Re: Another Wattisham round up.

Had loads of Apaches down this way of late( Essex).

Think the lack of Civvie aircraft that normally own the busy skies above us had helped.

Re: Russian An-24 over UK today

On another note,
Did anyone see the AN 124 that went into Heathrow Saturday?

ADSB Showed it as UR-82029.

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

rumours doing the rounds that Merc may be pulling out of F1 as a works team and that the team may be bought out by Aston Martin. that could be interesting, but also a sign maybe that the 2021 rules mean a shakeup that would make them no longer top of the pile? Looks like Racing point will be called...

Re: RIAT Arrivals... LIVE! 2019

Well, I’d love to update, but these past few hours, notwithstanding the Turks above, we’ve had incredibly little down West. It’s turning into one of my most frustrating days here. The Reds are currently practicing (which I didn’t think they needed to do, but there we are). I suspect its a PR thing ...

Re: Royal Navy International Air Day 2019

Would people really say it’s a bad show because 2 Static Hornets have cancelled and a Herc has gone from Demo to Flypast.???
Yeovilton offers a different kind of show What with the Flares and Demo at the end ,
I would like another fast jet to be added to the flying but it’s still a great show.

Re: Royal Navy International Air Day 2019

1 more FJ Like an F18 would make it Brilliant IMO.

I kind of always assumed the French Rafales would be there but still an impressive line up.

Re: Lakenheath D Day 75th Scheme

Regarding the Tornado specials

If they had put IXsqn on one side and 31sqn on the other of the Camo you probably would not have got the other 2 individual specials.

The Camo represents all the sqns that flew the GR.
