Forget the clip at the start of that ******** Tom Cruise......

My favourite is No 3, the RAF Harrier, is this guy cool or what ?

In fact there are several showing British jets and UK personel

Is that sound of the engine or the pilot whining? :D I've got to disagree with you there I think the Mirage has got to be the best and the KC135 is also impressive.

Kinell!!! I'm sure some of the drivers have to shake the gravel out of their foreskins when they land. When they fly that low, does the height-show thingy on the dashboard (sorry about the technical terms there) actually indicate "six foot" or "ten foot", or do they just trust to luck?

The KC-135 is impressive in that the wings didn't come off! That's some feat of flying.

A colleague of mine, who also was the second on the balcony, used to have a job manning a radio in FI.
If it looked like Argie-Air was on the way, he'd press the button on the radio, and say, "Cue", or "Scramble" or whatever, and the jets on the runway would screech into the blue yonder to go do some war.

On his afternoon off, he went to a bunker buried such that the runway is at eye level, and wagered that none of the drivers could do a flypast low enough for the plane to be visible in the narrow slit of the bunker.

After about the 3rd attempt, they'd got it. By our hero keeps telling them that they're nowhere near, and they get progressively lower and lower.

Eventually he has to concede that he's lost the bet and hands over his hard-earned beer tokens. He was sad to lose the money, but claims it was worth it to see the the look on the all the visiting admiral-types who lost their hats that day.

As much as I admire the flying. They're still homos.

This is also ARRSE, not PPRUNE, and in current affairs, not Aviation. FAIL ;)
Indeed, as one of our most famous WWI officers said - "they may go up-diddly-up, but they're still gits".

Oh dear, there's always one....

I believe the last case of someone being charged with Homosexuality when it was illegal in the military, was several chaps in the Army.
