So that's alright then.

By the way I heard many years ago that modern fighter pilots are trained to such a level of intensity over a period of months that if they then stop flying just for a couple of weeks they can never get back to the same level.

Anyone in the know about this?

Sounds akin to forgetting permanently a sequence of choreographed movements which previously was a no-brainier. Jonathan Edwards (Brit triple jumper) once said he forgot how he jumped to break records and never managed it ever again.
