Re: The Cold Blue

Does any one know what airfields were shown? Thanks, Dave Looks like RAF Bassingbourn was the main airfield they filmed from as that's where the Memphis Belle was based (https://www.americanairmuseum.com/place/28). Also, it seems the HBO version (https://www.hbo.com/documentaries/the-cold-blue) rel...

Re: req 64-0536

Might not be helpful but according to this log: viewtopic.php?t=139903, the other Herc 64-0535 was at Mildenhall in September 1981 on TDY from 314th TAW. So might suggest the mystery C-130 was part of the same unit?

Seeing this reminded me of the squadron seniority lists that have been shared in the past.

Hopefully another OL-UK patch will be created like the last time they were here - www.raf-fairford.co.uk/ol-uk
Seems there is a new deployment/squadron patch: https://imgur.com/a/q2uAGT5. No idea if the crews are wearing it but this was included in the latest (May 2020) Combat Aircraft magazine.

https://www.forces.net/news/raf-mildenhall-closure-delayed-until-least-2027 Don’t know if there’s been an official press release but this is what mentions the 2027 date. What’s the possibility of Mildenhall ending up like Fairford has been until recently, an operational base but with no based aircra...

Re: Black/Primer Typhoon

This might not be helpful but I saw a black tailed Typhoon in one of the hangars to the right of the BBMF on 17th January last year. Might possibly be the same jet?

Re: Area 51 storming.

The whole thing is certainly a joke, there's a lot of good memes that have been spawned from it, but I wonder if the 1.3 million people actually turned up (which they won't) what would happen? Violence wouldn't be the solution.
