Re: Interesting Internet

Sadly one of the pilots has left the team. I don't know why, but they certainly are not out in Greece with the others. The RAF is investigating the Red Arrows over allegations of drinking, it has emerged. Sources claim one pilot has been sent home from Greece, where the famous aerobatic display tea...

Re: Disappearing Props.

Grey, bit of a breeze, the odd very light drop of moisture but otherwise passable.

I just think Joe public will have a whinge if the final line up contains too many prop trainer aircraft in the flying display.
Joe Public wont have a whinge as Joe Public will accept what ever is there. It's just a minority of 'enthusiasts' that will have a whinge.
