    Hello Dave,
    Have corrected my post, thanks for heads up.
    With reguard to the picture of the group of trainee pilots in the link you kindly provided.
    Would it be possible for you(time allowing) to post the picture on the forum in a separate post to enquire if any of the other trainee's can perhaps be identified ?
    Thanks for your reply.
    Alex
