It didn't float, it was on the sea bed in shallow water and it was carried out to the ship on a pontoon which you can see beneath the aircraft as it's being lifted aboard by crane on to the flight deck.
We moved it below deck to storage in the hangar and cannibalised parts from it for the rest of the commission, then it went for repair.

Further to my last and as it was too windy to fly today, I had a look through my archives and found the following piece of history about cab 131:-
Lt. Cdr. Bob McCulloch RN. Commanding Officer 899 Squadron. January 1967 wrote:-
In retrospect one amusing event occurred at RAF Gan. Whilst using Gan as the diversion one of the Vixens had to divert to the airfield. The pilot F/O Lewis RAF (another development at that time) on finding that one of his wheel brakes unserviceable, and remembering his airfield briefing, asked for the "barrier" to be raised. On being told that this had been done he landed but could see no barrier, there followed a series of "where is it", "its up" etc before the aircraft gently rolled into the sea at the end of the runway. The irate Wing Commander Flying was more than a little taken aback to find two RAF officers climbing out of the Vixen and an irate John Lewis asking where hell was the barrier; the RAF "barrier" was in fact an arrestor wire! So much for interservice co-operation, the RAF later changed the name to hook wire.
I was one of the lads on the flight deck looking down; please note that the crew were RAF on exchange
Nice photos and I see that they have one of my squadron aircraft, 131, which I worked on fifty years ago on the Eagle Shep

In the MIxes tab at the bottom you'll see options for delay and up/down
Double click on the switch you're using.
Or if you're doing it on the Tx go to MIXER then hold down Ent on the u/c switch for edit options.

|Thread: Open TX 2.1.8 Sound Problem|
2.0.17....................RTFM mea culpa.
All good now, thanks Andy
I upgraded my T+ to 2.1.8 today. The telemetry is different (thanks Andy48), but other than that it was simple enough, except the voltage sound reporting.
The Sensor and T+ both read 4.10v for the lowest cell, but the voice warning reports 4.6 volts!
Any pointers please people?

|Thread: Taranis Failsafe|
Andy, I too need to upgrade to 2.1.7
Is it solely the telemetry part that needs re-programming? Shep

|Thread: 'Automatic' Windows 10 Upgrade ?|
So was I, I let my laptop upgrade from 8.1 to 10 a few months ago and it's been fine.
My desktop upgraded from 7 to 10, without my intentional input, two days ago. It's also fine and faster than it was.
Time will tell; I have a few weeks to decide in or out! I've already decided on the other in or out
