Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not allowed to post in current affairs, so can't join in the comet thread. Presumably because I'm on ROP's and I'd only crayon in there too.

    About this comet then. Bright as a full moon apparently, should be fucking stunning. A bit like that one on the Bayeux tapperstry, making people duck as it whistles by. It's due in November. There's going to be one visible in the northern hemisphere March tenth, so be looking up :)
  2. What a bird, they should have made them into something.

  3. CF-CUN turned into a bridge
    F-BGSC turned into a culvert
    LV-AHP turned into a hill
    LV-AHR turned into a forest
    SA-R-7 turned into a mountain
    SU-ALE turned into a fence

    So it seems that they were turned into lots of things.

    Do you mean Ison?

    It wont whistle by, it will be in the sky for many days if not weeks, its not a meteor. It cannot be brighter than the moon unless it is closer than the moon (which it wont be) or is bigger than the moon ( which it isnt) but nonetheless, it might be a great sight as per Kahoutek some years ago.
  5. They have, anything from Coke cans to Dog food cans by now!

    Bugger beaten to it!

    Yeah, but apart from a bit of metal fatigue they are beautiful.

  7. They were rushed out without sufficient testing to try and beat the yanks to have a commercial jet, it didn't work.
  8. What can we see through the square window.

    yeah - who were we to think that we could get away with passengers in comfort. should have stuck them in sheepskin and oxygen masks.
  14. My dad used to fix them. Well, the ones that hadn't turned into bridges, hills, culverts, forests, mountains and fences. He used a technical term for them: "fucked".

    What is it with Comets all of a sudden? First one passes inside the orbit of the geostationary satellites, then someone posts a question on both the RAC and the Military History forums (though they did turn out to mistakenly refer to Cromwells). Now a third different subject matter concerning Comets.

    What will it be next week? Centurions?
