I wonder which of the three Chinnok squadrons will be awarded the title " The Damsavers "
Derwent.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.
So did I.I used to live near there
let the place drown and destroy Chapel-en-le-Frith while you are at it
You do realise that nobody in Whaley has traveled as far as Buxton in 45 years? I went to school with kids who had traveled further away than their parents simply by getting on the school bus. The concept of taking advice from 'foreigners' from distant lands such as Chinley and Macclesfield is an alien idea.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)

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).
