Our Skipper and the senior officers in my squadron were all Vietnam Vets. They believed that every air-crewman should know the basics when it came to flying the aircraft. When we would fly plane guard it wasn't too unusual for one of the pilots to swap seats with an air-crewman and the other to supervise his flying. I got real good at making left hand turns in a Sea King.
It's taken 10 years, but professional diver Grahame Knott has finally found a US Air Force plane that crashed into the Channel in 1969.
..... the plan is for the Deeper Dorset team to dive down to the wreck site in spring, when the underwater visibility in the Channel will have improved, and to video the wreck from all angles. This will enable a computerised, 3D-image of the crash site to be constructed, and studied by air accident investigators.
