    Default ORB Abbreviations: "O.E.T." and "N.O.E.T."

    Hi all

    In some Canadian (6 Gp) Sqns ORB's I've come across the above abbreviations where sorties had to be aborted. I've not come across them before.

    The only thing I can think of is that these abbreviations stood for "Over enemy territory" or "Not over enemy territory" and that they might have been used in the case of aborted ops / early returns where it would be decided whether or not the op had counted towards a crew's tour.

    Anyone know? Is that correct?

    Thanks

    Ian

    Hi Ian,

    from my point of view it looks correct and logic.

    Also in my list of abbreviations compiled from many sources I have:

    NOET Not Over Enemy Territory
