Re: Possible format for RIAT2021

The stats aren’t that clear. The 1,000 includes both flu and pneumonia plus as the ONS point out, a death from Covid can be recorded as both a Covid death and a Pneumonia death causing double counting. This isn’t just about the death rate it’s about the number catching the virus and needing hospital...

Hunting Eagles and Buzzards

Hi All, Last week I was able to spend a day at RAF Lakenheath on a very busy perimeter fence in good weather. Here's a few shots from the days events.

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

In theory chlorine in the water should kill any waterborne Covid.

They will have to limit the numbers using the pool though. The pinch points at risk are going to be the slides and the changing rooms. The latter will need constant cleaning.

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

A truly flexible work place will allow both working in an office and working from home. Each suits different people and there is no one-size-fits-all option for an employer. The way we work is changing for good and no politician should be forcing everyone to go back to the office. The property marke...

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator Returns

It's really good fun, there are a few fairly obvious bugs (can't speed up time and in vertical mode in the TBM the weather radar scale doesn't change from +/- 60,000ft) but I'm sure they will be fixed.

Re: Yf-23

Possibly, in 2010 when I got up close to the second prototype (801), the nose wheel door says “Spider”. http://evansaviography.co.uk/gallery/2010/zemperini/19.jpg Images of the first prototype post restoration show it as being on display at Wright-Pat with “Gray Ghost” still written on the door.

Re: Yf-23

The one at Torrance/Hawthorne can be photographed, if you ask the body shop across the road, more often then not they let you use their fire escape stairs to get above them.

It is parked with the YF-17 prototype and a very nice F-14.

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

The government tonight decided to change the methodology for declaring Covid deaths statistics.... A death will now only be included in the statistics if it is within 28 days of a positive test. Therefore not counting and removing from the current statistics anyone who dies outside that date that ha...

Re: Annual Leave on the East Coast - July 2020

Thanks,

12Sqn will eventually be both a QRA and an Aggressor squadron.

However for now its a joint squadron with Oman and is training its pilots ready for taking delivery of its own Typhoons. Hence the UK and Omani flags on the squadron badge.

How often recently has something been reported in the press, the government denied it then a few days later announced it?

Hi guys, Last month I spent a few days travelling around the East Coast, sods law Coningsby were night flying but I certainly had a good time and got some much needed relaxation.
