Re: BA retires entire Boeing 747 fleet

Very sad indeed. I was hoping there might have been a 'pleasure' flight or two. However covid would have likely put pay to that anyway.

Re: Sunday 2 August – Drive-in Airshow (At the Movies)

Great to hear that it's another sell out. If this 2nd show is anything like the 1st then a great time will be had by all. It's really brilliant to see Shuttleworth being such trailblazers and leading the way in restarting airshows. Clearly some of the early pioneering spirit so beautifully preserved...

Perhaps worth nothing that due to limited availability, FRIAT tickets cannot be booked online.

Managed to make it down for the 2nd run today. Cloud didn't allow for a full display but didn't matter, fantastic to see them.

Do you know what the purpose of the visits are? It appeared to immediately taxi back to the end of the runway and take off. Long way to come to spend 6 minutes on the ground.

Re: The Red Arrows are moving to....

Scampton should become a dedicated live museum. Base all RAF display teams there (sadly currently that amasses Reds & BBMF), with hangarage & support for civilian operators to base themselves there too. Move everything possible from Bruntingthorpe and keep the CWJ days going. I am certain it would ...

Re: Aircraft tracking system/app - Which is best?

Many thanks Eric. Yes I'm mainly interested in the military aircraft but I'll take a look at anything out of the ordinary. There was very little showing on 360Radar today that wasn't showing on ADSB, also no extra types. Perhaps it was just a slow day!

Aircraft tracking system/app - Which is best?

Hi all. *Apologies, I feel this question will have been asked before but I couldn't find a previous topic, and anyway things may have changed since it was previous discussed...* There are various tracking systems out there for us to follow aircraft movements, but which is best? I'm trialing 360Radar...

Thanks, yeah I did consider it could be them. But it just sounded slower and heavier. Perhaps they were performing a high alpha pass for me.
