Re: RAF Leuchars Airshow 1982

And somewhere in the crowd is a 4 year-old me, attending his first ever airshow!

Thanks for sharing... unsurprisingly, my memories are somewhat hazy (although I do have some, at least, including being taken up in a pleasure flight over St Andrews Bay by my mum and dad).

Re: The Euro 2020 (in 2021) Thread

The old cliche about you have to take your chances at international football never rang more true than yesterday. Robertson skying it and Dykes not making his cost Scotland dearly. The "wonder goal" was something that can only happen to Scotland... Ain't it just so. Whilst it's easy, amidst such di...

48hr photo comp: The Mighty Flanker

Now, I appreciate that they have appeared in numerous comps already... twin-tails, behind the iron curtain etc etc. However, it's such an absolute humdinger of an aircraft, and so universally loved by enthusiasts, that it seems almost obscene not to have a comp specifically dedicated to the two-seve...

Of course, Scotland being Scotland, we'll still find some bizarre way to mess it all up.
Scotland to beat England, lose other 2 games and go out on goal difference?

Aye, that would be just about right.

Re: The Euro 2020 (in 2021) Thread

France for me. England have got a chance (home advantage reminiscent of that tournament success back in ye olden days). If Scotland can get out of the group they'll be very pleased with that. France clearly have the best squad... if their big players all turn up then it's hard to look past them. I'...

Yes, at least the colouring fits the region if not the Tiger theme!
Yeah, nice blue and white checks for Bavaria. I actually quite like it!
