Ok chaps - not a story or interview as such but this is a fascinating page which includes several interviews with Tempest pilots. These include possibly the last ever interview with Pierre Closterman and other interviews with Roland Beamount, Jack Stafford amongst others. I just dont have the time to prepare them as i usually do for the lecture room.

If you are interested please follow the link - it is more than worthwhile.
