Re: Red arrows

Haven't seen the article let alone read it, but where does the USAF B-1 fleet come into our SDSR 2020 review?

Wouldn’t imagine they’d be flying in give the concerns over chemtrails and the aviation industry impact on climate change.
Then again they are politicians.

How else are they meant to get there, boat?

Clearly Erdogan thinks very highly of himself. What’s the second Turkish jet hiding behind the VC-25?

Re: Louisiana ANG @ Lossiemouth

Did the early F-15’s have a different style of dorsal air brake, as some of the a/c in the pictures appear to have a humpback appearance?

Of note it was 3 days later that Shackleton WR965 crashed on Harris, I wonder if it was one of those seen in the background of these pictures?

Re: Horse Riders On Public Roads?

In all fairness it would appear that nowadays 85% of all drivers of all car makes see indicators as a useless optional extra that just so happens to come with the car, a bit like the stop/start (we’re going to save the planet) button. In all my time of driving, I have never felt intimidated or at ri...

Re: China Lake B-29s - 1975

Great stuff, you even managed to throw in the rear end and wing of a F-89, if only these places still existed like that today.

Keep them coming :clap:
