NAVWASS

IIRC.... NAVWASS on UK Jaguars and others used a system of the following.....

Program into the nav comp your known position using Eastings and Northings.

Take off.

Aircraft gyros and pitot tubes giving references to turns, speeds etc will update the nav comp in real time using a nice mix of both analogue and digital electronic gubbins.

No GPS required and certainly no GPS was used in my time in avionics.

Navigational error? Erm, none that I can ever remember.

Re: A modern hero

I am sitting here, quite happily with my tin hat on, in my bunker, awaiting the MASSIVE amount of red thumbs I shall gain from this post.

But, however, my correction to this post is simply "There is no complex mathematics involved."

Or, shortened, "There is no complex maths involved"

As I understand it, we are in the UK, therefore the US version should be held in contempt.

Most things originating in the US at the moment are, indeed, held in contempt, so here is my one penny worth!

Virgin Media - A Good Day to Bury Bad News

Oh Gawwwwwd... what cunning plan are they about to pull now? Increase in their package prices? Call charges going up? Or is old Branston tits feeling a little bit hot under the collar?

To be honest, they need to get rid of their two bit overseas "Read from the script, not around the script" operations and get their management to sort their lives out.

Paris - cos she could do a better job than them twunts.
