Cheers, Biggles

#1
Went for a very pleasant walk in the hills today. Pleasant that is until Biggles flies over at about fifty feet. Knocked me onto my arrse and scared the living crap out of me. Didn't hear him approach couldn't hear anything for about five minutes afterwards.

Typhoon - I'm impressed, very, but do it again ZJ926 and I'll chuck a Mars bar into one of your intakes.

Loss of situation awareness. Keep yer eyes peeled and save yourself a Mars bar.

Sandy why waste a good Mars bar, just take a basket of pigeons with you.Nothing fcuks a jet engine like a good bird strike.

There's a miinimum flight ceiling they're supposed to above at so if you think he was too low complain to his boss. Possibly it'll get a crab into trouble, which has no down side. Perhaps you could suggest to his boss that he atones by putting the living crap back into your body?

Wittering, BTW!

When my parents retired to the West Country, having lived 12 miles finals for LHR, I spent hours and hours exploring Approach Charts, Low Flying Charts and everything I could find to ensure there new home was "noise free".

Sadly, the RN helo route up the river to Yeovilton wasn't published. :roll:
Still, they were little pottering cabs, not real ac, so it didn't cause them much trouble :D

Wasn't there a farmer in North Wales a few years ago who painted, ' Fcuk off Biggles' on the roof of his barn.

Subsequently 'bombed' on a very regular basis from then on, I believe.

:D

I thought they made a pretty tidy sum from all the sheep who 'die' from the shock of low-flying aircraft and live-firing exercises or is that a myth?

Are you sure it was one of ours? Some of these pesky foreigners already 'ring' cars and aircraft are the next logical extension.
