Yet another escapee from the "Prune"......... Registered a ways back but got busy and failed to post. Back again now.

Former AEOp on Nimrods, (201 Squadron and NFTC), emigrated to the US in 1990 to fly helicopters, primarily flying fire contracts and power-lines now, based in Utah and California.

Hopefully retiring in 2021 to sail a catamaran around the world with her indoors.

Welcome Gordy, I haven't sailed around the world, but was a rigger on Nimrods 1970-73 at Kinloss, hope you like it here.

Welcome from Botswana Gordy. Oh dear yet another chopper jocky. We are getting swamped. We even have fixed wing going chopper. Tell you guys just one nut is between you and drilling yourselves into the ground. We did all our sailing training on cats. Thus the name Squiffy Pussy III.
