Re: A new KC-46A defect

Amazing to think they could've had the almost unqualified success of the A330 MRTT instead.

Re: The UK Airshow Review Podcast

This latest edition of the podcast gets us chatting about what it's like taking people to airshows and aviation stuff with people who aren't quite as absolutely interested in the subject as we are.

Re: Interest in watching a rocket launch?

....all I can say is a resounding HELL YES?! That sounds seriously cool, I'd be all over something like that, especially with a prominent role for the UKSA and ESA in the Perseverance mission at the moment that would make a brilliant tie in for getting kids into space engineering. It'd be a bit of a...

Re: RIAT 2021 Participation and Discussion Thread

I really liked the VAT last year. It was something different and something rather than nothing and at least fun to sit down with a few beers. Seems like a weird thing to have any kind of objection to to be honest.

On the subject of the lack of communication, we briefly chat about just that in the latest podcast episode. Has to be said, literally any communication would be nice, no matter what it is.

I also saw something last night that suggested he was a massive racist who tried to block the first black astronauts, so add that to the list I guess.

He outright called Eric Brown a fraud and a liar and said that the UK contributed nothing to the war. Hard to find respect for him, to be honest.

I'm really glad to see the memories its brought up for you - it was very cool hearing Gordon talk about Leuchars which is a show that always seemed to garner such huge praise and one I always wish I'd been able to go to.

Re: Tallboy Bomb Found & Detonated in Poland
