Knight Takes Rook - Saving QueenThe thermometer hanging near the door on a bomb shelter at Chattis Hill Airfield read a pleasant 23 deg Celsius. The warm April day provided Flying Officer Patricia “Pepper” Healy with some relaxation while a ground crew worked across the road on the nearby compass platform. The aircraft is pointed north and the compass set correctly to match. First they had trouble aligning the compass, the process normally takes just a few minutes. Today the equipment has been temperamental and the ground crew had to replace the entire assembly to get it to align properly. Then for some reason the Rolls Royce Griffin engine decided that it was not going to stay firing.Knight Takes Rook - Saving Queen by zmmchaos
Any problems were normally addressed by the assembly crew. Today is anything but normal. The mechanic had not been fully qualified on the brand new Griffin engines like he is on the Merlins and this generated additional issues that only could be handled by someone more capable.
