Re: Aviation- On This Day

Looking back over the years the 5th July has been busy with a few long drives around the country, but the occasion that made my old ticker skip a beat was one evening three years ago today when the wife, dog and I came across this on the moors very close to home. https://live.staticflickr.com/4235/3...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

I tried this earlier, but somehow lost the lot when I tried to edit and add another 29th June. 29th June 2018 I popped up to Plymouth Hoe to try and catch the advertised Helicopters arriving for Armed Forces Day: https://live.staticflickr.com/1787/43063980362_5e5356c8d2_b.jpg https://live.staticflic...

Re: Boris Force One?

Apart from the yellow United Kingdom I think it looks very nice. If the country wasn't bankrupt it would be nice to see the entire fleet in these colours.
I'm a fan of the new Shadow scheme as well.
All we need now is a white/light aircraft grey P8.

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Two years ago today in Cornwall the weather was rather similar to today, hot and sunny. It turned out to be a bit of a 'Navy Day' with a couple of catches during a brief stop at Newquay Airport and although I didn't realise it at the time, my penultimate 'Bagger' a bit further down the Coast. https:...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

This was a regular sight around Cornwall in 2018 but sadly it has been stuck in the hangar at Newquay for more than a year. On the 21st June 2018 my wife and I were walking the dog at the disused airfield at Davidstow when this turned up. I think it was my first trip out after a week in hospital so ...

New Zealand might the only place worth going.
I'm sure they'd love more Brits importing the virus.
The recent news from there is a perfect example of why any person with an ounce of sense shouldn't even be contemplating an overseas holiday at the moment.

18th June 1989. 31 years ago today I was at Biggin Hill. Always seemed to coincide with the London/Brighton cycle ride making a normal half hour drive to Biggin on a Sunday morning take a lot longer. https://live.staticflickr.com/2814/12597791985_0c669973c2_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/7325/1...

6th June 2018, I'd just finished my volunteering stint at CAHC at Newquay Airport and caught these on my way home. The Hawk back seater was a RAF photographer, they'd popped in for fuel before going up the meet the first UK F-35s on their delivery flight from the USA. The OTT pic was taken from my b...

Mildenhall 25th May 1997. From memory a good week, we'd just seen Supertramp in concert, our kids had started Half Term and we were off to Cornwall the following day to stay with the parents, while down there I found out Exercise Brilliant Foil was underway at RAF St Mawgan. https://live.staticflick...
