Re: RIAT Arrivals... LIVE! 2017

Driving down the A420 near oxford at about 1 thinking how unfortunate it was I can't make it to RIAT this year when what pops out from behind the trees right in front of me? Just the IL-76 and both flanker in a banked topside turn at about 500ft :yahoo:

Re: Mildenhall CV22's

SOG doesn't fly on weekends ...

A CV-22 has been up every afternoon this week so far, so it seems like you should see them if you went on a weekday at the moment.

Shuttleworth Evening Air Display 06/07/2013

Spent a very enjoyable evening at Shuttleworth yesterday for their evening air display. The weather was perfect and the flying superb. Didn't intend to take many photos but I couldn't resist with a few items. Just a few to start with, might put a few more on later. Sea Hurricane taking off at start ...

Re: Ospreys at Mildenhall at last

I believe these two are new builds (SLightly worrying considering how many attempts they had to get over the pond!). Given they are SOG birds I think the markings they are in now will be all they wear.

Re: Which uni?

As others have said you really need to find a university in a location that she is comfortable living in on a day to day basis (yes you need a good social scene, but she needs to be happy with the other aspects of life in that location as you don't spend the whole time partying!). As I am studying M...

If it is not coming from the east end, it would come from the west end (famous for musicals).
Is there a west end musical that can be linked into the other music clues?

Re: Under the waves at Sharm el-Sheikh

Off to the Great Barrier Reef in July and really want to get some photos anywhere near the quality of yours! Can you give a bit more info about this 'Aqua bag' you used?

Octopus and the shoal of tangs feeding are the best two for me!

Re: "Living with Lions" - asking for trouble?

Shoal(?) of whales, dolphins The correct terminology here would be pod. Shoal or school is used in context of fish. School is very much the correct collective noun for a group of whales, although scientifically herd or pod is much more well recognised. The following can also be used but are much le...

Well that France v Wales game was dreadful! Wales were clearly the better team but neither really played. Defences were good but both teams were fairly one dimensional in attack so they could predict exactly where to defend. :facepalm:

Off to a cracking start today with two great games! Thought Wales looked very poor for the first 50 minutes and despite coming back strongly for the last 30 still managed to butcher a few very promising situations. Wasn't until the game opened up a lot that they started to play and looked like Irela...
