Re: Shackleton MR3 WR985

Not seen 985 for a number of years, but from these it looks like a lot of hard work and money will be required to get it anything like. Is that the remains of a Meteor T.7 in the second photograph Cole? Nice Spot! It too is in a sorry state, most of the wing and skin of the aircraft was in a skip. ...

Not really, a new aircraft was built up from (mainly ex-Iraqi) parts using the paperwork and identity of the original WG655. The parts from the wreckage of WG655 have been dispersed to various projects, and some substantial bits are still in storage with Sanders at Ione.
That was quick

Current List of Airworthy Classic Aircraft in the UK

I wanted to see a list of what classic aircraft we had in the uk, I didn't find one, so im going to (try) make one. Thought this may be a good idea? This will be the list of currently airworthy aircraft, not under restoration to airworthy. If anyone has any good idea on how to catagorise the list le...

Re: Edward Colston statue removal,your views.

No matter what the context of the statue, pulling a statue down, dragging it half a mile and throwing it in a harbour is a crime and isn't a good way to change the preception of a race that some people have. if anything its making it worse..

Re: Social Distance Spotting

Well Boris says we should all go back to work if you can avoid using public transport, so assuming most bases are out of the way and most of us use cars, why don't you all head off back to work? Because some of us also have days off? There might even be retired people on here... Hmm. I don't think ...
