Jaguar's bow out after 33 years...

A familiar sight over Lincolnshire skies for more than 30 years is to disappear according to the Lincolnshire Echo.

The last remaining squadron of 16 Royal Air Force Jaguars - based at RAF Coningsby is to be decommissioned and will be replaced next year by the Eurofighter Typhoon.

The Rolls-Royce powered Jaguar has given 33 years of service and has a distinguished career and even those not based in the county were often seen over south Lincolnshire as they used the RAF’s bombing ranges at Holbeach and Wainfleet.

Aberrant apostrophe Mr Dilks. You'll never progress to the subs desk if you keep that up.

quite right too chief.

i'll quickly change the headline from 'Jaguar's bow out' to 'Jaguars bow out' before anyone notices'.

i blame the computer.

thank's.

chief:

i've had second thoughts.

i only reached "O" level English -as is clearly evident.

however, since i was talking about the bowing out of "the Jaguar", is my apos. really as aberrant as you suggest?

Chief Sub said...

Yes, it is! What possession of the Jaguar is doing anything?

Dearie me, I hope no one in Bermuda relied on your copy as a writing guide :)
