RIP!

He sure lucky to have flown such beautiful and one of a kind aircraft.

p.s.

R.N. And R.A.F. should not retired the Harrier in 2011 before a replacement has entered service.

RIP!

A colourful character and a great pilot.


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!
