Default Re: The Airfield on the Roof

Prop Wash seems a handy thing, never heard it being used to start aircraft though. While on Eagle in 1959 I think it was, we did operation 'Pin Wheel' using Skyraiders. I think we used some of the jets as well. This was in Grand Harbour.
Another unusual occurrence on Eagle, was flying of the complete aircraft complement by 'free take off' both cats being u/s.
