Only our ones, no reason why others can't send theirs over!
Don't think the QinetiQ new G-ETPx registrations carry the roundel or Royal Air Force titling. QinetiQ is a totally civil company quoted on the Stock Exchange (FTSE 250). It was part of DERA, but was privatised in 2001. Therefore the aircraft are purely civvy. So, under forum rules, not allowed. In...
More to the point, why should they, it's their land. And, if by chance they were persuaded to and it was to be temporarily converted into car parking, what state would it be left in? The areas around it are being left in a right state, with rubbish everywhere, so it's fair to say that would happen t...

Surely if the wind has any easterly component at all it will be on 06? That's pretty much how it works everywhere else, especially if there's some strength to the wind.
The F-22 was designed to be an interceptor fighter from the offset, and to do that job and only that job. The F-35 isn't so no contest!

From a 2017 article The first Crowsnest kit is due to be delivered in October 2018 and fitted to an operational aircraft by June 2019. Initial Operating capability for the ASaC Merlins will be in 2020, although this is likely to consist of just 2 or 3 aircraft. Effectively there will be an approxima...
why's that odd? It's the same for everyone, there's no singling out of 'mere mortals' as you put it. You join, post 5 times, you get access its as simple as that. There were very good reasons why that was put in place which I'm sure the moderation team would gladly share with you if you ask them. :t...

Re: Raising money to help Lincolnshire Aviation restore the Lancaster NX611 so it can return to flight
I don't think you'll find the BoBMF come free! From their website: Charges Displays conducted by RAF aircraft attract display and insurance charges. In addition, organisers are responsible for any costs that would not have been incurred but for the asset’s participation, such as transport between ac...
