Me and My 'Nimrod'
Quote from ‘One Life Left’ when Wg. Cdr. Garlick took one of these to 20,000 feet without oxygen – “With an official limit of ten thousand feet for flights without oxygen the C.O. called for volunteers for this trip, which was just about as high as a Nimrod would go and, because of the almost continuous talking required, would be comparable to a greater height than the twenty thousand feet asked for. To my surprise I found myself to be the only volunteer; for a flight that proved to be completely without incident.”
