Purchased by the SRAF in late 1950, it was flown mostly in the NATO-assigned role of pilot training.
It is heavily illustrated with photos, many sourced from personalities associated with the SRAF Spitfire era and those involved with her restoration.
These conditions cause that contribution concerning participation of the SRAF
units within operations aimed at the development of the AF capabilities was exploitable in a minimal way.
And the oil entered her blood and helped her see more clearly than before, and the first thing she saw was the sraf.
The mulefa call the substance sraf or more fully "like the light on water when it makes small ripples, at sunset, and the light comes off in bright flakes" (AS 199).
Atal tells Mary, "Ever since we have had the sraf, we have had memory and wakefulness" (AS 199).
The eldest zalif Sattamax explains, "You can see things that we cannot, you can see connections and possibilities and alternatives that are invisible to us, just as sraf was invisible to you" (The Amber Spyglass 234).
Thus, when Lyra and Will "fall" because they, in Mary's words, "saw each other differently" (478), and reverse the flow of Dust, Mary does not even look through the spyglass to see how their sraf clouds appear, for "she knew .
Lyra will have to study in order to regain (to a better degree, it is important to note) her ability to read the alethiometer, but that study is a worthy path to the creation of what the mulefa would recognize as even more beautiful sraf.
Model-based SRAF techniques have been in development for some time but until now have not been used for full-chip applications due to heavy compute costs, poor quality of correction, and/or the extreme impact to mask costs from the pixelated geometries they generate.
Sungwoo Ko, a senior research staff member at Hynix, recognized from his recent work with Tachyon MB-SRAF, "Having access to model-based SRAF capability from Brion Technologies has accelerated our learning and ability to deliver leading edge DRAM.
