Re: Air bases blocked on google satellite view

Thought that myself after I posted. Turns out the article I was referring to was talking about maintenance facilities, which are seemingly limited to only 3 places outwith the US, these being Souda, Dubai and Yokohama.

Re: Air bases blocked on google satellite view

Souda Bay has been pixelated out along with everything other military installation in Greece for a couple of years now. I think you must’ve inadvertently selected the historical option if you saw it only a few weeks ago. The area to the South of the base is a large Naval facility used by Greece, the...

Hellenic AF to buy Rafale

Been talked about over the past few months, the Hellenic AF have now decided to opt for the purchase of 18 Rafale a/c from France, along with other upgrades including MH-60R’s. Does this signal the end for the F-4 in European skies? :( https://greece.greekreporter.com/2020/09/12/greece-to-buy-18-raf...

Re: Pitot tube identification

At 6ft in length, the first a/c that springs to mind is the Lightning, certainly not Tornado or Jaguar.

It’s 95% Black :S was hoping for something a bit more outlandish in order to truly represent an enemy a/c.

Re: COVID-19 UK

The landlord can eject and ban customers if they fail to adhere to the rules, just like they do any other night since pubs have existed. If the customer gets aggressive then call the police, if the landlord can’t take a bit of grief then their probably in the wrong job. Most local councils operate p...

Re: COVID-19 UK

It’s up to the Landlord/lady to police things within their premises, but they won’t as long as the pumps are pumping and the tills are ringing. Then when it all goes horribly wrong and they’re forced to shut again, they turn to the media, telling us how they’re being forgotten about and how unfair t...

Re: COVID-19 UK

It would make a change for you to be positive instead of trying to nit pick everyone else's comments, some of them get very personal and are totally unnecessary. You do not know all the circumstances of people's situations so should keep your views to yourslef. Likewise. Over the last several pages...

Re: COVID-19 UK

From your perspective they aren’t vague..... they’re just plain nonsense. This is what happens when you start having several authorities trying to control the same thing and the worst offenders are local councils who just don’t have the knowledge or expertise to address these matters.

Re: COVID-19 UK

Obviously I don't know what your local council are running out as guidance, but if you were to form a bubble between your and your parents households, I can't see there being a problem unless of course the have underlying heath issues and you would rather not. I'm led to believe that councils where ...

Re: 7-9-20 B52

Only bases that would accept the B-52 down in North Africa/ Mediterranean area of ops will be Lajes, Moron, Istres, Souda, Al Udeid and at a push Cairo West. Ascension although a bit further on is also another option.
