Re: BA retires entire Boeing 747 fleet

Duxford turned down a Nimrod and a Hercules because they had no where to park them so all this talk of a 747 going to Duxford and its runway lengths is meaningless. Can't quite get my head round the Imperial War Museum turning down a Nimrod and a Hercules - 2 types that were, and have been in use b...

Re: Flying Legends to cease at Duxford

Reading between the lines of the IWM press release, I would say that they wanted more money flowing back to them than TFC were willing to pay. They talk of exciting changes to their own Air Show programme for next year... Also, sounds like somewhere else found Covid to be a very good reason / excuse...

Re: Flying Legends to cease at Duxford

I have a feeling this is all down to the IWM.

They have apparently been angling for a long while for all airshows to cease on the site.

A big shame - where else can the show go?

North Weald has been suggested, but is, I think a non-starter because of the closeness of the M11.

Thanks Andy,

We were in Zone A - about 6/7 rows back from the front. Still a very good view though!

Shuttleworth's 2nd Drive-in show

August 2nd saw The Shuttleworth Collection host their second drive-in airshow. The participation list was late coming out, but that didn't stop the show being a sell-out, and those in attendance were treated to a cracking display. The highlights for me were the BAE Jetstream, displayed so well by Do...

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!). This aircraft was later purchased by the RAF and registered as ZE704. https://live....

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!)

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:
