    Pretty sure the tristar fleets all gone now, getting out of theatre is done by C17 (or C130 if you're unlucky) to Minhad then either the new Voyager Airbus or charter onwards

    Wrong... Lol, Tri-Star are still in use, its only just now they're starting to bring Air-Bus in. Reason you don't see many Tri-Star, is just cause they're to unreliable , though they're still fully being used to ship troops to theatre and back, when available.

    Really, sure there was an article on the defence intranet saying they had done there last service flight. Oh well, teach me to believe MoD journalism. Always liked the Arabic signs in the toilets from when we bought them from Gulf Air about 30 years ago

    no, we still have 216SQN TriStar, your thinking VC10 101SQN they drew down and went out of service 2 weeks ago.

    You're right, having a senior moment. To save face can I say the tristar should be retired

    They'll be retired eventually. Probably not long after Afghanistan finishes, if this Airbus and so forth gets bigger.

    Fire fighters I believe get paid enough for their job, us in the Forces that don't, i get shot at almost daily for what I call "pennies" only to hear that other public services members strike? (Not all in a deparment want to strike I understand that) bottom line is, it should be like the forces, and public services should be exempt from striking as you're working under Her Magisty The Queen!

    Everyone gets annoyed, at digs, and so on, ( though it wasn't a dig) but think how we feel, "Fighting for your country" to only hear oh they're striking again over pay.
