NAS Fallon - Sept 2013

Well I was in the area for Reno Air races so figured it would be rude not to try for a base visit, one phone call before I left the UK job sorted, all I can say is what a superb day out with a massive thanks to the personnel on base for being so accommodating, Top Gun side of things use to be based ...

Nikon 300mm f2.8 VR + Nikon 1/7 convertor

Having stewed on this for a while have decided to part company, only reason is that I only use the 200-400 F4 now and this lens now sits idle. Lens is in A1 working condition, and excellent condition, I'm very anal about looking after my kit, comes with lens cover and Nikon carry case, glass is free...

Re: RIAT 2013

I have to disagree about the RAF Typhoon - I thought it was great, way better than the Italian one. It was very fast paced and showed off some great manoeuvres - I feel like some on here will bash it no matter what. Interesting vieiw that as I thought the Italian one was awesome both on Friday and ...

Re: Boeing 777 "Crash landing" at San Francisco

I think all the comments by media that the F/O only had 43 hours is a tad unfair, everyones got to have a starting point, thats what the Captains there for to over see and make sure all is correct, so if its pilot error as seems to be the case then surely buck stops with the Captain, not good for al...

Turbine Saudi R/C Typhoon at Wroughton

Fab day out with the Typhoon, now got cockpit and pilot installed, starting to get use to how it flies, still scares the crap out of me though, landings are relatively easy, only damage yesterday my legs, kept forgetting not to stand behind when wearing shorts as 600 degrees of jet exhaust hurts, st...

Re: RIAT 2013

Well Im just back from Volkel, a show where the emphasis was solely on the aircraft - it was an AIR show, not a bouncy castle, fairground, toy for boy, or concert stage in sight. And guess what, it was packed, I mean really packed, one of the biggest airshow crowds Ive seen in years. Totally agree ...
