Re: President Biden

His body language suggests that he is not fully aware of his environment/context plus his mental recall is not at the required level. The USA have form for electing persons to high office where there are questions about their 'mental competence'. Although Ronnie Reagan served 2 terms and didn't go ...

Re: Aeralis Red Arrows?

tried to take a modular approach to car production and this has had limited success eg Audi/Skoda sharing a chassis on some models, powertrain, engines and the like but the shell and fit out are all different. Slight thread drift but 'limited success'? Lol! It revolutionised car production and was ...

Co-incidence that the Sentry is the picture on the 2021 Royal Air Force Calendar! I'm surprised it's not 'December' in the 2022 calendar!

It supports the G26 and G30. I might be worth having a try to see if it works - I doubt those cameras are hugely different in spec to yours.

Re: Formula One 2021

Russell already has a contract with Merc and is just driving at Williams until one of the Merc roles opens up.
