ramfan@btopenworld.com - Left the RAF in 1977 having been posted to Watton, Saxa Vord (3 times), Tangmere (50 TSU), AFCENT (Maastricht & Baraque Michel), Henlow (HFP) and Bruggen. Then I headed to Saudi working for Lockheed Aircraft doubling up as an instructor/engineer on OJT (On Job Training) for the Saudi Airforce. That lasted for 6 years. After 5 years back in the UK working for NEI/DAC and Central Telecom (plus getting married and separated) my next port of call was Oman in 1989 for the first of 3 trips working for Electroman on TROPO and Navaids. Again some OJT was involved. I did a total of 8 years there. During one of my spells back I had a one year contract with BT working up poles and down holes. Up until I finished work completely in 2009 I had a few part time jobs. Now I just take things easy and take yearly trips to Shetland to catch up with friends.
