    Whilst walking along the beach near Hornsea, East Yorkshire i picked up this ariel cover from a RAF 60's 70's 80's period emergency beacon. It amazes me that the last person to see it was a pilot sitting in his dinghy having ejected from his aircraft, possibly a lightning, awaiting his rescue.
    The aluminium part has almost completely corroded away, but the plastic is in remarkably good condition.

    I wonder if the poor pilot did?....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    There was a lightning that crashed in the area in 1970 where the pilot wasn't recovered, there is a theory that he was taken by aliens!! The aircraft was found intact on the sea bed with the canopy closed !
    I like to think the pilot was rescued.
