Re: Spring and Phantoms in Korea

Great set Jamie, we had ROKAF F-4's planned for this November, but the year is still young spotting-wise. Superb spring weather also, had some milky skies before around Seoul. Must be corona induced 'blue skies'.

Re: C17s to Fairford

They stayed at FL270 on their trip, nothing would have been dropped. Cheers for that, apparently just missed the signal while transiting Dutch airspace. Every few years they do drops on 'Global Power' missions. Since the mission area was a quick peak into the Baltics it probably does not qualify as...

Re: Swiss F5E/F new home?

2019/20 procurement programme, I believe. Begs the question, what happens to the Patrouille Suisse? The original 110 Tigers was reduced to 54.(around 2000). Now there is a new reduction to around 30 . So the 22 are presumably the deduction between 54 and 30. It was said the Patr.Suisse would contin...

Re: C17s to Fairford

Stray 81 on Brize radar 264.775 now. Stray81 was calling 60-0061 from the box throughout the mission. It turned out they were a duo, 60-0024 (Stray81) and 60-0025 (Stray82). I guess only one of the a/c 'pinged'. They disappeared from ADSB just before entering Dutch airspace from Northern Germany. T...

Re: Trip through the Land of the Rising Sun

in that first pic the guy is wearing glasses. do they have a lower eyesight standard than our RAF? International surveys show that 80-90% of the young people in Asia are near-sighted so getting pilots in with a 20/20 vision is very hard! This leads to lower levels of influx of (military) pilots in ...
