Some great stories of trips to the U.K. and nightstop on Ascention Island etc :tmi: :mail: :good:


It's a lot more sophisticated than that, gear up. :cool2:

When I was a radar operator in the SAAF I was offered a short service commission as an EW [electronic warfare] operator on the B707's [60 sqdn].

I could kick myself now for turning it down - but 4 years is a looong time to a 20 year old...... :shrug1:

I did get to fly around on Safair's 707's though, and lasted 8 years with them.

After 20 days of missions the GlobalTanker is going back home (KCOS), but before leaving, is receiving a water salute from the Arturo Merino Benitez SSEI in gratitude for their work in the worst wildfire that Chile had in its history.
