blimey, your not a member of the LMA are you? Well, phreakf4 may not be a member of the LMA but I am so I wonder why you appear to treat the organisation with such derision? As a "very experienced" model pilot (whatever that means) who also has significant full sized flying hours I regard...

Re: Large-scale model Red Arrows Hawks at Blackbushe

Mostly what you say is true, but with FPV (First Person View) now, it makes something like formation flying with a video camera easy. Now Im not saying that steve and matt bishop should use it at a public display with ££££'s worth of jets, but it would actually be fairly easy to do.

30 screws is a lot, and really isnt acceptable....however, if the daily mail is correct, it says that is only one third of the screws from that panel...its really no safety issue, and definately doesnt deserve such a hyped up media response. believe me, far worse things have happened, and in this co...

Re: 4 Extra 300's landed at Southend

the plan was to land for fuel, and see what the weather does, and if bad, stay the night. I take it from the sighting that they indeed continued on their journey
