Magnum force: What a RAF pilot will do for ice cream…

The Sun has recently reported that some RAF airmen were seen emerging from a chopper on the beach at Winterton-on-Sea, Norfolk to head for the nearby Winterton Dunes Beach Café for ice cream – specifically three Magnum Classics and one white chocolate Magnum. Apparently, the café assistant asked what was going on and one crew member told him: “We’re all entitled to a tea break.”

Given we are in the midst of austerity, some readers were critical with one pointing out in the comments section that the chopper “consumes far much more fuel landing and taking off than in mid air or parked at an air base.” Otherwise and for what its worth to mention, I would point out that its unlikely the RAF took “tea breaks” for ice cream during the middle of Battle of Britain…
