Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Was thinking how the new F1 season was just more of the same old, same old, but then it actually became very entertaining. The Mercs look way ahead of the pack, but if there's as many incidences as in the first race, then it might not be so bad. Loved that Norris managed to get the fastest lap point...

Re: Big jet TV YouTube channel

If he does make a mistake he is the first to say so. Is he though? From what I gather most criticism results in the person responsible being blocked or banned I guess it depends on how you go about correcting him? If you're going to be obnoxious and rant at him for his mistake, then he'd probably g...

Re: Big jet TV YouTube channel

Try Daz at Aviation in action, better photographer/videographer, better knowledge & an all round better guy I had a look at his recent Coningsby stream and found that the video was very jerky and the commentary was extremely bland. Not something that I'd particularly want to watch, whether free or ...

So it's repainted to better represent and promote the UK - but the MoD has to pay for it!
No, it's the UK taxpayer that has to pay for it, and besides, the MoD are more than capable of wasting FAR more of the publics' money than this little paint job cost!

True, but there have been at least several occasions where he has been asked to move on due to not having the right permissions for filming, or when he cut the hedge at (?) Manchester/Heathrow or wherever it was. In other words, he can get on with it if he wants, but he shouldn't be doing things to...

He's at Coningsby today streaming video of the Typhoons, which I'm actually enjoying. I don't really see the problem with him tbh; I doubt I'd ever pay to view any of his stuff, but there seems to be plenty who are happy enough to do so and that's up to them. He's got his own way of commentating whi...

For a two seater, it looks about the best that could possibly have been achieved, so good job all round. :clap:

Or you could take the view that the Vulcan would have enabled the development of a heritage facility with unrestricted runway use and good access. Lots of aeroplanes at Bruntingthorpe that would have been far more attractive alongside the Vulcan. Given that none of them fly, do they need unrestrict...

Re: Flying Sea Harriers for sale

Vulcan style - dumped by a sewage works rotting away you mean? Why single out one when there's two other Vulcans 'rotting away' as you put it. Or doesn't the fact they're also both outside count? That's probably being very generous, a fairly poor glider I would think. A brick with short stubby wing...

Re: What are UKARians watching on TV?

The Mandalorian. A series about a Mandalorian Bounty Hunter based in the Star Wars Universe, around five years after RoTJ.

Four episodes in and it's been pretty good so far; much better than those crappy 'new' Star Wars films Disney have been churning out.

Recommended. :rock:
