    Sorry,it's the Scum...

    Glad Johnny's ok & the are no other cas.

  2. I wonder whether the cab is damaged repairable or has been destroyed? The article doesn't make it clear and the A source said: "Losing a Chinook is a worst-case scenario." comment is so vague that I suspect it means 'we've made this up' by the Sun.

    Edited to add for clarity I meant they'd made the comment up not the story!

    The Defence Internet is also quoting the Sun article on their blog.
  4. I always thought a Chopper is a penis, not a Helicopter!
  5. Christ! Are you saying some Crab demolished a sangar with his penis? I knew they were big dicks but......
  6. Reading the BFBS report,it seems the Chinook was recovered,so is very unlikely to be a write-off.

    An unscheduled visit to Fleetlands for repair is probable,though.In which case,a replacement will most probably be shipped out from Odiham.
