... and when 22 was working, it was RH as well, wasn't it? In the Tucano it was definately a nicer movement to "push" left, and that was its favourite way to roll.

I definately prefer close form on the right because you're looking over your lowered throttle arm, rather than looking over your right arm brought into the centre for the column. Although I'd prefer not to be arsing around in close if I can avoid it; a future Red I ain't!

haha yeah sorry, all four of us are flying even if 2 are just wannabes in their eyes. I understand it but its a little late to be talking checks!
Oh, optimum attitude! optimum for what?!

Never ever forget (because I don't!) we were all starting out from the same platform! As one tornado driver said to me when I was on EFT, "yours is harder, you have 3 levers for 1 engine, I only have 1 lever for each engine!!"

Most of the time the only things Tornado mates said to me when I was on EFT aren't repeatable here :rolleyes:

Ditto; and it's an omni bearing selector, and it's for setting cleared heights on when descending like the speed bug on the Tucano, as it doesn't appear to actually do anything.

Edit; it's not really for that, but that's about the only thing I can think of doing with it.

You've been languishing away from our favourite airbase for too long; or I've been taking too many holding jobs there!

How can squadrons with scarfs be losers??

All in the name of banter! I love going back there, top part of the world!!
But now you come to mention it, I do remember a rival squadron that isn't any more that wore scarves after a certain part of the course!! Deary me! I do hope that hasn't crossed into the amalgamated sqn...

Like I say mate, it's all just a laugh. And anyway, GR mates aren't allowed to like Air Defence mates! Believe me, if there were any on this forum, they'd be laying into me just as much!!
