Well speaking of 'last flights', the final flight of the Victor was pretty memorable, too...!
Maybe the salmon pink machine could flip flop it's way over the fence in one more 'flight' to freedom if things get too bad. :rofl:

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Be honest how many were asleep till the last few laps? up till then it was a snore fest. Then it all kicked off. Next week will have to be more stops. I literally was snoozing until Ben Edwards woke me up on the last couple of laps, but sadly still not the result I would have liked. It's just a sha...

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Well it's probably going to be another Mercedes bore on Sunday again. :sleeping:

Maybe Mad Max or Le Berc can liven things up and take the front row out, but other than that the only hope for anything interesting happening is for it to rain.

Re: BAA retires entire Boeing 747 fleet

The BOAC and Landor jets are currently parked up next to each other at BA Maintenance site at Cardiff airport, having flown down there from LHR as couple of weeks ago, and the Negus scheme 747, is still parked up next to the fence alongside the eastern perimeter road at Heathrow.

Re: Bruntingthorpe Closure?

You make the assumption that those people who want to donate to move the VC10 would be willing to make the same donation to move the lightnings. Personally, I will make a good donation to the VC10 fund, but I wont be sorry if those lightnings never see the the light of day again and I certainly won...

Well it's a shame that the rain went around the circuit in Hungary and not directly on it. :neutral_face:

It looks like it'll be another Mercedes dominated season, but I just hope Bottas can keep producing the goods else it's going to get real boring real quick. :sleeping:

Re: F1 ( and other motorsports ) 2020

Was thinking how the new F1 season was just more of the same old, same old, but then it actually became very entertaining. The Mercs look way ahead of the pack, but if there's as many incidences as in the first race, then it might not be so bad. Loved that Norris managed to get the fastest lap point...

If he does make a mistake he is the first to say so. Is he though? From what I gather most criticism results in the person responsible being blocked or banned I guess it depends on how you go about correcting him? If you're going to be obnoxious and rant at him for his mistake, then he'd probably g...

No, it's the UK taxpayer that has to pay for it, and besides, the MoD are more than capable of wasting FAR more of the publics' money than this little paint job cost!

True, but there have been at least several occasions where he has been asked to move on due to not having the right permissions for filming, or when he cut the hedge at (?) Manchester/Heathrow or wherever it was. In other words, he can get on with it if he wants, but he shouldn't be doing things to...

For a two seater, it looks about the best that could possibly have been achieved, so good job all round. :clap:

Or you could take the view that the Vulcan would have enabled the development of a heritage facility with unrestricted runway use and good access. Lots of aeroplanes at Bruntingthorpe that would have been far more attractive alongside the Vulcan. Given that none of them fly, do they need unrestrict...

Vulcan style - dumped by a sewage works rotting away you mean? Why single out one when there's two other Vulcans 'rotting away' as you put it. Or doesn't the fact they're also both outside count? That's probably being very generous, a fairly poor glider I would think. A brick with short stubby wing...
