  1. Hi Steve, I found the book quite an enjoyable read, plenty of photos, but like most books of this type it's writen from the aircrew prospective!
  2. Why did pwi's aways turn up at 5pm on a friday?
  3. Bloody things gave me tinitus!
  4. I remember them being housed in base hanger at St Mawgan at the time, but can't remember their fit state. In hindsight I really should have taken some photos!
  5. Known as big jugs on 1 Sqn.
  6. On 56 Sqn Phantoms, we had to start putting white tap over the MASS toggle switch after the Jag incident when live armed.
  7. Seem to remember that on the F4 J's they couldn't get the gun to harmonise to the hud, so it was rarely fitted. This was the mid 80's so might have been sorted out later on!
  8. Another foot note, the aden gun was 25mm, but never worked correctly and never entered service.
  9. To follow on from the sidewinder tail. To fit the nitrogen bottle to the lau, we used to have tow the jet on to a ramp, this tipped the jet to one side, Which lifted the out rigger off the ground. You could then pump the leg up to gain access the the nitrogen bottle!
  10. Airfix start kits are in Aldi now, spitfire mk1, hurrican, fw190, mustang, willys jeep and cutty sark.
  11. Aldi should have a selection of airfix kits from the 15 Dec at £4.99. Lidi has them in stock now.

  13. You're right Ian, the modelling world has come on leaps and bounds since the 70's, and you can spend a bloody fortune. At least I don't have to nick by mum's nail files anymore!
