    Not just the military. They also teach that in microlight training. Don’t know if I’ve managed to do that on the road?

    I appreciate that for training. Do some people still use an Air 2? I had one for a few years when the first stage only had 3 LP ports. Personally I wouldn’t go back to using one.

    There’s a train station at Skegness, and I remember my grandmother taking me to Hunstanton on the train when I was young. I understand the Hunstanton train has not run for the last few years.

    While using the Tom Tom app on my phone the battery generally lasted about 1 1/2 hours without being plugged in. I guess GPS uses a decent chunk of battery. Would your cell phone be of any use?

    Didn’t they switch off SA during the gulf war? Think it was +-100m with SA switched on. It was fun watching the RIB’s position move when it was stationary on land.
