Re: Building 27 RAF Northolt

I was lucky enough to get a tour around the Northolt Ops Room during its restoration after an Airspace Working Group meeting in the Officers Mess and was really impressed with the attention to detail. The film is a moving tribute to the Poles. At North Weald we also had Polish pilots serving, some o...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp - Ageing Aircraft Audit

Well the oldest British airworthy aircraft is over 100 years old and still doing what it was built for! https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/v165/YakRider/Blackburn_1080.jpg?width=1920&height=1080&fit=bounds AN-2s are still great workhorses https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/v165/YakRider/An_2...

Re: Any swifts/swallows yet?

There was a recent news item that a lot got caught in storms over the Med, so numbers will sadly be down this year. There weren't that many around last year either.

Re: North Weald Spring/Summer 2019 (Updated)

Nice to see some shots from the Southern ORP. Shooting on Runway 02 further down isn't easy because of the light.

It was my final day at North Weald on Friday, as I have now retired after ten years on the Ops Team, so will be looking forward to your coverage Dan to keep me up to date!
