Re: What do the Red Arrows do this year?

It does not matter what they are doing, display flying, winter bulid up keeping current etc etc, the most important thing for them and us is to not catch this awfull thing that is happening and survive to fly again, I dont think it has been said openly, but we are at war. A war that is very differen...

Re: Thunder City Aircraft

There is or was a photo on fb this morning of Thundercity, the building has apparently been sold and all the aircraft are now stored outdoors. However, I have no idea how old the photos are. :sad:

Found it

Re: British Phantom Aviation Group (Official Topic)

I have also just flicked quickly through a few books and most of the photos of the F-4J(UK) {never wasPhantom F.3} and most are either clean or just have the centreline tank. It never was F-4J(UK) either. It was just F-4J. No, it was simply.......a Tiger! As for the wing tanks, 360 had them on at m...

Re: Govenment survival pack for everyone.

And all those important documents are pdf’d onto a portable hard drive. No good saving them to the ‘cloud’ because if it’s ‘another event’ and the interweb goes down, you’re stuffed as you can’t access the documents. Same if its the end of society as we know it, documents on a hard drive are no goo...

Re: Mark Hanna

As a gobsmacked teenager (at the time) I'm very proud to admit that Mr Hanna was the first ever pilot at Duxford that I spoke to and got a very personal tour around a P-40. 15 minutes that I will treasure forever. A true legend of his time, and an inspiration to many.

Re: F-117 in Syria?

but why keep it a secret that the aircraft remain / are back in active service? What better way to hide something that to have a shadow of doubt that its about? or in this case its not about? If everyone thinks its not about, then nobody looks for it, if however theres sightings of say a single one...

Re: F-117 in Syria?

Its entirely possible, easy enough to drag four over to Saudi or some other place out of the way. Are they small enough to fit inside a C-5 if the wings are removed?

1000 hours in military aircraft, not the same as 1000 hours on type.

Reading both bio's and the original release, it would seem that Kotnik is not ready for her own command, its happened before and it will happen again.

Re: Enthusiast Photography Events Discussion

Must admit I've done a couple of these things, the Lightnings as Brunty and JJ at East Kirkby, both years ago, both were the first events of the type, both were very good indeed, well organised and well priced. Unfortunately greed has taken over, and all of these events (if thats what they are) are ...

Agreed all seems to be smoke and mirrors. Airliner landed with some form of plague perhaps? Ebola, maybe? Perhaps its just some silly teenager getting their rocks off and having a laugh?

Keep on badgering the publishing people, they are always going to say what they have said, dont take no for an answer! keep on writing too, dont stop at just the one. Bear in mind that it took the Harry Potter woman 17 years to get her first book published!
