Nice to see RAAF and USAAC Spitfire paint jobs in the UK. Breaks up the monotony of RAF schemes.
And soon to be Russian markings on Peter Teichmann's 2nd Spit

Re: Interesting Internet

Not sure if this has been posted but the first flight of a scale model of the Flying V took place this week. Could this be the future of air travel?

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

After selling the team last month Frank Williams and his daughter Claire are leaving F1 after the weekend's Italian Grand Prix, though the team name will rename unchanged.

Re: Movies!

Not a movie but I finished watching Cobra Kai, the sequel series to the Karate Kid movies. Very well done.

Re: The UKAR Gaming Thread

If anybody has a PS4, I highly recommend Fall Guys, which is currently included with PS Plus membership. Mix between Takeshi's Castle, Wipeout and It's a Knockout.

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Be honest how many were asleep till the last few laps? up till then it was a snore fest. Then it all kicked off. Next week will have to be more stops. Agree with the snore fest. I think though if there had been no safety cars, their one stops would have been a bit later so there might not have been...

Saw them fly by as they were on route to Northolt. It was nice to see the Lancaster as I haven't seen it fly this way in ages.

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

I am looking forward to when the new rules come in and see how that affects the racing. Used to really enjoy watching F1 in the late 80's and through most of the 90s but have started to get a bit weary of it recently. Doesn't help that if I want to watch that I have to pay to do it.

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

With the Alonso news in mind what do people think will happen with Vettel for 2021. This is the current situation with lineups for next year: Unless Hamilton decides to not sign a new contract, can't see him going to Mercedes. Unlikely to go to Redbull due to Max. Mclaren, Ferrari, Renault and Racin...

I haven't really followed the SpaceX project and assume they only sent two up as that was all they needed on the ISS?
They only sent two as it was a demo/test flight.
