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

Further proof that the supposed "strictest travel bans in the world" aren't and have failed again. Right at the start the reason for the initial virus taking hold so quickly was the multiple entry points and number of people seeding the illness around the country - just the same as the introduction ...

Re: The UKAR politics thread

So I think you’re wrong on that. Probably (and you often do!) :innocent: I was just extrapolating that graph along the y axis of the labour peak and it looks like an 18% Labour drop, a 25% Cons drop and 45% LD rise (all approximate) and it was only 52% turnout. Chris - Sir Ed has even less charisma...

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

Tommy, I read a week or two ago that many who were initially hesitant had now taken up the jab. However I don't think it's as simple as a definitive figure because it appears that it varies significantly between different geographical areas, ethnic groups and age groups. Hence the programmes by the ...

The Italian's record at the moment is bonkers though.

I think, it that type of constituency, that the LDs and Labour are more likely to take votes off each other, but time will tell.

Re: The UKAR politics thread

Interesting result but mid-term, Labour go from 20% to about 1% and it's a protest against HS2.
No doubt ItR would be saying a certain JC would have won the seat!

Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 24-25 July

As Duxford have tried to reduce parking and traffic around the site I would expect the Cambridge park and ride to run as usual; probably the bus from Royston as well. I'll ask tomorrow.

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

Time will tell but the symptoms being shown by patients with the Delta variant seem to be shifting to more cold like reactions, sneezes, sore, throats and so on. Early on there was a discussion that a virus would develop to become more spreadable but less deadly (so it continued to have a host) hope...

Duxford would not have 60,000 per day; nearer 15,000 to 20,000 on a normal airshow day but I understand your point.

The fact Boris can't get his dates right (He said June 29th then 19th?) just shows how out of his depth the buffoon is.

As said, when did any country let alone Turkey offer up an F-4 routine? And we're just looking at frontline fighters not display teams, terribly sorry to disappoint you! Cheer up though, it's Friday!
I think the last F-4 display I saw was the Luftwaffe one at Waddington in 2002.

Bad news - Prof Neil Ferguson calculates the Delta variant is 60% more transmissible than previous ones.
Good news - Gove's isolating.

You missed the KC-10 and P-3 and I don’t think there are any Mirage 3/5 still in service.
Happy days.
Ps just spotted a DC-3, bound to be a Dak in the air somewhere still.
Pps Iranian tomcats still about too.

Re: Cairo, Egypt, July 1980. Taken from my Taron IL-62.

Always interesting to see. That line of Hercs and AN-12s seem to be in the same place as when I flew in 10 years later. I also got a surreptitious picture of the presidential 707 as we were refuelling.

Re: Duxford Airshows 2021

Very disappointing though that so many did not turn up. Perhaps sooner rather than later, Duxford could announce an arival time limit for members to arrive by on the day and if you do not arrive by a certain time, your ticket will be resold at the gate. How would you deal with people that are stuck...
