Anyone who has ever worked on aircraft,both military or civil,would have experience of panel loss/delamination events!....Majority of panel losses occur due to poor ground operations or maintenance....on civil aircraft the majority of panels lost are from servicing access panels used in turnrounds e...

Re: RAF and the DDay celebrations

In my opinion,even if we didn't have the money/inclination to paint one or more aircraft in anniversary schemes,why not just have a formation of Hawks or Typhoons in a "75". Fairly easy to do,gives all the pilots etc some formation practice,and would have been a fitting tribute!

27R it is....if you plot the Reds flight chart the co-ordinates given for Heathrow are around the threshold for that runway....Poyle and Windsor co-ordinates are in line with 27R as well

There is an e-mail circulating at LHR which basically says that ops there will be suspended for approx 10-15 mins whilst the larger participants and formations pass by!.
