Re: Defence Review Overview

I wonder which Typhoon airframes will be removed. Would the ones in store,being used for spares,be included ??. It will be a tight fit to have all 7 squadrons at full strength, unless there would be a reduction in compliment. Any ideas ???

Re: Defence Cuts Overview

Much like my favorite waste of Time & Money, the two UK aircraft-carriers! We hastily get rid of our highly modified Harrier-Force for small-change & scrap the Carrier, then about 11 years later we get the semblance of a single operational Carrier loaded-out with all 3 of our serviceable/willfully ...

Re: UK to increase number of nuclear weapons in SDR 2021

As for not being a World power since 1914. Did you miss WW2 and the Cold War......? I'd say during the latter with 3 different V Bombers and a whole loads beside that wasn't exactly not classed as a biggish stick. And how do you know Uncle Sam will save us in a potential nuclear exchange, were it t...

Re: First Pic of the 'Aggressor' Typhoon breaks cover.

it will be interesting to see how a Typhoon can simulate the new Russian fighters, eg the SU-35 etc. DACT uses different types of aircraft to simulate different threats. In days gone by F-5's were used to simulate Migs.

This is the DC-10 Water bomber and accompanying spotter turbo prop operating out of RAAF Richmond, NSW, last week end. Some pretty spectacular flying.
