Re: Aircraft storage question.

Fab.

So what I've learned is, FR24 tells lies and isn't worth the time and effort. Happy days.

Re: Aircraft storage question.

All of the BA aircraft from LHR to Bournemouth came straight here. None went via Glasgow. I don't mean they landed at Glasgow. Can't find any examples now, but check out this Virgin flight on Tuesday: m LHR-LHR via a turnpoint near Glasgow. Occam - I'll back you up on this, I saw a British Airways ...

Re: Germany buying new Typhoons, Super Hornets and Growlers

I saw this too Boff, an interesting development for certain should it come to fruition...

As sad as it will be to lose the Tonkas, the thought of super-bugs/growlers is happy news for me. Love F-18s... and the super-bugs are... well... bae. :love:

Just been on Sky News (yeah, I know), UK Government has received a report from SAGE (collective of scientists about emergencies such as this) that states that we should plan for social distancing to be around for up to a year.

Yes, many thanks for your updates Boff... I was out on a trip that covered Red Flag (last week) and was scheduled to take in Yuma show, El Centro show, Luke show and Lancaster Fox Field, along with an overflight of the boneyard/bus trip round it. The US quickly started to fold up on itself and the r...

Re: RIAT 2020 Wishlist

Argus - a SAAB design isn't it? I think the Swedish AF brought one to RIAT around the turn of the century if memory serves correct. A strange looking contraption on the roof I thought at the time... but then the Wedgetail caught my eye. I think the Greeks brought an Argus over in 2013 too? I remembe...
