Here’s a scan of the Gnat T Mk 1 Flying Instructor’s Manual, as used at RAF Valley during the 1970’s. Thanks Batty, for the original.
Last one for today – Bulldog T Mk 1 FRCs.
I’m on a roll – Hawk T Mk 1 FRCs from 1978 (RAF Valley) and 1979 (RAF Brawdy).
And here are the FRCs for the JP 5A that I flew at RAF Cranwell in 1976-77.
We’ve spent the last few weeks sailing the Balearics – Valencia to Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca and then on to Sardinia. We’re learning how the boat works and how to fix her!

I’ve got a couple of aviation watches from a UK company called AVI-8. My latest is a Lafayette Chronograph Flyboy (which appears to be out of stock at the time of writing).
I think it’s a great-looking watch – order early for Christmas! And for a significant discount, use the code “keithcampbell” at checkout.
We spent most of February sailing our new boat, Mistral, from Valencia to Palma and back. The boat is a 2001 Oyster 56, and we love her!
We escaped Spain just before the lockdown, and have spent the last ten weeks in lockdown in France. Once we’re released we’ll travel back to the UK to visit friends and family, then head off to the boat again.
