Factually and historically Even without the PCness there is no argument against either. Just take a ride through history. White men are ev...

Aside from padding out seaside guff, will they really be THAT missed? Yes. How so, given that there are very few interesting shows that would book them at that time of year? Why does it have to be a show that books them?? They are THE main attraction at the annual Cromer Carnival in North Norfolk i...

Re: Incident at Florennes.

If any of you know the layout of the airfield and its hangars/flightlines, then you will know that this has not been caused by "servicing an aircraft with a live gun in a hangar" as no aircarft are parked in front of the hangars. Therefore, how could FA-128 have been destroyed on the fligh...

Re: RAF roundel query

A roundel is supposed to identify the operating nation of an aircraft, from a distance. Combat, trainer, transport or other role is irrelevant. The current two-tone grey on the Dave goes against international conventions as has blurred the lines somewhat as you can not distinguish certain nations an...

Out of interest, is the 717 the safest US-built jet airliner ever?


And if you care to do any research you will find that Boeing used 717 as the airframe model number for all C-135 production :whistle:

Anyone got an idea of roughly when as "late summer" is pretty ambiguous. Not sure if I should abandon my plans to see the F-16s and hold out for these instead - no great fan of either type, but at least they're something new/different. Go and see the F-16s, its going to be a very boring h...
