Absolutely agree. But we have none. And won't have any.

If we ever trial them, perhaps it would be possible to get the version without the death metal soundtrack.

I loved them since they used to bounce around scarborough and my school while playing with the staxton wold radar, I doubt they would allow it nowadays.
I allways thought we could have done with a handfull. especially in 82 but not sure how we could have got them there.
if the the airframes are knackered then why not stick them on the water like a modern eboat type of thing, sail them around the gulf to scare the crap out of the iranian navywhat the world needs is an enema, make that two - just to give it a sense of purpose.
US electoral democracy is just a structured system of legalised bribery.
a senior Chinese officer has said, “all the great nations in the world own aircraft carriers – they are symbols of a great nation”. That’s why China has just commissioned its first. By the same token, to opt for a “carrier gap” of some years is to abandon your responsibilities.

I was so annoyed about being brassed up near Kandahar that I went to interview the pilot. Nice bloke as it goes. He was very young and imagined opening a kayaking school for floods of tourists in the mountains north of Kabul / Charikar after the war woz won.
He spent most of his flying hours doing Warthog air displays over Kabul whenever Khazi's personal air chariot set off to bring the Great Helmsman to international conferences.
He's probably been replaced by a drone now.
