Oh dear!

Who was that with a 7 Air cav badge on? If it is an exchange Spam having a wee go on Lynx then fair enough. However, if someone is putting badges on their kit then that is very sad!

Still miss messing around in one though!!!!!!!!!

Quality video, fully confirms what I want to do when I actually join the real world. Any way to down load it? I'm a bit of a computer spac, see.

Cant get into the video yet, my broadband has suddenly gone very narrow!!!!! God, how I miss the Squadron. We had an amazing bunch of guys down in the Falklands in 85, everyone worked together to produce outstanding results, and all led by the whispering jock !!!

Better go or I'll start crying into my single malt (Irish of course).

The Sqn was split in two for the tour. Between BLMF and Sarajevo.
That was the BLMF one, here's the Sarajevo effort..............


669 Sqn Command Flight












I also have the unofficial groundie drinking vid too. If anyone's interested i'll upload it.

Wow, that vid almost makes Hot Refuelling look as sexy and thrusting as it does in the classic 'Hot Refuelling' video (copyright 1986, available in all good retailers).

Go wing mong go.

The bird and bloke next to the 'badge wearer' appear to be Spam but that doesn't make him one :roll:

However looking closer at 'badgey', that face looks familiar!
PLUS....

UK cold weather flying jacket!



UK flying helmet!



Uk LCJ!



I suspect an Ac Comd / QHI sorting out the troops that they had earlier landed to pick up!! :wink:


Perhaps he should see this!!

669 have had exchange officers from the US Army before, as Lynx Flt Commanders; VA and Tex Avery spring to mind, both wore our CWFJs IIRC. Maybe some kind soul from 'Wileys Own' could put this issue to bed?

He's a doorgunner with the sqn.
I Think he swapped his badge with some Blackhawk crewman from Tusla.
There is an exchange pilot with the sqn though but it isn't him.
