    Bubble Sextants and book "Back Bearings"

    A book I happened to reading right at this moment – the methods and navigational equipment we had in the 70s had changed very little from those of Bomber Command WWII. And here is an extract that is so poignant – so perfect in capturing exactly how it was during training. We trained on a Devon and Dakotas – pretty basic stuff. The Mk IX Sextant was a basic machine but gave good results after years of practice. The P3B Orion – had a Kollsman and was a much much more stable platform and roomy.
