Re: Fairford 13-01-18

Very nice shots - particularly the first one and thanks for sharing. I too was curious about the location you used as I've not been to Fairford other than for RIAT and so thanks for the information. One day I may make it down for a bomber deployment. One thing struck me however which somebody might ...

Re: Multiple choppers this morning - Dorking

A Chinook and two Apaches were heading east along the M25 just south of Tatsfield on the North Downs a little while ago. In the lead was what looked like an army cooperation type with D-day stripes on the fuselage (a Stinson?). The Chinook and Apaches then circled Tatsfield a couple of times and the...

Re: Apaches and Tigers

The two Apaches had Longbow radars for sure. It's not impossible that the other two were Apaches but as one of them slightly banked round it looked like it had a cockpit similar to the Tiger's.

If anybody can positively identify them then I'll happily stand corrected.

You might also try the Gatwick Aviation Museum at Charlwood near Gatwick. The late owner, Peter Vallance, had a long running battle with the local council over his collection and its alleged breach of planning laws. I think he won the battle in the end. I believe that following his death the collect...
