    Walt its a cut-off saw petrol engine driven ,I cannot remember the detail but some had a blade for cutting into the persrex on the cockpit if a pilot or nav were trapped inside and the emergency release had been damaged.

    In the early days i think they were still saw and later on they went onto the partner power saw. They were fitted with stone discs to reduce sparks when cutting into metal.

    There was also the husquvana saw but I couldn't spell it !!!

    Q did you not carry both types of discs in additionto the spark problem i believe the metal cutting blade could go POP if it became clogged with molten perspex again increasing the ignition risk ??/ Hoe about some RHAG questions ???

    I think that was the case in the earlier days with larger aircraft. Fast jet aircraft had MDC and LCC which go pop when cut!!

    The good old Husqvarna. In 82 we had a Tornado at Honington with canopy stuck down. Station Commander would not allow us to use MDC. Tried Husqvarna with then stone blade to no avail. Ended up using, carefully the Rippa Gun. Will try Honington S Fire O to get photos for me.

    A bit more to the above. The Armourers kept telling us that It would not go bang as it took a dtonator todo that. We still were very scared doing it though. We had both sections of the canopy in the training room. Maybe they are still there.
