Re: visiting eagles??

"Could" rather than "Should" as you already know.

Anyway for Raptor22's question - up-to-the-moment coverage here:

Re: RAF Mildenhall to close. Lakenheath to get F-35 by 2020

I suggest looking at the current road and rail usage/proximity and then re-evaluate your thoughts on travel. Mildenhall is in Suffolk and the county councils have their own agendas - Norfolk and Suffolk "do different". Only time will tell. If it is to be housing on a large scale then a lot of money ...

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

I see people are still blaming the organisers for no-shows. They do ask but if countries decline or cancel it is not the organisers' fault.

Re: Can someone identify this aircraft part?

Going slightly off topic but on the Barnes Wallis theme. I had a day out at the Midland Railway a couple of years ago and one end of the line is at Hammersmith station where the sign proudly says " Birthplace of Sir Barnes Wallis" - just a piece of trivia but nice to see especially when you don't ex...

No-one said we do - I'm sure Mike posted to at least help some with a possible source. Maybe the OP uses Facebook and thus their question is answered.

Yes it is genuine - civil reg at the time was N494TW and now preserved in South Korea.
