Mr. Evil has written in to draw our attention to Defence warnings that there’s going to be a major F-18 flypast at midday tomorrow to honour the memory of Wing Commander Dick Cresswell who commanded the 77 Squadron through the Second World War and the Korean War.
The hornets tomorrow are from the squadron he founded, hence the extreme hoopla (they wouldn’t do this for a Prime Minister, the USAF did do it for Ronald Reagan to put it in perspective)
UPDATE: I waited 45 minutes for the damn planes and went home in time to hear them shoot over my building. Humbug however had more luck on top of Mt. Pleasant.
