One minor gripe is that as a serving soldier in the army he's not really in a position to comment on the other issues affecting our soldiers - such as lack of equipment and resources that they have to put up with. Flynn doesn't ignore the subject but you get the impression he'd like to say a lot more on the subject. Away from all the news hype, it would be interesting to see a bit more depth about what how real soldiers deal with it all.
Overall, definitely worth a punt either by buying or borrowing the book.
As for a few RAF personel using a Hercules to pick fresh salmon every weekend, Think about this.. you need a crew pilot, co-pilot. navigator, flight engineer, and a loadie. You need ground crew at both ends of the flight. you need clearance for take off and landing. and if its every weekend as he says you need a lot of tame air traffic controllers, you need to file a flight plan and ensure the aviation athorities whos airspace you'll be using know about it. you need fuel, and you need a C 130, it's hard enough getting a land rover to nip out for some chips and a kebab but to 'borrow' a large plane for a weekend is just getting into fantasy and wishful thinking. there are most likely other people you'd need to involve and then there's the risk that someone would spot an aircraft taking off or landing that they don't know about but should, then they'd make enquiries. You have the fact that its a civilian airport on Benbecula which is closed on sundays and only opened for emergencys, picking up a few fish is not an emergency.Read more ›
