Found this little gem and thought some of you might enjoy it too smile

Christmas Eve 1957. A pilot is flying home on leave from his base in Germany. He is alone in the cockpit of his jet fighter with enough fuel and reserve to make this a routine flight back to his home base at Lakenheath.


Original story by Frederick Forsyth

Cheers,
Slug

That is a mandatory listen for me at Christmas every year.

It is being made into a short film, featuring one of the two Vampires based here in Norway. I wonder if it will be released this year. Looking forward to watching it.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!
