Re: RIAT 2020 Cancelled

Checklists are one of the best things about Airshows. Certainly saves pen & paper so you can concentrate more on photography and watching the displays.

Re: RAF Nightingale (formally London City Airport)

Have the RAF sold their 146s yet? The ideal aircraft to use. Mind you could FlyBEs Dash 8s not be used?

Question regarding pilots oxygen masks?

Just wondering what the position is with the RAFs Typhoon and F-35B Lightning pilots plus any other Fast Jet such as Hawk Jets with the pilots oxygen masks with all this Covid 19 stuff, do the Masks get cleaned/ washed on a regular basis or do the pilots wash and clean them themselves?

Re: ZP802 first UK Flight

Have either P-8 made an approach to Edinburgh yet, the same way the Nimrods used to? Reason I ask is the it mentioned Firth Of Forth so i instantly wondered wether they had made an approach for Edinburgh?
