El Al 1862 and the Bijlmermeer

El Al 1862 and the Bijlmermeer

The Modernist dream that was the Bijlmermeer had its problems and the last thing it needed was for a crippled aircraft to wreak destruction amongst its dwellers.  This is the tragic story of El Al 1862 and the fate of the Amsterdam neighbourhood it fell into.

The last of the 3 part interview with Sir Glen Torpy.  We chat about his work in some of the most demanding jobs to be found in the RAF, culminating with his appointment as the Chief of the Air Staff.  If you want to find out about the decision to remove the Harrier from service or what’s happening to the RAF Museums then this is one to listen to.

The Sir Glen Torpy Interview: Part 2

We get to the point in Sir Glen’s interview where he is heading to the Gulf to start flying operations and he recalls the the words spoken by Recce pilots of old, “Alone, unarmed and unafraid!”  If you want to hear what it’s like hand flying a Tornado over enemy territory, facing multiple air to air missile and AAA threats, at 150 feet above the ground, in the pitch black, at over 500 knots then wait no longer!
