    My son who is a real spotter after 16 years in the RAF attended Riat this year and thought the Reds were v poor compared to the other teams. I served 39 years and many in my time thought the reds were a waste of defence resources. Excess drinking has always been rife in RAF flying sqns.

    I would think that bouts of drinking to excess have always been a problem for each service and it's no different to bonded groups in industry...esprit de corps and all that. That said I cannot think of an occasion when anyone turned up on the squadron in the morning under the influence of drink..

    RAF PR has assured the public that there has never been a case of a Red Arrows pilot flying whist drunk.

    If you introduce females into an ultra masculine environment what do you expect. Two options:-

    - Stop diversity hiring - no women = no problem
    - Have your Armed Forces made up of Eunuchs.
