when we flew the Hawk,
and that was a very good airplane, lovely airplane to fly.
It was a different level of performance
from the Jet Provost.
And we (chuckles) specialized in finding out
how much we could do with it
when we had our solo training flights.
Racing around the island, Anglesey Island was the favorite.
We got up to coming home bragging
about how fast we managed to make the Hawk fly.
And yet it still felt as though we were
nibbling at the edges of our ability.
We felt, I felt a bit vulnerable
to things that could go wrong, I don't know why.
