F6F-3 Hellcat showing its ruggedness. This Hellcat flown by Butch O'Hare with over 200 bullet holes from combat was patched up and brought to the production plant to show the workers what they are building. Butch was awarded the medal of Honor 02/20/42 for shooting down five bombers attacking his carrier, he was shot down by a Japanese "Betty" bomber on 11/26/43 during the first night raid ever conducted by the US Navy from an aircraft carrier.
Chicago's International Airport is names in O'Hare's memory .

If they catch the little bastards who did this. FFS, it's the Air Ambulance. Then they need a bloody good hiding.
I would certainly hope something more serious than a hiding. Deliberately pointing such things at aircraft of any kind is tantamount to attempted murder..if there isn't legislation in place to treat it as such and with commeasurate penalties there should be.

SEPECAT Jaguar

The SEPECAT Jaguar is an Anglo-French jet attack aircraft originally used by the British Royal Air Force and the French Air Force in the close air support and nuclear strike role. It is still in service with the Indian Air Force.

Originally conceived in the 1960s as a jet trainer with a light ground attack capability, the requirement for the aircraft soon changed to include supersonic performance, reconnaissance and tactical nuclear strike roles. A carrier-based variant was also planned for French Navy service, but this was cancelled in favour of the cheaper Dassault Super Étendard. The aircraft were manufactured by SEPECAT (Société Européenne de Production de l'avion Ecole de Combat et d'Appui Tactique), a joint venture between Breguet and the British Aircraft Corporation, one of the first major joint Anglo-French military aircraft programmes.

The Jaguar was exported to India, Oman, Ecuador and Nigeria. The aircraft was used in numerous conflicts and military operations in Mauritania, Chad, Iraq, Bosnia, and Pakistan, as well as providing a ready nuclear delivery platform for the United Kingdom, France, and India throughout the latter half of the Cold War and beyond. In the Gulf War, the Jaguar was praised for its reliability and was a valuable coalition resource. The aircraft served with the French Air Force as the main strike/attack aircraft until 1 July 2005, and with the Royal Air Force until the end of April 2007. It was replaced by the Panavia Tornado and the Eurofighter Typhoon in the RAF and the Dassault Rafale in the French Air Force.

Am I right in thinking there was a lot of TSR2 DNA in the Jag?

Well it had wings and engines, if that's what you mean? Apart from that...

He doesn't look too Butch there.

But on a rare serious note, hi father was Al Capone's accountant.
