Re: US presidential election 2020

I suppose the leftists automatically vote Dem even though Joe Biden is clearly past it . Imagine him being woken up at 3 am to be told N Korea has launched a missile at the West Coast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_wlQZ5N_2k The Dems are cruel in putting him forward as candidate but lets see who...

A bit of extra realism needed . Park the car a mile from your TV get the missus to search your bag on the way in and charge you a fiver for an ice cream.

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

Another thing to speculate on is the consequence of the lock down. Due to 50% of the world population being in lock down and unable to pursue their normal daily activity, there is the potential to see a spike in new arrivals in December / January. This is an experiment on a global scale. That will ...

Re: Will air shows be cancelled because of coronavirus

The insurance companies would be more than sad they might not pay up . RIAT might just be lucky if the peak is in mid May and the downward slope is steep. The ticket sales must be very slow now and will stop when things get really bad so they would have to reinstate sales on the gate to get a decent...

Re: Will air shows be cancelled because of coronavirus

The show organisers are in a difficult position with this issue, they will be committing big money any time now for services and equipment, so I think cancellations will be announced soon . I worry that if RIAT misses a year or two it may go the way of Air Fete.

I remember talking to a reliable old chap at Woodford who said in the mid 60s they seriously considered the Trident as an MPA. The RAF input was they wanted 4 engines.
