They reckon the weakest
the captains had been trained in air-to-air refueling
We haven't got time
And so really
the risk was
for the end of all this trip,
that's at some point he's
was going to break the probe off
So they decided that the poor air-to-air
who would go with the crew
So they knew one another
and so poor old Dick on his 50th birthday.
Never been to war before.
He was absolutely horrified
because he thought he was just
But poor old Dick was sitting there
Nothing to do sitting on his parachute,
dreading every second of it.
And he was hearing all these screams
and he thought his number was up.
And I felt really, really sorry for him

and I still remember
or he did a perfect join up
tech and tactical navigation
And you can actually tell ranges
So as you're coming in,
he would actually know him
I don't know where it is
and it actually worked out a treat
and could see this
with the hose trailing behind.
