Re: Last Concorde Visit to Edinburgh, 24 Oct 2003

I remember being a little disappointed at first that this Concorde G-BOAE wasn’t the Concorde which has come to East Fortune - That honour has gone to the equally elegant looking G-BOAA. Have decided to get down to East Fortune again to see Concorde amongst other Aircraft as soon as we are allowed t...

Re: Last Concorde Visit to Edinburgh, 24 Oct 2003

Certainly was an emotional day, took the day off Work especially to see Concorde airborne for the final time. Certainly was a busy day around Edinburgh with the place filled with people, spotters and public alike all wanting to see this excellent aircraft one last time. Just a shame they couldn't ha...

Re: RAF Sentinel Retirement.

Another cost based crazy MoD decision and of course no direct replacement. Sorry to see this Aircraft go, saw it at Paris, Waddington & Leuchars Airshows.

Re: Concorde arriving at Museum of Flight 2004

Once this Covid business is over I must pay East Fortune a visit. I have to visit Concorde again & see the Red Arrows Hawk they have now. Also I don’t think I’ve been down since they reorganised the Museum.

Re: Scotland's National Museum of Flight

Definately got to get down again, haven't seen the Red Arrows Hawk yet. In fact I haven't been down since they reorganised the whole museum.

I guess that Vulcan must be in need of a little TLC now?

Re: Phantoms in a Glasgow scrapyard April 1992.

XV571 which I cannot remember ever seeing but a look in my spotting log says I did and XV574 Z of 111 Sqdn both had amazing colour schemes, both long gone but much missed as you say it's a shame more RAF Phantoms were able to be preserved.

Like you Wrexham Mackem IAT ‘91 was the one and only time I saw an EA-3B Skywarrior and like you I luckily got a photo of it, shame we had to return home to Scotland on Sunday so never saw the departure (or the arrival for that matter), but so just see it was good enough. Lovely aircraft.
