Re: What aircraft would you like to see at RIAT 2019

Actually EAV-8B but still a Harrier - strictly Harrier II Plus. Assuming you were trying to correct the previous post to yours.

Only downside I found with the 750D is that there are no 3rd party batteries for it so a second one is going to be a Canon brand.
Strange as Amazon show several. I'm not a 750D owner but I just went to Amazon and typed in "LP-E17" and voila!

Re: Machloop ban

Any incident that may be seen to have "potential to cause harm" has to be investigated fully and if that means a suspension then that is for the experts to determine. It doesn't matter whether it is the armed forces, public services or industry. I've worked for 35 years in a network company where th...

No rules have been broken by the poster, it wasn't posted on FC it was posted on Twitter and no rules on what you post other than pornography apply.
Just to be clear I was referring to the woman on Twitter but above someone said she knew the rules and was asked to remove the video.

Re: Machloop ban

I have watched the clip and seen some of the comments. It is easy to see how the pilot has broken the rules, but what "rules" have been broken by the video poster and what are they meant to cover/guard against? Serious question so no flaming please. At the moment I see it as a loss for enthusiasts a...

Re: 1969 USAF C130 Wreckage Found in Channel

Just for correctness, wasn't this a Mildenhall aircraft? I can see no reference in any of the BBC's 3 articles to Woodbridge.
However, an interesting story to which there may never be answers.
