Re: COVID-19 UK

The wife was in B&M Inverness today to take something back, she was speaking to a supervisor at the till about the latest Krankie regulations up here that start tomorrow that state everyone MUST wear a face mask in ALL shops. The supervisor said that they have no control over that and that they are...

Re: Big Jet TV

I noticed that the IFE a/c didn’t engage the approach end cable, did he engage the over run cable instead?

Re: COVID-19 UK

There lies the one nagging question that i keep going back to. I understand if you cant go into it, but is there any figures going about that can confirm what you are saying about staff infection rates? The reason i ask is my eldest works in the care system, but not a care home, and they have had 3...

Re: Nicola Sturgeon?

It's not a case of the security rights not being handed over, they were never requested in the first place. I'm criticising Nicola and Jeane Freeman for not having their finger on the pulse and being aware of whats what. As First Minister and Health Sec for Scotland respectively they should've both ...

Re: Big Jet TV

Is there not a law concerning the filming of panoramic views of airports and airfields? I know the RAF photo permit made it clear enough that it wasn’t permissible.

Re: COVID-19 UK

I would have to say that if COVID was open to airborne transmission then the infection and death rate figures would be far more astronomical than they already are and ICU’s would be overflowing with no staffing available. The fact that very few NHS frontline staff have been infected by this virus wo...

Re: Nicola Sturgeon?

Sturgeon and her cronies really have turned the pandemic into a political point scoring contest and are looking very much like a rabbit in a cars headlights. Five days ago she was very very critical of the UK ending the quarantine rules for certain countries entering the UK. Now after being found ou...

Re: Army, Navy, RAF severe cuts

I am afraid the essential truth is we are and have been very poorly served by politicians for years . You should count yourself lucky that you don’t live in countries like Brazil, Mexico, Turkey and to some extents the USA. I think us British have got things pretty good , yes we all have our gripes...

Re: That B-52 take - off Air Fete '90

In the Fairchild incident the B-52 was flying at more than 90 deg of bank and lost all elements of lift. The crash report is something else to read.

Re: US Army to La Rochelle

Looks like there is only one quayside that will be able to handle a ship capable of transporting helicopters and access doesn’t look promising land side. Will these helicopters re locate to a nearby airfield before heading further into Europe?

Totally agree there, some people just don’t care but will be the first to moan if they or a relative gets infected.

Re: COVID-19 UK

Maybe they don’t think it’s safe to open, maybe they don’t want to open and have everyone social distancing which may have a negative effect on a country pub, or maybe it’s a case of let the idiots have their weekend but in someone’s else’s pub. Seen it all too readily today, people going into one a...

Re: COVID-19 UK

Sounds like the landlord is applying common sense and erring on the side of caution, they obviously respect their customers and local community. No point in rushing full throttle into something that no one knows how this is going to go. The country(UK) is opening up far too fast without waiting for ...

Re: Nicola Sturgeon?

People in Scotland need to remember, that financially the situation of the past 16 weeks would’ve bankrupted the country if it wasn’t for the Government of the UK bailing the whole country out. Population isn’t the factor, it’s the density of that population. Sturgeon isn’t playing a blinder, she’s ...

Re: NOTAM RW 05/23 Lossie

Turns out that the whole story was yet another over dramatisation by the BBC. The initial test that was carried out by Volker was an antigen test, which was followed up by an active test of which both have returned negative. The way the BBC reported it you’d have thought the nations security was at ...

Re: NOTAM RW 05/23 Lossie

Has it, two workers have tested positive with antigens which suggests they already had the virus. No mention of works being suspended in the news that I've seen.
