    RAF on BBC 10 O'Clock News

    Did anyone see the QRA item on the BBC 10pm News last night?

    It showed the RAF in a good light for once at least, even if it made us look like we are ready to shoot down airliners! They should have stressed that it would be on direct orders from the politicians not their "Airships" at STC. Got to wonder though why it was the first item on the news (maybe some good PR before they go full tilt into the RAF Medical Officer Court Marsahll faff). Apparently the Typhoon will be featured tonight.

    Anyone got any stories of how many days they took to do filming and how many cups of tea you had to make for them (having had experience of Tom Mangold and his Panorama bunch of pork pieers years ago over the Nimwacs project, I know the media can be a PITFA ).

    To get anything onto the BBC News, and therefore, to get it seen World Wide, is quite a feat for good or bad publicity.

    These could be two reasons for putting this item on the "First Spot" of the Worldwide BBC News- above the rest of the world's news:

    1. It's a BBC World Exclusive Report - although this is an unlikely reason to place it above major stories such as Voting in Iraq, or the Avian Flu's Tour of Europe.

    2. There has been a direct threat to UK airspace and some visible deterrent is quickly needed! - Work that one out for yourself!
    ...looked alright to me!

      What they didn't say was that was the only serviceable F3 available in the whole country!

      Tonight we get to see the only 'S' Typhoon and if we are really unlucky some more ugly scopie girlies, what munters they were.

        or...

        3. There has been nothing worth reporting or making up lately!

            Yes, tell them that it's the politicians' decision - that should scare the s**t out of them!
