Spare a thought for our fellow aviators who got up this morning and started to brief this. I can feel a time delay coming on and the second window in use.

"Chaos" and "Kukri" I understood, but had to look up "Clart" - now I wonder which one it is meant to be?

QBF = "Are you flying in cloud?"...

..."I am flying in cloud at ... flight level/altitude ... [and I am ascending (descending) to flight level/altitude

32 (The Royal) Squadron use "Claret" as a callsign. Looks like it was used by one of their 146s in the QBF. Military callsigns are often abbreviated to five characters, hence CLART instead of CLARET.
