Re: Big jet TV YouTube channel

Exactly! The elitism and petty jealousies here and elsewhere are frankly embarrassing. God forbid that a newcomer to the hobby comes here and posts something, a photo, a video etc, and makes a mistake. They would be dismissed and roundly criticised by some on this forum.

I watched the recent B747 Virgin Manchester video and he mentioned he was going to RAF CGY the day after. He mentioned he was going to CGY to see the Red Arrows (on which they are based there), F-35s and RAF Transport planes! What an idiot! I understand he knows more about Civilian stuff, if that is...

Methinks the cad might be getting a salute tomorrow, unless they are off somewhere a tad further afield?
