Walking to a beach laying down listening to the sounds around after falling deeper in the sand collet in 3 pebbles wrighting your worst worry and throw it as far into the sea watching it disappear the same with 2nd and 3rd loosing 3 worry then lay down and tense your whole body and then high light the feeling and take note of what it feels like to completely relax and stay relax.
YOU ALL MIGHT LAUGH BUT TRY IT AND TELL ME YOU DON'T FEEL BETTER AFTER.

On this day in 1982, the first British attack in the Falklands conflict sees a single Royal Air Force Vulcan (XM607) bomb Stanley airfield and render it unsuitable for Argentine fighter aircraft, in round-trip of 8,000 miles from Ascension Island. #falklands40

The photo shows RAF personnel in front of an Avro Vulcan at RAF Waddington prior to the aircraft's deployment to the Falklands in 1982, where she would ultimately take part in night-time bombing raids (Operation Black Buck) targeting the western end of the runway at Stanley Airport on the Falkland Islands to try and prevent it from being extended by Argentinian engineers to accommodate 'high-performance' combat aircraft.

The raids, at almost 16 hours for the return journey, were the longest-ranged bombing raids in history at that time. After taking off from Ascension Island and making a journey of 3,900 miles across open water, the Vulcan would then move on to the target. In order for the Vulcan to reach the Falklands, eleven Victor tankers were assigned to a single Vulcan. They had to transfer fuel to the Vulcan and each other in a complex refuelling relay before each turned in sequence for home.

OPERATION NI**OD

On This Day: April 30th, 1980:

Six armed men entered the Iranian Embassy in South Kensington, taking hostages and beginning a six day, high profile standoff.

On the first day of the siege, two teams from the Special Air Service (SAS) were dispatched from Hereford to Regent's Park Barracks where they took up covert positions and began planning for a potential assault.

As negotiations went back and forth between the hostage takers and the Police, the SAS were busy studying architectural plans, building profiles of the hostage takers and creating access routes into the embassy.

By the sixth day, the stress of the situation on both sides led to a breakdown in negotiations and shots were heard from inside the embassy. Control was signed over to Lieutenant Colonel Mike Rose. At 19:23, Operation Ni**od, the SAS assault began.

The meticulously planned assault got off to a difficult start as an abseiling SAS trooper became entangled and explosives could not be used for fear of injuring him. They smashed an entrance into the embassy, alerting the hostage takers inside. Shortly after, a fire began severely burning the entangled man, who was cut free and continued the assault despite his injuries.

At part of the co-ordinated assault, Blue Team detonated explosives on a first floor window, in full view of the assembled television crews who were broadcasting live. A brief, violent struggle took place in which the SAS troopers killed five of the hostage takers and captured the sixth. At the height of the raid, one of the hostage takers produced a gr***de in the vicinity of the hostages. An SAS trooper pushed him to the bottom of the stairs where he was shot dead.

The event, broadcast live launched the SAS to an unwelcome fame and they were swamped with applications. The event exemplified the British governments policy of "Refusing to give in to terrorist demands".

RIP Sir 😪

Today we remember Captain Steven Peter Wormald of the 2nd Bn Royal Anglian Regiment, aged 28, who died as a result of a landmine explosion in Rajci, Bosnia and Herzegowina, on 29th April 1994.

The Land Rover he was travelling in hit an anti-tank mine at 3.15pm local time, three miles from Gornji Vakuf. The vehicle was on a minor road - not the main road that leads to Bugojno - and appears to have been on a reconnaissance patrol. Three local guides were also in the Land Rover.

"Steven was a loving husband, son, brother and loyal friend. The sense of loss never fades but being loved by you still brings me joy. Thank you, Jo."

Today we remember him.

In September of 1942, an American plane took off in Europe flown by Lt. Robert Elliot.

At 6,000 ft the left engine gave out. Elliot decided to try and land. As he did so however the other engine stopped so he had to crash land in 2ft of water.

This is the plane.

Few local people were aware of the plane at the time because beaches in the UK were closed to the public during the war. So it sat there and became covered.

