Has anyone ever used the Life Saving signals as per Solas card 2?
Is it advisable to fire a star shell in the vicinity of an aircraft? I know these only rise to about 65m but surely this would ruin any pilot’s nite vision especially if wearing nite vision gear?

Similarly, why ICAO “Y” for yes and the international code “C”
