Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

If the Lancet is declaring herd immunity is almost impossible - why the hell do we still seem to be following this policy?

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Here's a "dwad" for you. Nigel Farage Posted on Twitter today that he was the first person in his pub. On 20th June he was in the US and returned on the 21st. Taking the 21st as Day 1.... the last day of his mandatory - by law - 14 day quarantine is today. So he can go out tomorrow. He has broken th...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

I went through some statistics for some volunteering I do at my club yesterday using the latest Public Health England data - they made for some scary reading.

Re: Boris Force One?

Cant stand it and I believe the flag is the wrong way up from what I have read. It isn’t. As per my cock up on the transport command Photoshop before I was told this fact - by Sam. Flags on RAF aircraft are drawn/painted as if they are on a flagpole facing into wind... I.e. the flag is at the front...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

So lets get this straight... Boris is going to announce a new social distance measure called "One Metre Plus" Which means you will be able to go within 2 metres of someone but further than 1 metre away IF you take precautions such as a face mask. This is going to apply to Offices, Pubs and Schools f...

I’d vote Biden but it’s inevitable that Trump will get back in. For every smart American there are more that aren’t. Put it this way at Lemoore Airshow last year I sat next to a gentleman of about the same age who proceeded to spend half the day explaining to me how Trump was going to invade Europe ...

Re: President Trump

In Colorado and Wyoming (bear and cougar country) people go fishing with a forty-five openly on their hip. Age didn't seem to be a factor. Make of that what you will - my schoolteacher friend on the same birding trip was outraged, but it made sense to me. In some states in the Countryside if out du...

I think the shows produced are poor and lack any sort of knowledge, I can't understand as to why people love them so much as anyone with the tiniest of aviation backgrounds can see right through it all, and yes I am critical of him elsewhere - I believe it can only damage the hobby in some respects....

Re: Your holiday plans

I've discovered that my profession are allowed to avoid the 14 day quarantine, although I think it's still illegal to actually travel to an airport. Holidays in Spain are very expensive in July and there's still no guarantee we won't have to quarantine over there. I have a week in France and anothe...
