Re: SDSR - this post only

If the Sentinel wasn't being canned, surely it could do some of the Nimrod work? At least monitor shipping, maritime reconnaissance and assist in SAR ops? I'm still totally baffled with the decision to scrap it after Afghanistan, certainly the most peculiar decision of the SDSR for me. On the other...

Re: SDSR - this post only

I cant find anywhere saying they are s...

Re: It's not "naughty" it's dangerous!

Look at the sink rate on the turn and tell me if you think the crew were happy with it afterwards: m. Re the C17 videos. The wingspan of this thing is 170' or so, so even at the lowest point of the 360, (which would appear to be over the higher ground of Totterdown) he's still getting on for 200' A...

Don't think I'm going to bother. Reviews seem far too mixed. With CoD: Black Ops out in three weeks and Assassins Creed Brotherhood out in four weeks, it doesn't seem worth it. Yeah its looking good also If you like Star Wars the Force Unleashed they got a 2nd one coming out aswel next month . I ve...
