Re: NTM 2018 air to air

Some superb airmanship there to give you the images that you have captured. Great to see the mixed fighter types and the gorgeous paint schemes. It was fortunate that their were none of the RAF/FAA/AAC blandly painted ships to completely wreck some great colourful photoshoots. Thanks for sharing.......

Re: UKAR in 2017: What For The Future?

Photo threads can be variable in terms of response but while it’s good to praise those capable of taking superb images, we should all do our bit to encourage those who are starting out or whose pictures may not reach other’s high standards. When replying in a photo thread and intending to post crit...

Re: Winthorpe Airfield

No problem. On that day I believe the last ever powered a/c to depart Winthorpe airfield officially was G-TUGY, with the Venture being penultimate.

Re: Heads Up... 238 Squadron Spotters Day

43(F)

From FB
Earlier today the 43 Sqn Standard was removed from the Rotunda in the RAF College. The Standard will then be transported by members of the QCS for a formal laying-up ceremony at Stirling Castle.
