Re: Invasion stripes ?

Rather fetching unit history/D-day combo for this CT ANG Herc. You may recall an A-10 similarly turned out before they went to the airlift mission.

Re: Best of British - 12th May

A typically enjoyable start to the season at OW - a place where you can just step effortlessly back into the groove with no major dramas; even the M1 and the weather played ball, in the main...

Re: 1993 Mig 29 Crash Question

Both a RAF Puma and Wessex scrambled themselves from the static to assist, for which, if I recall correctly, the crews were chastised as they weren't tasked to do so. The Puma was a standard camo machine. The rather prophetically call-signed "fireball" chopper that year was a RN Sea King H...

They were hidden away on the Eastern side of the airfield and didn't fly during the Spottersday. Not sure they've done much flying at all throughout the Ex. All shot from the road.

A real shame to read this.

When Cosford mentioned ‘you won’t have to imagine soon’ with regards to International participation, it could be as mundane as a static NH-90 and Baby Blue, so wouldn’t get hopes up. Last year though regardless of how poor the show was, I thought the crowd line was atrocious. Crammed in between hot...
