I agree with you Euan Buchan. If they did it should route ERI - Western General - St Johns’ Livingston.

Re: Mildenhall Air Fete 1997

I have to say that I never saw the SR-71 Blackbird at Mildenhall but seeing the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Fighter and B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber more than made up for not seeing the Blackbird. Although I have seen the SR-71 at Duxford.

Re: Leuchars QRA

One of my biggest regrets about Leuchars closing when it did is that we didn’t get the Airshow in 2018 to celebrate RAF100 now that would have been a good show. No disrespect to The Edinburgh Tattoo and Ayr but the RAF100 Celebration/ Airshow in Scotland Should have been Leuchars Airshow.

Re: Mildenhall Air Fete 1997

Went to 1994, 1997, 1998 & 2000, Loved Mildenhall Air Fete and 1997 was my favourite it would have been between 1997 & 2000 but 1997 edges it as the Weather was better. We should have been at 1999 but Kosovo happened although we went for a look anyway to see what was going on. Should have been at la...

Re: RIAT Fairford 1993

Question regarding the Russian MiG Pilots, did the infamous punch up actually happen? Also I seem to remember a piece of footage in TV showing one of the pilots lighting up a cigarette, is that not dangerous considering whats just happened.

Re: Canadair CL-145 firefighting plane in Alcudia Mallorca

Memories of the Family Holidays when we went to Puerto Pollensa in the summer, I also remember there used to be the odd Puma and on one occasion a Spanish F.27?

Would really love to return there some day and see these again it would be fab!.........

Got a small gaggle of kits in my stash, unfortunately II haven’t got. My storage and display arrangements up yet (shelves) I have nowhere to put them yet as I need help to put the shelves up & no one wants to come near me during the current situation.

Re: Deceased in 2020

So very sad to hear about the passing of Roy Hudd, such a funny man, News Huddlines was one of the funniest Radio Progremmes on. I've actually got the book which I may start reading in tribute.

R.I.P. Roy Hudd Comedy Genius. - Yes I know he was in Corrie but I never really watch it.

Re: The Red Arrows will be moving to.....

I know this is daft but could the right decision be to keep Scampton open and base both the Red Arrows and BBMF at RAF Scampton so as has been mentioned two of the RAFs main Display Teams operate from the same Base? Good question would also be is there enough room?

Re: Scottish Airshow 2020 - funding withdrawn

Lets just all hope that somehow there can be a resolution to this and that we can get an Airshow in Scotland this Year other than East Fortune. No disprespect to East Fortune it is a really good show, but since Leuchars unfortunately had to end their Airshow what other Airshow do we have? Basically ...
