Re: Is "Jet Zero" on the way?

Apparently more than a few people have made the weird assumption that it's a re-engined Spitfire... I think you need to place the word 'w...

Time warp?!

Is it me, or have we lost a year on UKAR somehow?

Re: 48hr Photo Comp: A-10

Y'know what, I have never really noticed how off centre the nose wheel is - is that simply to counter balance the off centre gun? And come to think of it, how come the gun is off centre anyway (maybe it's simply to counter balance the off centre nose wheel?)? I know a lot of modern jets have just on...

Of course the team themselves didn’t say this but the pilot has said this. Take this with what you will but it now seems unlikely
I would imagine the pilot probably considers him/herself to be somewhat integral to 'the team' though :lol:

Hello! Where do you see in all this a new step into space? Has he brought you any benefit? Just a rich dreamer indulges. Why not discuss the prospects of new private space companies?

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

Fairford and Legends entries confirmed but “TBD” I would guess it will be the F-16, and maybe the HF, just because last show the plan didn't work as planned, like we had with the F-22 in the past (I try to mention a try again), and of course the F-16 is already available in Europe from either Spang...

indeed. would also love to see an F104 starfighter flying. i hear there is one flying in norway. would be brilliant to see that, even if its just flyovers There is a flying example based in Norway but I believe the ejector seat is currently broken, so it won't be flying anywhere until that's fixed ...

Don't panic about those dizzy heights, Chris - Spurs will be below Liverpool at the end of the season - I think you might finish 2nd. It'll be close - to be honest though Arsenal look a spent force. A change of manager must be around the corner, surely? we've been a spent force for a number of year...
