Seems another tragedy has befallen our SAR colleagues.

R116 has gone in and taken all four of its crew.

Russian aircraft violate our airspace now. A disrespectful try-on. What next?

The Navy Wings Sea Vixen had a poor start to the season when it had to make a wheels up landing on its return to Yeovilton yesterday. Great job by the pilot though-

I am not a pilot but initially, instinctively thought a touch down on the grass might have done less damage, but I guess is more risky because of a possibility of digging in. The pilot showed great skill here though.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it
