Re: BBC Planespotting live....

Hmmm, disrespect, is that is a good description of simply pointing out that someone who was paid to be part of a programme was wrong, and respect is a two way street, remember the 'get some time in' comment. Give it a rest mate, are you really arguing with a pilot about how aircraft work? Simple Qu...

Re: Patrouille de France incident (runway overrun?)

Cue CAA/MAA/ RSPCA et al knee-jerk reaction. For all future landings, Best close the M11 at Duxford, the A419 at Fairford, M25 at Heathrow & Gatwick all together! Oh, M27 at Southampton just in case lightning does strike twice? Unless of course this was an 'isolated incident' or God forbid an a...

Re: Flares at RIAT.

Agreed, i certainly loved watching them get bombed up, then sit on the pan until early evening, when i'd watch 52's and Bones heading, for some reason, north over Banbury powering for altitude. Quite a thing to watch a Bone with all its candles lit and anti cols on, in the dark going for height. yo...

there is an earlier entry on the site for a Kalitta flight into STN, it gives about 14 B747 registrations, so I would guess it could be any airframe of the aircraft listed
