In the sidebar on page 6, the title refers to RAF Leuchars, but the first sentence has it misspelled as Leucchars.
British military terminology is a nightmare - either is correct (as are several other variants!) but I have standardised on a third version for consistency.

Spelling is never my strong point and typing without using my right index finger due to a bad cut doesn't help! Corrected it.

Thanks for the corrections.
