    As ever, a faultless piece of reporting from the Dalai Mail. :roll:

    RAF Apache?

    There's a new one :roll:
  4. Awesome, they also had a picture yesterday of a Ferrari Gallardo.....
  5. Give him an ASBO for his disgraceful behaviour.
    Oh hang on he was just shinning a torch at a low flying aircraft.
    A new way for those infidels to bring down apache's!
  6. They were probably more upset he had revealed that the RAF had Apaches :D

    And there was me thinking they were all Cowboys :D
  8. In an evasive way his '£8.45' torch could have been one of those million candle power jobs; which if shone into the eyes of an Apache pilot, whether it had been stolen by an RAF Support Helicopter pilot (the only type of pilot they are signed up to be) or not, could do some serious damage.

    I am never suprised by the inaccuracies of the media when it comes to defence issues. :roll:
  9. I'm just laughing at the fact it took the Police three weeks to visit him....can you imagine the conversation between the Military and the Police.

    Mil: "You go and arrest him."
    Pol: "Don't you think this is abit pointless arresting a member of the public because he was investigating a noise around his property."
    Mil: "No he dazzled our pilot."
    Pol: "Why would that happen unless your pilot was flying low at 1am over a property and in which case the member of the public can get you on Noise Abatement."

    But seriously though it was wrong of him to use a torch on the Apache who obviously needs to practise flying low at night.
    ...It gives all sorts of people all sorts of ideas.
  10. Is there any particular reason that this Apache was hovering ten foot above the ground over his garden in the dead of in the first place? Is that common practice?

  11. Maybe they were they picking up a pre ordered Pizza and just got the wrong address ?? .. :wink:
  12. They were trying to find out if he was a herbivore or an omnivore. :roll:
  13. Because they can. :)

    Can we assume that operating anywhere near a coastal lighthouse is out of bounds then?
  14. maybe they were delivering the pizza. you know, making a little bit extra on the side when working. Imagine the giant dominoes sign on the underside
  15. Yes, because then you'll be getting too close to the littoral, treading on the WAFU's turf.
