A better show than last time far less virtual displays. Some interesting information. Just had a piece from the Ukrainian Su-24. They have said they want to be at RIAT next year, yes please! Oh and Peter get a shave! :smile:

Re: 48hr photo comp: show us yer undercarriage!

Luckily because I am a modeller, I do detail shots. First one is easy as I work on this quite often, Lindy's Port gear whilst were doing a brake pack change.

Re: Riat 2007my first friat...what a grey day!!!!!

Another vote for the F-15, Andy well captured indeed! I was lucky in that I had seen the MR4 fly regularly, but it was a first time for an open bomb bay. I was down the 09 end for the stealth's as I wanted to practice landing shots, because it wasn't the last time I saw them... :smile:

Re: Another thing a F-35 cannot do.

Hi Sam, my understanding is the soft ware on the F-35 does not allow the jet to land if the gear is retracted, there was a test aircraft tried to land with a nose wheel retracted the software stopped the attempt till they managed to override and then it landed with a stand holding the nose up. (it w...

Another thing a F-35 cannot do.

The USAF keep wanting to replace the A-10, its yesterdays jet, but as this article shows one thing that counts is ruggedness. I've no doubt this will be repaired and put back in service. A F-35 would be so much carbon fibre (or whatever it's made of! ) https://uk.yahoo.com/news/air-force-awards-10-p...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Andy it was 2007, I was there. I believe it was at that time, the only time all aircraft the BoB had was on public display at a show. The Twin pin was last I heard at Coventry, needing a wing spar, I do not know if it moved with the rest of the collection down south.

So we stayed overnight before the shoot. to do some practice and promo work for a later event. The first 2 pics were actually taken on the 19th. But rain stopped play ...
