Re: Airports Controlled From Far Away?

I do not recall seeing this news. Whilst noting it is far away in the future, (along with flying cars and the next civil sst), where was the story?

I assume the Yak, Mig and Bouchons are to represent the historical opponents. As stated above, it looks a great event indeed.

Re: Farnborough International Airshow 2018

It is a trade show.
Trade was good.
Many locals and enthusiasts got to see and enjoy the show with a number of interesting aircraft.
A few hard-core spotters were disappointed by the 'limited' content a week after the world's leading airshow and Legends.
No one was forced to go.

Re: Farnborough International Airshow 2018

I thought the P-8 returned? Did not see the F-16s or the Spanish AV-8B today, perhaps north side? Otherwise a very broad selection, although down in numbers. There did not seem to be many people attending today either. Only moan would be that it was just too hot to be outside, (better than too wet t...

Re: RAF E-7 Wedgetails?

Happy to be corrected, but I understood that the PM just allocated all the cash for the next few years to the NHS with no growth for other departments. So, can we acquire E-7 aircraft with the existing budget and terminating the E-3 fleet? Such an announcement at Farnborough would be great though!

From elsewhere on Twitter this came across via Canada. It was in the UK in 2002/3 and appeared at several shows, albeit in a slightly different USN scheme.

Re: Was it worth it?

All getting a bit political isn't it. In my humble opinion the original question is beyond the scope of the average enthusiast (such as myself). No matter what my opinion may be, people further up the ladder have more information and based upon that, must make perhaps uncomfortable decisions. Meanwh...
