Re: BBMF Lancaster email

The info in the original post is very interesting. I've often wondered why WW2 airfields had the A shaped runway configuration - now I know 👍🏻

Hopefully the issues can be resolved ASAP.

Re: Blackbird's maiden visit to Little Gransden 29 August 2021

Lovely set of shots. Love that US marked Spitfire and it's also great to see the RR Spit. Used to enjoy watching her fly out of Filton when there was a Filton for her to fly out of :-(

Lovely set Andy. I do like that AT-19 a lot. It's not an aircraft I've seen before I don't think.

Thanks for sharing 👍🏻

Re: The UKAR politics thread

Just watching Raab get a roasting. How did he get so far up the power structure. so utterly out of his depth I personally think it's because Boris surrounded himself with Brexit Yes (Wo)men. Anyone who supported Brexit got a prominent position in the Cabinet regardless of their strengths or weaknes...

Re: Aircraft Top Speeds?

Thanks Derek. True that no one who is "in" aviation would use mph, and i can understand why they don't, but to the average Joe, it's what they understand. Which is why books, airshow commentators etc all use it (or kph of course).

(I am an average Joe btw!)

Aircraft Top Speeds?

I think I may have asked this before but hey, I can't find the thread so thought I'd ask it again. In most aircraft reference books, one number usual given is the top speed of said aircraft. For example: Typhoon = 1320mph, F-22 = 1669mph, J-10 = 1632mph (you get the idea). My question is whether the...

The scuffs are probably from putting hangers in aren't they?

Re: Big jet TV YouTube channel

The character behind the Big Jet TV Lies and Fakery page has a new outlet, Big Jet TV Members Lounge. His latest wheeze is to copy and re-stream BJTV's member's-only streams, saying he's doing this as a 'public service'. Why BJTV doesn't get a lawyer involved I don't know... Checked them out, and t...

Is the Herc the largest aircraft that can land there? I'm guessing the runway isn't very lengthy?
