I remember the families day at Waddington in the 70's when they had a Vulcan putting on a display etc.

What!! the sim could not fit in a C5, I thought the C5 was about the same size as the AN-124!! I may sound a bit cynical, but with everybody at the Rwy 20 end it will land on 02!! as happened some years ago when a C5 came in.

Re: Working up to 70+UK ?

It's been in the media for a while now that people will be working up to 70 before they get their state pension in the near distant future. Unless you have a whopping pension to fall back on then that would not be the case.

Working up to 70+UK ?

With the announcement of 1700 jobs to go at Ford Bridgend, and with other job losses in the retail trade due to on line shopping etc. How does the government expect people to carry on working in to their 70's. Unless you have a whopping pension to fall back on where will be the jobs. Also with schoo...

Re: RAF Coningsby Runway Works Info

Question how do they keep the aircraft flying when this is going on, do they do in sections at a time & what about the English weather etc. Marham has two runways when they did theirs, Coningsby doesn't !!

Re: RAF Coningsby Runway Works Info

So if they are keeping the aircraft at Coningsby, why do other stations having their runway resurfaced send their aircraft else where?

Re: Get Back To School!!

DanBeeden My post was about the kids & teachers spending to much time taking days out of school to protest. as I said in my other post they have made their point, and should concentrate on their education. They can still learn about climate change in schools or in books, maybe if they want to carry ...

Re: Get Back To School!!

Yes climate change is a problem but I think they have made their point and should now get back to learning. Maybe when they have left school they can add their contribution by getting a career in that area.

Get Back To School!!

Yet again we see kids taking time off school for climate change protests, and guess what its another bank holiday looming up. Why don't they protest on a weekend or bank holiday no because they they want an extra day off school!!! Another fad !!!
