The figures, for the seven days up to 26 February, reveal around 280,000 people in the community with the virus. It suggests that the number infected has fallen by about a third in the most...

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

Even the most enthusiastic Lockdowners that I know have broken the law in some way over the past year. Two in five over-80s have broken lockdown rules by meeting up with others indoors after getting vaccinated against Covid, figures suggest. Office for National Statistics polling data released toda...

Re: Headcorn Air Show

With the furlough scheme extended to September, that date would be around the start of Lockdown 4.0 then. :mask:

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

The UK's coronavirus alert level is going down to four. It means the risk of the NHS being overwhelmed in the coming weeks has fallen.

The country has been at level five - the highest - since early January.

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

See spotting in itself may not be ok, but going for a walk around an airfield or airport anywhere in England as part of excercise with a camera around your neck would be legal. I'd suggest sitting on the end of a runway with a camera and your butties wouldn't be legal. I suppose it's no different t...

Looking like the largest Airfix model you could possibly imagine, parts of a World War Two Lancaster bomber are laid-out in a hangar waiting to be assembled. But this is not a toy. The pieces of wing, fuselage, bombs, machine guns and propeller blades are all real. The famous aircraft is three year...

Re: Duxford Festival 2021

So good you said it twice.

Duxford have enough based aircraft + Ultimate Warbirds from Sywell + Old Warden and other UK based aircraft to put on a show in June. RIAT relies heavily on foreign participation. I doubt Legends will have any warbirds from the continent due to quarantine restrictions.

Interesting announcement from WHO regarding the Oxford/AZ vaccine https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56011981 Also one theory (trying to confirm sources), is that the Kent mutation came from one super-infected person last September, best source so far is here https://www.wired.co.uk/article/chronic-...

If Land Warfare is to be demolished and the airliners moved there, does it in the long term raise the possibility of new hangarage being built for them?
