Mustang,

Thanks for that - can't explain how I didn't see the list on Scramble - I usually look there first - and ask questions later!

IAT 1995 - Victory Salute - Tiger Moths

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has a list of the Tiger Moths that took part in the Victory Salute at the end of the show on SUNDAY 23rd July 1995. I know the majority were probably wearing civilian marks :blush: - but I'm struggling to make anything new that's military (or ex-military) nowadays! Thanks...

LAA Rally Sywell - 2nd Sep 2017 - C-17 OTT

Whilst queueing to get into the LAA Rally at Sywell on Saturday 2nd September 2017 - a USAF C-17 was noted overhead at 09:07 hrs.

Anyone get an ID for this?

TIA,

Re: REQ - Benson 2nd June 1985

Is there any chance that 'P' could be a mispole for 'B'? If so, MAM 1985 says Venture T.2 ZA628 was coded 'B' and operated by No. 632 VGS at RAF Ternhill. MAM 1986 has ZA628 still coded 'B' but now operated by No. 637 VGS at RAF Little Rissington. Managed to find my old Military Aircraft Markings b...

Thanks Mate. I suppose we are spoilt nowadays with times on the digital photos.

Thanks Steve - funnily enough 1985 was my first complete year of BAR - so now you can see why I asked the question!

Many thanks for checking - it is appreciated!

REQ Marham - May 1985 - Portuguese A-7’s

Very much a long shot...
I noted 2 x A-7 Corsair (accompanied by two Tonkas) at low level near Stratford-upon-Avon at 1145 hrs local on 7th May 1985.
Anyone have a log that includes departure times?

Any one know which military bases can handle 747 400s aside from Brize, Fairford, Mildenhall, Lakenheath, Marham and MoD Boscombe Down, does not look like the commercial airfields can afford the disruption I’ve seen a 747 freighter at Waddington in the past.

Re: Why RAF Boscombe Down?

Wittering has had 747s in the past. For today it could then be left at the main gate - A1 to Knottingley - M62 Westwards and then onto the Wirral. An easier/shorter journey for those in quarantine? And how are you planning to remove the 747 from the grass once it’s failed to cope with a 30-40 degre...

Re: Why RAF Boscombe Down?

Has no-one taken into account the direction of a rather strong breeze? Why struggle with a crosswind and then struggle with a diversion to a alternate airfield that’s not prepared for the logistics of such an arrival. Boscombe - dead quiet and straight into the wind. A couple more hours on a bus wit...

Drove round Scampton this morning, most of the base housing is in great condition and looks in good nick. There were various community buildings and sports areas that also look great. The only worn down/closed buildings I could see were the old billet blocks, they did look a mess. The hangars all l...