Due to shifting sands, the plane has only become uncovered three times: once in the 1970s, 2007, and most recently in 2014.

The plane is a Lockheed P-38 and one of the few of its types to survive the war. The exact location of the plane remains a secret in an attempt to protect it from disturbances, though the aircraft is covered by the Protection of Military Remains Act and disturbing it carries heavy fines.

It was recently given protected status in Wales, meaning it will not be disturbed.

On the 28th April 1789, Captain William Bligh and eighteen crew members had been cast adrift from the HMS Bounty that had been sailing from Tahiti to the West Indies. It was on the 14th June that they reached the island of Timor after travelling nearly 4,000 miles in a small boat.

Captain Bligh eventually returned to England arriving on the 14th of March the following year to find the country was already talking of the mutiny. He was at first proclaimed a hero, but later court-martialled for the loss of his ship. This resulted in his acquittal.

The crew of the HMS Bounty, led by Fletcher Christian, mutinied just off the Friendly Islands. Following setting their captain adrift, they headed for the Pitcairn Islands

Who was the goody and baddie in this sad tale?

Was it Bligh, the supposed cruel and brutal Captain? Was Fletcher Christian a hero for not being afraid to stand up to a bully or was Bligh doing what he was supposed to do, that is captain his ship and keep control his men. Was Christian a rebel who mutinied when he was denied what he wanted.

What was the truth I wonder?

Now that's a flypast! RAF veteran pilot,, relives the split-second decision he made to fly through a busy Tower Bridge in 1968 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

RAF pilot Alan Po***ck has only seven seconds to make a life-and-death decision. He’s just feet above the waters of the River Thames in a fighter jet travelling at 300 miles per hour. Less than half a mile ahead, blocking his way, is Tower Bridge. He can see that it’s busy with pedestrians and that a double-decker bus is driving slowly across it. Should he fly through?
In the end, he decided to go for it. It was April 5, 1968. Harold Wilson was prime minister, there were protests against the Vietnam War in London, and the Beatles’ Lady Madonna was No. 1.

The start of the month had also marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Air Force. The RAF was much loved — the feats of the pilots in the Battle of Britain were still fresh in the memory, and the new generation of jet pilots were in the front line of Britain’s Cold War defence.
Thirty-two-year-old Flight Lieutenant Alan Po***ck was one of those pilots. He had joined the RAF in 1953 and had risen through the ranks, gaining experience in aircraft including de Havilland’s Vampire jet fighter and its successor the Venom.

He had served in Germany and the Middle East and as an aide-de-camp to Air Marshal Sir Humphrey Edwardes-Jones during his time as Nato Air Commander. Alan loved the RAF and felt its 50th anniversary should be celebrated with a flypast over London. There had been an official dinner and a few parades — but no flypast. This, he felt, was a terrible slight.
‘One thing that was in the Air Force’s blood was that you celebrated in the air, not on the ground,’ Alan, now 82, says at his home in Surrey. He was serving at the time in No. 1 Squadron. This is the RAF’s oldest unit and as such he believed it had a responsibility to take the lead in ensuring the half-centenary was celebrated properly. Alan decided to take matters into his own hands by staging a flypast of his own.

On April 4, Alan and three other Hunter pilots from his squadron had flown from their base at West Raynham in Norfolk to RAF Tangmere in Sussex, the former home of No. 1 Squadron, where they were helping to celebrate the base being given the freedom of the city of Chichester. He decided that the following day, on their way back, he would make a detour over the capital.

‘It was worth flying over London, even if I was going to get court-martialled,’ Alan says. At the very least, a trial would give him a chance to have his say on the problems facing the Air Force. By tapping out coded messages using the transmitter button on his radio, he told his colleagues he had lost visual contact and that he was having problems maintaining spoken communication.

All Alan had with him for reference was a borrowed AA map, on which he had marked a route across London. Within a few minutes and keeping low to avoid commercial air traffic, he reached Heathrow Airport where he turned right and headed for Richmond Park and then the Thames.
Flying over the river would be the safest and quietest route through the capital. ‘I went over the Thames because I didn’t want to cause any trouble,’ Alan says.

