Great news, but is it not strange for The Thunderbirds to do a European tour so soon after the last one. Was it 2 years ago they was a Fairford??

Thanks

Re: G-20 Meeting London LHR will be busy

Thanks for the info on where the aircraft are going, looks like it's going to be an interesting few days. Something I don't understand though? Why are the Americans using Stansted when the more secure Mildenhall is just up the road?

RAF Mil 8

A friend said to me that The RAF are to purchase some used Mil 8 helicopters. Anyone know if this is correct??

Three helicopters flew in formation over Cambridge today, 11th October. I may be wrong but they looked a bit Russian ?
