Play / pause Jet Provost

Jet Provost

  • Ed Smith

My favorite close call I think in the Jet Provost

was taking off at night without the flaps set for take off.

And that, I thought I was going to crash then.

But the airplane flew away.

I just carried on.

It was flying at the time and I kept flying it

and as it accelerated it performed normally.

But I came back, straight back.

I didn't write any safety reports

I think I just spoke to my instructor

and said what I'd done.

He said, "You won't ever forget that again." (laughs)

I don't think I did.
