oooerrr...
there is a passage in 'The Lightning Boys' a book of anecdotes, operations and adventures about the operations of the lightning squadrons of the day, it 'details how a lone american preceded by a single phone call showed up one night, 'borrowed' a plane, returned it 45 mins later less the missiles never to be seen again.
is the anecdote the other side of the BBC story that someone has inadvertently let out of the bag or an ancient aviation 'urban myth'? :o

Sally and I did more training yesterday, well that should read Sally did more training with me yesterday.

All in all a good dive was had with the exception of me diving a smoot too light leaving me with some buoyancy control issues at 6m at the end of the dive.

Looking forward to a good season ahead of us this year.....thinking about getting shot of the stab jacket and going with a backplate and wing, the stab jacket feels really bulky as all :roll:

Best get some diving experience in then and we'll go for a dip on it.
