Ever wondered why all AAC aircraft are U/S

I remember seeing a flight safety summary. Something to do with having to land at RAF Woodvale, Merseyside. Crew returned to the a/c to find a smashed door window and plexiglass in the cockpit. The subseqent loose article check found half a brick and wiring ripped from the underside of the instrument panel, in an apparent attempt to hotwire the a/c.

PTR377 = ARI 18220 = proprietary kit, so not necessarily MoD sourced.

Can't speak for AAC, but RN and RAF replaced this under Air Staff Requirement 889 in mid 80s. (Intro of AD120 / PTR1751 variants). Was 377 ever converted to 25kHz channel spacing?

RAF Woodvale, well I never. I grew up about a 1/4 mile from that location, and no, it wasn't me who stole the kit. The AAC did fly in once from Middle Wallop to take us for a spin in a Gazelle, rather nice of them. Strong memory, whipping down the coast line with the AAC.

I lived South from the airfield, quite close to St. George's, 1/4 mile as crow flies (or gazelle ;) ), born '69. You?

Doesn't look like any Lynx VHF CU that I can recall. So it's either from a boaty-Lynx, or some kind of glitzy SF kit. Have a peek at his ebay shop; it looks like an SF-walt G10 store.
