Re: Dunsfold sold?

I worked at Dunsfold for 3 years and this story has been doing the rounds since at least 2006, doubtful it will ever happen. If you know the area you will be aware that the local roads and infrastructure could not handle hundreds of homes and the hundreds more cars that would go with those homes. Th...

Re: Republic of Korean Navy visits London - 9/10 Sep 2013

I am working at DSEI all week and toured both Korean ships today for my company and can confirm there are no helos on either ship!

As far as I know the are no helos on any of the capable ships berthed at Excel although the is an RN Merlin present at the car park end of the centre.

Cheers

Re: Apaches

Could well be the same pair that flew over Lightwater in Surrey about 21.15 following the M3 towards London?

Re: Hurricane?

The museum you are referring to is in Jvyskyla and it is one of the best museums I have visited at possibly the quietest airport I have ever flown from. The Blenheim is there although the P-39 Airacobra in Soviet markings was not there when I visited, sadly. They have one of the few complete Brewste...

Re: LHR Myrtle Avenue on BBC website

It starts with writing numbers and letters in a pad and ends with wearing flight suits with patches (or khaki coloured gear) at airshows. I will let others fill in the bits inbetween.

USAF Blackhawk and a (looked like) German Navy Lynx just circled over Lightwater in Surrey before heading back of up the M3 towards London!

Any idea why and the IDs would be good.
