I love the cameraman gobbing off about his mucka papping it on the first explosion, then papping it himself on the second explosion.

For a moment their I thought you were talking about a near miss involving the Chief of Air Staff, alas my hopes were dashed.

Civie question: what is "CAS" please?

Thats a scary video. I would have crapped it as well. The soldier at the back when they are walking away looks seriously shaken up.

So whats going on here, the A10 fired too close to friendly forces?

Close Air Support; dropping munitions in very close proximity to your own troops.

Change of combats needed on return to FOB.

Did you look at the Apache against four insurgents video on the same link on New years day..............targets will fall when hit.

Because he was a genuinely nice bloke.
Ah, thanks for that, it's much appreciated.

We're having a memorial service today at the site of a WW2 Wellington bomber crash on 2nd January 1944:

There is a memorial stone and a seat at the site and it's just something we do every year near the anniversary of the crash. A few words are spoken about the men, along with a hymn and prayers by the local parish priest.
Six young Canadian airmen lost their lives that night and we like to remember their loss. I'll be sharing some of the time with thoughts for the lads like Tony (Nicey) Rawston who have made similar sacrifices more recently.
And I'll also raise a glass to them all in the pub afterwards.

We will remember them.

Best wishes to you all and stay safe out there.
