I haven't quite got to the point where I walk through Tescos with my tadger hanging out - yet.
If you tie your todger to the ladder then that will save your potential problems at both Lakenheath and Tescos.

Re: Damage to fence near CG1

Sadly the mentality of some that I must get the numbers or a photograph is getting too rife. All down to the internet I am afraid which alerts the masses to what is around.

Re: Euromil: Military Aircraft Serials

The very first edition was called Foreign Military Air Arms to Europe and came out in May 1980. This was followed by the next three editions, by then called Euromil, in February 1982, April 1984 and September 1986. I still have my copies.

Re: 1980 C-130 call-sign - serial tie-ups req

Reference the two aircraft shown as Algerian, I would have suggested one of the three L-100's that were operated by Air Algerie but they were not delivered until 1981. Also the Algerian Air Force machines were delivered from 1982 onwards.
