Discussion in 'Aviation' started by born_to_solder, Nov 6, 2007.

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:

  3. thanks alot mate!! I appreciate the time you took to get the info.
    There are however, at least one error that i know, 4 flight = Elmpt. I know this to be wrong as i am sigs and on this camp its 12 flight.
    Does anyone else see any glaring errors???


    P.S please dont think im being rude mate i appreciate the effort.
  4. Just checking you were paying attention. Or an ageist moment. Fairly confident of the rest though.

  5. thought 651 where odiham these days
  6. I have to admit to taking a bit of a stab in the dark on that one, you will note I have not mentionesd 1 Flt either. The FW are in a bit of a hiatus at the moment with a location v title ding dong going on. For a prospective pilot, key areras of concern are 16x units as the law of averages will see our shiny winged one serving there.
  7. Just surfed through the site and apart from the unit info, there is a lot there that should be good for the interview.

    From stuff we all know, Prince Charles being C in C.... to the stuff we didn't/don't, like the Regimental March. (yes we knew the name but not the tune!)

    By the way......

  8. Why is there a fu*kin gap between 3 4 and 9 Regts.... and 1 Regt. Like we ain't worthy of being some TA part time retarded disfigured cousin that no one invites to a wedding. The recent 50th birthday was a real eye opener...The UK units sent a minibus each. It was embarrassing. 1 regt has been on ops since 2004 CONSTANTLY, at one point both squadrons. OOO it makes my blood boil. Its like the English Channel is a thousand miles wide. Still, best student on the last ADCC and Class 1 Groundies means we ain't all retarded.
  9. At a guess, this is because 3/4/9 are covered by the 16x title (although this is a bit unclear)

    I amsure no disrespect was intended
  10. Feel better now, GG? Suggest you go and lie down in a dark room for a while.

    What is Elmpt? Is it a place or a spelling mistake? :?
  11. OOps, sorry about my ranting. I can see now how it was meant to look and I an suitably embaressed. MG, Elmpt Station is near JHQ, think it was an raf camp, now housing bleep regiment and some Gazelles.
  12. You just done your B1s?

    Only taken 16 years? :D :D
  13. Elmpt=Bruggen.
  14. Not me Goddammit, oh why did i fall for that
