Flying Cowboys - The Good Old Days

The first three pictures are of two seperate incidents, but both involving range control personnel and equipment.

When the pre-flight brief is over (attended by the range safety officer) it used to be a contest of who could get to the range first...the Range Safety Officer in his Corolla or the Jaguar pilots once they were suited up, fired up and in the air. Well it seems that the Jag pilots were a bit quicker getting into the air this one particular day and decided to give the Range Controller's Corolla a low flyby. The guy driving saw one jag go by him in a flash and looked into his rear vision mirror and had time to duck down......the pictures say it all. The Ventral strakes hit either side of the roof and you can see where the three fuselage vent tubes dragged down the center of the roof....can you say lucky guy. Both aircraft returned safely to base

The other picture shows a Jag with some tubing wrapped around a damaged wing. There is an observation tower at range control and when it is normally manned, the pilots liked to to buzz the observer to give a scare....luckily it wasn't manned this day..the pilot got a bit too close this day...The tubing is part of the HAND RAILING on top of the observation tower
