Just a passing thought but what if "transformational mindsets" is code for guys that don't participate in inter-service warfare of the kind sparked recently by various RAF types musing out loud that the RAF would be better off with F-35A's.
If I remember correctly, one of those doing the musing is also one of those that has been passed over.
Who was that? It seemed that Atha was the main name, followed Osborne, although he was a Nav so that was unlikely
. Maybe one will shift into CJO to wait for the next shot.
Great move for Fraser, hope he nails it and makes the next step up in a few years.
Considering the timelines involved with the F35 I doubt it had much if any impact on the decisions, there are much bigger issues closing in. Atha was a Harrier mate though.....
