Re: Valiant Air Command Museum, Titusville, FL

The F-8 and the A-7 were together in the corner - tricky to photograph.

Valiant Air Command Museum, Titusville, FL

Our second visit here but the last was 2010. A few changes well worth seeing. Some beautifully preserved aircraft. Photography was tricky but in typical US style, very few barriers around the aircraft. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52292004585_c077d3013c_h.jpg aa20220807_145805 by Derek N.Ferg...

Re: New PM - who would you choose?

Starmer is still leader of his party. Johnson will not be for long. Why should the leader of the opposition do anything when the the party opposite is self-destructing in front of him? All he has to do is wait. Talking of leaders of the opposition, I think we have already forgotten the non-entities ...

A few thoughts on my RIAT visit. I went on Friday and Saturday. Good • Getting in – easy on the green route - parked by 7am both days. Parking on the field was well organized and efficient • Site entry – longish queue on Saturday but moved quickly after 7.30am. First photo at 7:55 • Static display –...

There's a part of me that wants Johnson to go and go now. He has shown himself to be utterly incapable and unsuitable of the job of PM. Many of us knew this before he became PM - he was a disaster as Foreign Minister, what made anyone think he would be any better as PM? He is doing immense damage to...
