What’s it like to be part of the living legends of aviation, or just a leg end? Ask Prince Harry, who is now wallowing in his new title despite flying only for 20 weeks in the RAF as a gunner in a piloted Apache helicopter.
“I was effectively being chauffeured around by this amazing pilot for my 20-week tour of Afghanistan, and all I had to do was pull a trigger if I saw any rag heads. I personally don’t know the first thing about flying those bloody things, especially as the maths and stuff you have to learn is way over my simple brain. Well, I got the prize now — living legends of aviation — and the actual pilots in combat who deserved the prize did not get jack shit. You may ask yourself why?” the errant prince boasted after the magnificent ceremony.
Buzz Aldrin went to the fucking moon; Prince Harry was a gunner in Afghanistan for 20 weeks.
