Re: Antonov AN30 @ Lakenheath #2

He appears to have deleted his flickr account.

At least there's a good ending to this one. Shame though, I wanted to tear him up before he disappeared. I'll get back under my bridge now and await another reason to post!

Would a genuine member do that? Takes all sorts. I had a 'friend' do that to me on facebook a couple of years back, cropped out my watermark and then denied it!

Re: Flying Legends 2017

Unless you want them to still be hard banking at 90 degrees whilst on short finals, just to stay airfield-side, aircraft will always be approaching the runway over the M11 at that end. It's unavoidable. The pilot did the smart thing of not attempting to make it to that side. No point when there's a ...

Re: Your favourite image from 2016!

All-in-all, a bit of a crap year. This is probably my favourite, even though there are a few sunlit topsides I'd wanted for ages, that could also qualify. Not technically perfect, but hey, my favourite shots often aren't. https://c3.staticflickr.com/8/7244/27407701002_be452a791e_o.jpg

Two true-life movies tonight. Sully Adequate. Some great flying sequences, bolted onto what felt a bit hollow. Can't put my finger on why though. Hanks was decent as usual, the supporting cast were good. I don't have any real reasons as to why, but I just didn't think it was brilliant. Deepwater Hor...

Fly Navy at Old Warden for me. In particular, the Sea Vixen, and TFC beating the place up in spectacular fashion. It was great to see those aircraft away from Duxford, and the pilots looked like they were having a great time, with some precise and spirited flying. 8-point roll from the corsair anyon...

When I was building my latest PC, I got Watch Dogs 2 for free with my GTX 1070. It's an utter mess! I really enjoyed the first one, despite its failings. This one however, is just awful. The UI is cluttered and clunky, the way missions are handed out is overly confusing and totally unintuitive, the ...

I'm pretty pleased with it, and it's turned out almost exactly as I'd hoped, with the interior having just the right amount of illumination to not look like the Blackpool lights!
