Re: President Trump

Did Biden just make the blunder that will cost him the election? During his virtual rally he appears to still think 'George' is president until his wife prompts him. As Obama says, never underestimate Joe's ability to f*** things up. Of course, he still has the postal votes in the bag already but T...

Re: President Trump

We don't often see liberals inherit a poor economy so this will be a real test for the theory. ... You say you're putting faith in the American people. That suggests you think you'll benefit in some way. I'm curious how. Obama and Biden took it on just after the last financial crash. The US economy...

Re: President Trump

Trump didn't have any new ideas or policies. In effect he was saying vote for me and you'll get more of the same. But that's precisely the problem he's got, isn't it? More of the same isn't cutting the mustard; he's losing in the polls, traditional republican voters are leaving him and he's got not...

Re: President Trump

I don’t think that matters to Trump devotees. The entire election is sort of pointless, in a way. Agreed, but in the context of this debate, we're talking amongst ourselves on this forum. I don't see how someone with no policy, nor the ability to land any blows to his opponent, could ever be deemed...

Re: President Trump

Elaborate then. What are Trump's goals for a second term? He's running the exact same campaign he was four years ago - "MAGA". There's no substance, and if he's still campaigning on building walls, then his first term was a failure, no? He's been promising a new health plan for months. It's always "...

Re: President Trump

Second debate. Trump win. Biden was stuttering and seemed incoherent at times. Didn't handle the questions about family corruption well either. OK, so I've watched this debate in full now and I don't really see how anyone could come to the conclusion that Trump comes out better? He lost his cool se...

Is it fair to say this is the highest quality one we've had? I'd say there's at least 12 photographs that could easily win this.
Yeah, I’m having a very difficult time trying to judge this one.

I think I’ve narrowed it down to 18 at the moment! 🤣

Unless plans have changed, it's just the north east corner of the airfield.

It occupies land around the exit gate that was used for...

Nice varied set Shaun, love the pairs approach.

How far up the private track were you for that shot of 541 taxiing to the hold? I wasn't far from the gate and I was still more or less head-on.
