  1. I would like to ask the Flight Surgeon whether there is a link between 6 years of experimental testing at the Royal Air Force Institute of Aviation Medicine, pulling high levels of G forces and taking part in Rapid Decompressionsand my disability due to a complete collapse of my lower spinal discs.
