Re: Flying A Fastjet For 10 Hours Nonstop?

What's the answer to the obvious toilet question too? Nappies, pee bottle or one of those stadium buddies type thing has been mentioned Can’t exactly ‘lob’ the full pee-bottle out the window at 35,000ft, or however high they fly, can they? Could be a case of bomb's away...? or Chemical Warfare?

Erm, I think you’ll find McDonnell Douglas produced airplanes as well?

DC8, DC9, DC10 etc...

Or is the issue with the RC135s that will move in, making RAF Fairford like RAF Waddington as an intellig...

Mary Ellis

Sad reports coming out of the passing of Mary Ellis.

We will never see her like again.

May she rest in peace.

Thinking of heading towards Colchester today. Just between you and me - do you know of a good site?


The roundabouts by the football stadium might be a good bet, or in Tollgate, near the Sainsbury’s.

Re: 2018 FIFA World Cup

I’m gonna stick my neck out here, and say that England might be in with a chance. IF, and yes, it is a big IF, all the players turn up with their A game, then why can’t they go all the way. I have a horrible feeling though that this World Cup will become more remembered for the crowd / hooligan trou...

I believe 13:00 is the time.

Usually comes over Colchester about 12:50, joing with the BBMF nearer London. The Red's come over a few mins later, so they catch the tail of the fly-past over the Palace.

a single Hawk has just flown over Colchester - I am assuming to do a weather / cloud level check on the route.

The cloud cover here is fairly low atm.
