Phil had one on a Northolt night shoot some years ago - when was that?
2013 I do believe was when it appeared at Northolt. The Sabreliner has actually been to the UK earlier this year, made a visit to Boscombe Down in April

Re: Sweden's Pocket Rocket at Edinburgh

It's certainly a characteristic little thing, especially with the bright yellow smiley face on the tail of the aircraft. It'll certainly be a shame if the aircraft isn't taken on by the Historic Flight, or at least placed on display at a museum.

Sweden's Pocket Rocket at Edinburgh

A surprise arrival at Edinburgh Airport yesterday was this Swedish Air Force Rockwell Sabreliner Tp86. Now the only one flying with the Swedish Air Force, it is also the only airworthy Sabreliner to based anywhere outside of North or South America. Sadly I missed its arrival, but was great to hear t...

Cleethorpes Beaufighter Wreckage

Well it looks like the Beaufighter wreckage that was discovered on the sands at Cleethorpes didn't last long (figuratively speaking). However, this article doesn't make it particularly clear if they moved the bomb away from the wreckage. https://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/news/grimsby-news/royal-nav...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

For some reason 18th May has always seen me get up to something aviation related. 2017 resulted in a visit to the de Havilland Museum at London Colney. Will definitely have to make a return visit with the new hangar now being open. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49910023486_b62508c2d8_o.jpg Roy...

Arguably the finest aircraft ever conceived by de Havilland (although granted I am incredibly biased).

Re: 48hr Photo Comp: Helicopter Gunships

Most people take a chair with them to an airshow, some even go to the extent of using ladders to get a better vantage point. This lad combined the two and is clearly having a jolly good time atop his Hind (available to purchase in all good hardware stores). https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/498976...

Re: 48hr Photo Comp: Best aerobatic/stunt performer.

Personally, one of the best solo aerobatic displays has to be the Equipe de Voltige de l'Armée de l'Air. In the hands of Victor Lalloue, the unlimited aerobatics routine he performed in his Extra 330SC at the Paris-Villaroche Air Legend in 2019 was spectacular. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49...

On this day back in 2015, with weather very similar to what's currently being enjoyed in the UK. Arriving into Bournemouth during the last light of the day was this US Navy C-40A Clipper. Annoyingly the aircraft arrived later than estimated, a crying shame with the evening weather being so sunny! ht...
