Re: Social Distance Spotting

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

The “problem” is that 5G uses a broad spectrum of bandwidth, including Microwaves. Anyway those 5G conspiracy nutters are missing a trick. Instead of setting fire to 5G masts they should be catching seagulls and rats and cooking them in the microwaves they are so scared of, in microwave ovens. Then...

Re: Will air shows be cancelled because of coronavirus

Worldwide panic created by nothing more then the media and yes sadly the hysteria will probably lead to the cancellation of lots of summer events, including airshows... Total WORLDWIDE Coronavirus deaths = approx. 3,000 UK winter flu deaths every winter = approx. 8,000 WORLD - Get a grip and STOP Pa...

Re: Trees or aircraft?

Trees all the way. What seems to be getting lost with these "replacement trees", is the shear number of years they take to mature (even if they treated with care). If you are chopping down 300 mature trees that are all over 100 years old, it will take another 30,000 (that's thirty-thousand...

Re: German Typhoons beat USAF F-35s in WVR combat

As others have implied, the F-35 is a high wing loading, high induced drag airframe so if you get in a 1 vs 1 turning fight, it's going to have a hard time, that's physics. But... multiple aircraft, data fusion and off boresight air-to-air missiles? The days of Baron von Richthofen are long gone. N...

I'm led to believe the U-2s are the start of the permanent stationing at Fairford.. Where does this info come from? Not heard that U2s will be permanently stationed there. Various FC posts. Many suggested that this was the beginning of the detachment but, that's obviously not correct, my apologies....
