Re: The Mound

So that would make the name appear to be inappropriate.

Can people suggest a more appropriate name for use from now on please? :)

Re: Ripped off photo's

Personally by feeling is that applying a watermark to a photo is unlikely to dissuade someone from stealing an image unless said watermark is very prevalent, in which case the chances are that it also detracts significantly from those trying to enjoy your photos. I put high res photos on the net (no...

Re: Future of the Fairford deployment section

You've hit the nail on the head, trouble is I can't see an easy solution without people showing restraint. The few active staff can't always be online to monitor and by the time one gets online and do something, all hell can have broken loose. My personal circumstance working nights mean from 06.30...

Coningsby Update

Hey all, Having spent the week in the Coningsby area I have a couple of updates for you: 1. Currently parking is NOT possible at crash gate 1. The grass areas are currently unavailable and there is an additional (second) entrance to the base there at the moment. 2. Having had a normal day at Conings...

Re: Environment

According to the BBC the environmental footprint of the makeup and fashion industry is considerably larger than all "road and air travel" combined, and that the majority of these industries are for 50% of the people i.e. women.

Is this true? Comments please?

No deployments of TSR-2

Sadly I can confirm that just as there are no USAF B-1 deployments to Fairford at the moment, there will be no deployments of the British Aircraft Corporation TSR-2 to the base either this year. The RAF said that "they were deeply saddened that the planned deployment would not now go ahead" and that...

Lewis Hamilton sold his aircraft several months ago. Do keep up. :) What he does on track gives a great many people, including me [a life-long follower of motor racing] a great deal of pleasure, and we should take pride in the fact that he is so good at what he does. I couldn't care less what he do...

Re: Photo storage

I had a quick look at Prime and it appeared that all the photos I uploaded went into a single "pool" and that I couldn't split it by directory?
