Re: Middle East tensions increase

They got a lot further than almost ordering early F-16s, following the Jan'79 revolution, their order for 75 F-16A/Bs was diverted to Israel! Ironically soon after delivery some if these were used against Iran's sworn enemy!

Re: Lakenheath Big Cats Sunday 07-Sept-2018

A friend asks, do the LN F-15s still carry names, White Walrus etc, or have they disappeared. Is there a topic on FC with a full list?

Re: Lakenheath base tour

Hi guys, I am listed on the tour but have a question: will anyone be able to give me a ride to Stansted after the visit for a 19.50 flight (so to be there around 18.30 or earlier)? Of course, if anyone else is heading for Sliac, please send me a PM!! This assumes that the bus we use on base will sta...

Re: Red Arrows RAF Scampton air base to be sold off

With the Royal Air Force now run by second rate CPAs who couldn't get a job in industry, Wittering makes perfect sense. All the MoD has to do is buy a few NO PARKING signs and some traffic enforcement cameras and set them up on the A-1. Obv the Reds wont have the appeal of the PT, SC, SD etc SLUFs o...

Re: India v Pakistan

Between the procurement process in the Indian MOD and the IAF safety record I'm surprised that the PAF don't just sit back and wait 'till the Indians run out of airframes.
Back in the day it was said that the easist way to acquire an F-104 was to buy a field in Germany .... and wait!

Re: CANON EOS 750D v NIKON D5600

Tim, I upgraded to the 750D about a year ago. I have had no problem with battery life, so far, and am happy with the "feel" of the body. An important consideration is what you are shooting and from where: if 90% of your shots are on the ramp, stick with your existing kit, maybe with a better lens. I...
