Re: Warplane Workshop Series 2

The issue with that particular aircraft is that not much was being done on it during the timespan of the filming, for various reasons.

Re: Cosford Airshow 2024 - 9th June 2024

It wouldn’t be great, bearing in mind the layout at Cosford (a relatively short public crowdline and dense area behind it) only a relatively few at the front would be able to see it.

Re: Interesting Internet

There is a precedent for this, as they named the F-16 ‘Jastrząb’ (Goshawk) and M.346 ‘Bielik’ (white-tailed eagle) in Polish service.

I wonder what the Polish is for ‘slug’?

Re: RIAT 2024 - discuss most things thread

According to stagger in the La Ferté-Alais thread, the French Navy have supposedly officially confirmed they'll not be supporting any airshows domestic or overseas (they're not even attending NTM). That sucks. (I also should be a bit more cautious posting this info here too as I know this is how Ch...

Never heard of a PC-6 display before and that wouldn’t be very exciting either.

Re: Antidotum Air Show Leszno 2024 (21-22.06.24)

I still dont understand why the Polish Air Force is so reluctant to showcase their sovet-era aircraft at airshows, especially considering that they will be retired soon. If last year’s Radom airshow is anything to go by, they are sending a very clear message to Russia, regarding both aircraft and m...
