Re: Google Earth

I find it quite comforting in some ways that it is not always correct. For years it showed a door, red one, in a wall of my house. I haven't looked recently online but there wasn't a door there just now when I was in the room. I wonder, should I ask Alice!

Re: REDS

Another of my idle thoughts. :roll:

Baz1, if you changed the title of this thread to “RED Herrings”, we could ask the Mods to create a sticky ( in the RAF Scampton section?) which everyone could use until the move is made.

On behalf of my long late father-in-law, Tom, a Welsh WW2 navigator, who survived two tours and twice shot down, injured once, “Well done laddie “

"Made in Britain" ?

The display Typhoon could be adorned with little labels on the various bits of the aircraft. Certainly worth a snap or two at RIAT
