Visit to RAF Leuchars - May 31st 2006

Assembly at Leuchars Visit on May 31st 2006

We are greatly indebted to our RAF Liaison Officer, F/Lt Neil Whitehead, for arranging a visit by Saltire Branch members, to RAF Leuchars on 31st May 2006. Not only did we enjoy Lunch in the Officers Mess, but also the talk by F/Lt Whitehead on his operational tasks in the Baltic and Iraq. This was followed by `hands on' inspection of Tornado aircraft in the hangar and safety equipment update. It therefore seemed ungracious after all this RAF hospitality, for several of our members to prang a number of sophisticated Tornados - I hasten to add purely on the Tornado Simulator. Thanks to No.56(R) Squadron, a highly successful visit greatly appreciated by Saltire Branch members. Although some members conceded afterwards, that present-day aircrew are flying away above our heads - in more ways than one!
