I don't have a printer to print a ticket at home. Does anyone know if you can show your ticket on your phone?
Never been a problem for me in the past.

Very nice Dan, second one looks like one of those cultural special artworks like appeared on the BA jets for a time.
I was thinking more "Saved by the Bell".

Re: Get on your Trike- the TriStar and RAF Tristar

The aforementioned pale-marked ZD949 and a grey one too. This concludes my collection of RAF Tristars. I've probably also got an ATA example at Mildenhall during the second Gulf War from my very earliest digital days using a 2.1MP Olympus compact. I will try and find those later. https://live.static...

Re: First Show on July 18

Oh, sorry, I didn't realise the health of me and my family in the middle of a pandemic was a decision for you to make.
Who would we then have to moan about the Snipe being flown too late in the show, or the lack of topsides, or the B-17 and Red Arrows not landing on?
Bless. :joy:

Dedicated to our North Weald locals on the board. Dan B, do you recognise the place? I haven't been for years now, I'm not sure how much its changed. Bits of it, certainly. I can't quite work out where the crowdline would have been though as you seem to be in various locations - were flying jets pa...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: F-15 Eagle

Thanks everyone for your entries. Some real quality here and it’s so tough to narrow it down to just three, but after much deliberation, here they are: In third place is Preoch’s topside of the F-15D Baz from the deployment to Waddington last year. The shot I wish I’d got from the exercise. In secon...

Re: Volga-Dnepr IL-76 returns to Stansted

I thought about going there but decided to go further out. I thought it might be very overgrown. It's a good spot for evening landings but you can't see the departures as you can off the mound so that's the downside. I haven't looked at my pics in detail yet but they look okay on the camera.

Re: Volga-Dnepr IL-76 returns to Stansted

Yeah, I was up on that 'Hilton mound' with a few others. Didn't recognise any faces though - bit of an outsider at a civvy airport! :rofl:

How did you get on from your vantage point?

Have you heard anything about an ETD for it btw?