His memories of the flight are vivid. The Hunter was flying in a ‘gin-clear’ blue sky and ‘one felt like Gulliver looking down at Lilliput’. He dropped to about 150 feet and began to fly over the bridges, keeping to the middle of the river and looking out for helicopters. Alan, angry at defence cuts and what he saw as the Labour government’s complicity in the lack of celebrations for the anniversary, headed for Parliament and Downing Street. As he crossed Vauxhall Bridge he saw Westminster in the distance. Just as Big Ben struck midday, he opened the Hunter’s throttle and began three low, loud circuits of Parliament.

‘I put the power on then. I thought: “Stuff it, let them hear some noise!” The funny thing was that at the time, they were discussing noise abatement.’
One building annoyed him — 380-foot Millbank Tower, just upstream from Parliament. ‘I hadn’t expected Millbank Tower to be there, which was a dirty great thing. It spoiled my turns.’ Alan was told later by Iain Duncan Smith’s father, Spitfire ace Wilfred Duncan Smith, that he heard Alan’s engines from on the 6th floor of the Ministry of Defence building as he talked to Sir John Grandy, chief of the Air Staff. Sir John looked up towards the sky, trying to see the plane. Duncan Smith had to put him right, telling him, ‘No, look down there!’ Meanwhile, Alan was searching for Downing Street. ‘I wanted to make a noise over No. 10 as well. I didn’t have a target map so I couldn’t see where it was.’ He waggled the Hunter’s wings in tribute as he passed over the RAF Memorial by Whitehall and then headed downstream towards the City. The jet flashed safely over Hungerford Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, Southwark Bridge and London Bridge.

Then he was in for a surprise. ‘There, staring me in the face, was Tower Bridge. I’d forgotten it was there! ‘I could have gone over it, but I was intrigued by it as a target.’ He decided to fly through it, squeezing the aircraft at high speed between the busy road and the walkway over it.
The cranes of the Pool of London were to his left as he took the Hunter even lower over the water, his altimeter barely registering.
Peter Arnold, a steward on the cargo ship Baltic Sun, was terrified the jet would crash but ‘it straightened out and shot over our heads. I thought I was dreaming’.

Alan recalls: ‘Right at the last minute, as my cockpit canopy was just below the bridge and the girders were all around me, in that microsecond I remembered I’d got a tail fin behind and I thought: “I’m going to lose the fin!” ’

Somehow, the Hunter made it through. A cyclist on the bridge tumbled off his bike in fright, tearing his trousers. George Tapper, the Tower Bridge Watchman, was nearby. ‘There was the most thunderous roar. I looked up and, whoomph, a big silver jet roared by,’ he said. Alan pointed the Hunter’s nose downstream and kept going. Once he was over Essex, he headed north, back to base at RAF West Raynham. Flight Lieutenant Po***ck’s unofficial fly-past was over. When he landed, the first thing he did was burn his AA map. If he did end up being court-martialled, he didn’t want such an embarrassing piece of evidence being made public.
Then he rang his wife’s mother. ‘There might be a bit of trouble — but not to worry,’ he told her.

In the end, Alan was given a medical discharge instead of a court-martial, possibly to deny him the chance to explain his reasons for the flypast.t concluded that Alan was lucid enough to face a court-martial. Hundreds of letters of congratulation from RAF colleagues and members of the public arrived at Alan’s squadron, along with a barrel of beer from BOAC.
An all-party motion of support, tabled in the House of Commons, was signed by six MPs (four of whom had been in the RAF). In the end, Alan was given a medical discharge instead of a court martial, possibly to deny him the chance to explain his reasons for the flypast.
After leaving the RAF, he went on to work for Ford and the fire engine manufacturer Dennis.

Looking back now, he has no regrets. ‘I left on a high point and I was so lucky to be flying such a magnificent aircraft as the Hunter,’ he says. ‘The RAF is the best career you can have.’

An all-party motion of support, tabled in the House of Commons, was signed by six MPs (four of whom had been in the RAF). In the end, Alan was given a medical discharge instead of a court-martial, possibly to deny him the chance to explain his reasons for the flypast.
