Re: Boris Force One?

About time we had a VIP aircraft suitably marked to shuttle our leaders around, instead of leasing other nations assets. All this nonsense about 'former military aircraft' doing the rounds is ridiculous the white tanker fleet were fully operational.

Mr Macron will be at 10 Downing Street, hence the location of the datum.
No 10, or Clarence House? Or is he visiting both?
The info issued by the CAA, upon which I based writing the ATC procedure, says Westminster 10 Downing St.
Could you supply the waypoint lat longs?

There's plenty online engagement they could be doing with schools and other organisations. Is there a RAFAT equivalent to Joe Wickes!?

The whole of the Armed Forces are key workers at all times.

Stop being a bellend, it would’ve been much easier to just answer the question instead of wasting everyone’s time moaning about it, even though it’s a totally valid question. Robin, this is QF10. https://image.jimcdn.com/app/cms/image/transf/dimension=519x10000:format=jpg/path/scb3c95bbd722dc02/ima...

Re: Is anybody happy with the Brexit white paper?

A quick question, how many weeks do MPs normally have off for their trips to the seaside? Some would say it's appropriate that they have the same 'holidays' as schoolkids -- 2 weeks for Christmas, 2 weeks for Easter & 6 weeks in the summer. ...instead of cancelling or at least suspending and st...

It’s Brexit at all costs, isn’t it. Brexit was literally run on a campaign of is “taking back control”. Now a leader we didn’t vote for, us committing a deeply *deeply* undemocratic act, to pursue a policy that the majority of people *we* elected have already voted against. You rank hypocrites, eac...

Hmmm, disrespect, is that is a good description of simply pointing out that someone who was paid to be part of a programme was wrong, and respect is a two way street, remember the 'get some time in' comment. Give it a rest mate, are you really arguing with a pilot about how aircraft work? Knowing h...

Hilarious, the only way a four engine jet could produce 2 trails is to shut 2 down! I suppose in theory you could have more than 4 from a leaky old jumbo, fuel jettison and grey water.
