RAF Waddington. Demonstration against Drone Strikes

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by AfghanAndy, Apr 27, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Maybe it's just some of the old and bold getting upset because they'll get their Afghanistan OSM without having to leave the UK?
     
  2. It looks cool, I'm pretty sure they also get their own drone pilot wings as well now.

    You have to keep up apperances. You can`t go flying drones in jeans and a sweatshirt.
     
  4. maybe one of the lads will test a drone on them ??
    I am sure that many of these protests are being funded or manipulated by groups with interest
    after all how many people can waste the time to drive there and spend all day protesting
    apart from students ?

  5. Why not......


    All socialists are ***** : )
     
  6. Because like the most Crabs they're big timing *****.

    Is there any record of any RAF drone pilots shooting at their own drones after a contact to appear more ally yet?

  7. BBC featuring this prominently today in an interview with a Stop The War group. And it just had to be the Grauniad, didn't it!
     
  8. Do they wear Personal Protection Weapons? Do they carry Survival Kits? What about CATs, Israeli bandages and morphine? And do they shout "Eject, Eject, Eject!" if they fall off their chair?

    As far as the crusties go, hopefully the RAF Regiment have been briefed and are stood too in the NAAFI (as per feckin usual) in case The Battle Of Waddington breaks out!

  9. Do they still do the SERE course?
     
  10. I remember a Canuck telling me once that they UAVs used to be flown by any body in their equivalent of the RE or RA. No issues. As soon as the RCAF decided to get into it with trained pilots there were crashes galore.

    I tink you'll find that they just report the news, not make it.
