For FAC/JTAC/TACP stuff . OPSEC allowing
Fcuks sake tally, a forum just for three of us? I've told my German Tornado story all the rest are boring, oh except for the the one who called Mayday engine out as I was about to clear him, we all shit it and started to flap and he came back on successful re-light did the drop and RTB'd straight after. He was British naturally. :wink:

I know for a Fact there around a dozen FACs lurking and a few Stealth usernames. Just watch your dits as as you know it's a bloody small world. Any Tain dits ?

Not really, but have got a few Loch Ewe ones.

Drumacholk hotel with the whiskey per chance?
Oh yes, and the gunner girl in the HVM Stormer, but that's more of a NAAFI Bar story. :wink:

"Slizzling" hot in that HVM I take it? Good drills. All for crimes against the RA.
The 346 AE had an alternate use that day. :wink:

Falls go for it bud. Lets see how long it goes before you get mongs on it. At least with our job nobody knows much about it. A para one will get all types of pretenders on it. I guess you could police it like a Nazi.

I've always wondered what it is that makes FACs so cool - even the pensioners at 21 Sigs FAC Tp :D
It doesn't make us cool, we are cool. :wink:

Just the tip of the Iceberg me thinks.How about some dodgy control dits?
Maybe not quite dodgy controls but on my course I missed out on back seating as I'm so huge. (In every respect :wink: ) My femurs exceeded the ejection seat parameters by 2cm. :( So I was grounded and the Number of sorties flown (as passenger) box had a big fat zero in it. :(

However, I got an extra days worth of controls and as a very poor substitute was forced to sit in the back of the course Gazelle and do a few airborne controls from there.

The only bonus being the cab driver was a charming, if not slightly boyish, young lady captain. :D

Ironically when the Squadron clerk updated my quals after course completion I was awarded the specialist qualification: SQ/MQ HQ JASO/Airborne Forwarder Air Controller? :D

The job and is cool and the cool ethos is up held as much as possible. Unfortunately with up these young bucks passing the course, the coolness is warming a little. Good job the old "Delta 2, North 55..." guard are upholding the ethos

As an ABFAC I couldn't believe the Sqn gave us a Gazelle for 2 weeks to finish the course. Only downside was the OC trying to convince us he was still a current and competant Gazelle Pilot!!
