin-up matey, you've got about 3 years to get relocated to a new job at the Heath.
Me, I got a new better job but
, Jeez am I glad my purchase of that house in Pollards Lane fell-through last week!
