No bird strike was reported and it appeared that the rear of the left stabilator had delaminated I got that information from Gloustershire Live but they've since added "Confirmation when we get it" There was no bird strike. The stabiliser trailing edge structure failed ...

US F16 has an issue, vibrations in the cockpit.

Just done a fly through and can see rear right stabiliser is flapping at the rear. On approach to land now

Looks damaged from a picture I saw - did he bit the runway
The F16 suffered a bird strike.

Re: Vulcan Depature time ?

She has done extremely well this year, a testament to the crews.

It would appear that the Sea Vixen is also not making an appearance which means the Heritage Flypast will not take place.

Re: Vulcan flights 2013

Just gone over Northampton, Vulcan crew aren't the only ones to be annoyed. If only I'd have known, that might have just been my only chance to see it flying.. I can understand your upset but the cancellation was down to the weather. Even the RAF Typhoon and the Tucano display team sacked it for th...

Not here but I think she was routing Odiham, Oxford and so on on her way back to Doncaster.

Now informing Farnborough she will free call Brize and route Wantage then turn north east of there.

Vulcan radio operator sounds p!$$ed off, shame as they tried.

Yeah I just had a text saying it's pouring with rain! Tucanos don't think they can get through the weather but will hold another 5 mins. Vulcan now calling Farnborough but not getting a reply.

Maybe but I don't know what order she is meant to display in, it's possible it could be Dawlish then Dunsfold.

There was a mention of Dorset but Farnborough said Vulcan transmission was broken and advise they contact Bristol or somewhere else but I can't remember where the somewhere else was.
