Right time, right place...at work! Great shot Mark. Referring to the second post by 'Amp'..... seeing a 'Blackbird' at the top of the fin. First impression for me was a Bottlenose Dolphin! ;)

Sooo! If it's a Host Issue why does this affect some viewers & not others?... Genuine Question, as this is definitely on the boundary of any insight I might have!

Re: Movements 1/11/19

Roger4 You are right in that it's to stop aircraft accidentally or even deliberately dropping ordnance on the capital. Armed or potentially armed aircraft are not permitted to overfly or through the London TMA. this has been the case since at least the 1st Gulf War. When the bombers returning to Fa...

Re: Airbus delivers NH90 Sea Lion to Germans

Shame the Sea Lion isn't painted in their Marineflieger Sea King scheme, but both the Belgian & Dutch Navy NH-90's also came in the standard Airbus Helicopters Grey & White too! Gonna be hard to see the Country of ownership until they've flown past! I wonder what colour scheme their 'Sea Tiger's' wi...

Re: Iruma Airshow Japan 2019

Obviously your best approach to this depends on whether you arrive at Iruma by Car or Train? As stated above the trains from Tokyo out to Iruma are very busy.....& those going back require extensive marshalling of the crowd outside the Tokyo-bound Platform! If you have a car, to make things easy...…...

Nice selection of shots! Must be a 'thing' with this Museum, we got there about 40 minutes before closing & agreed to 'walk' briskly (run?) around the exhibits before closing-time. :roll:

Re: USAF awards $6.4bn for mock dogfighting services

That was my initial thoughts too, however (even though the title grabs your attention) there is clear intent further into the article to provide "aircraft for 10,000 close air support sorties annually in the continental United States to facilitate JTAC (Joint Terminal Attack Controllers) training.

Re: USAF awards $6.4bn for mock dogfighting services

Can't imagine who the eighth Company bidding was? Interesting to note elsewhere that the US Air Force announced in May 2019, that it would reactivate its own 65th Aggressor Squadron and for the first time since the aircraft entered service it will use eleven F-35A Lightning II as Aggressors.

The time that people are coming coming to sell patches has nothing to do what time aircraft are operating! This is not strictly true.

Don't do scanners really, but I did happen to see that yesterdays' Tracking Info' here on FC. suggested Castle Op's is now on 306.4 (Not 308.0). I think that if you read through the missions flown this week you will find many potentially useful freq's! ;)
