Re: Get on your Trike- the TriStar and RAF Tristar

These were taken by my Dad at either Heathrow or Gatwick Airport during August / September 1981 (I would have been 4 1/2 so probably a little early for me to have been able to see over the side of the old car park!).

Re: The FR24/PlanePlotter Thread

Just saw what looked like 4 contrails heading over Colchester - anyone know what they were / are?

They were high up - and I was driving at the time (hence the question!)

Thanks

Re: Your favourite image from 2019

I've chosen this one, of one of my favourite aircraft types - the Dakota / DC-3. Taken at the Daks over Duxford event, which even though it failed to live up to all the hype, and had many, many documented problems will still live long in the memory banks... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/480377...

Norfolk, which is the neighbouring county to Suffolk.

Depending on where in the UK the original poster lives, parts of Norfolk could be a lot closer to Lakenheath / Mildenhall :smile:

It wasn’t moving as such, but was in the process of a high power run, so there was movement in the airframe.

Reikan FoCal Software

Morning,

Has anyone purchased Reikan FoCal AF Micro Adjustment software, or have any experience of using it?

I'm thinking of buying it, but want a "real world" review to go by!!
