I wonder which of the three Chinnok squadrons will be awarded the title " The Damsavers "
What was the dam 617 Sgn used for practice before the Dams raid in 1943? I visited it on a school trip, but the name.
I think we should stop being 'funny'. A lot of these crews will have done tours in Iraq or Afgahnistan and done MERT or flown into hot LZs. Dropping bags of ballast from a helicopter hovering at low level is as accurate and lowering it in with a crane. Gravity does the work - as long as the pilots and loadies get the aircraft properly positioned. Bread and butter stuff for SH crews.
I used to live near there
let the place drown and destroy Chapel-en-le-Frith while you are at it
So did I.
I have started a new charity.
WELLY BOOTS 4 WHALEY BRIDGE
HIGH PEAK (Well the bits that are still high after the mass flooding)
DERBYSHIRE (NOT CHUFFING CHESHIRE, THE WOOLY BACK CHAV'S)
SK17 & SOMETHING or Via DERBY DE5 & SOMETHING ELSE
CASH DONATIONATION'S ACCEPTED;
Send to my bank account and I will pass it on.
If the Resi goes then it will make the mass flooding of Buxton in 1974 (ish) a poor second. (That also involved a Resi, heavy rain and a blocked outlet/overflow. (You think they would have learn't by now, it's only 45 years ago).
