Re: Aeralis Red Arrows?

My daughter as a case in point clamoured to see the Red Arrows. A plain grey Typhoon? Meh. Exact opposite for me almost 50 years ago, when I attended my first airshow, Battle of Britain At Home Day at Biggin Hill. Wasn't even interested in the Reds, what hooked me into wanting to fly was seeing the...

Re: Aeralis Red Arrows?

I am sure the MoD beancounters would be only too happy to be rid of the Red Arrows and the Memorial Flight. It would only be public opinion and an outcry that would prevent it.

Re: Aeralis Red Arrows?

Maybe the RAF could not but UK plc could if the Reds were used more for promoting the UK abroad

Re: Accommodation '22

There's several holiday homes at South Cerney for 900 for five days - albeit two bedrooms someone has to have the sofa. Depends on your idea of an OK price I guess

Re: Riga Aviation Museum

For anyone hoping to make a quick visit the museum is currently closed. In fact it is not there now at all as the airport is to extend the terminal and the land was required. However, after some discussion the aircraft have been moved to near a flight school on the west side of the airport. The mean...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

No point in holding an airport if no-one can get to it. It's a political solution or nothing. What I find incredible and troubling is that if, even with the Doha deal as described by above, UK politicians and it seems some Uk military leaders 'could not possibly' have seen all this coming - how qual...

I use mine as a dash cam - works fine - but there are much cheaper options unless you really want 4k for a dash cam. The downside is also that it will eat up the battery
