Noted this last Friday prior to RIAT, all over blue colour scheme with a reddish orange and black wavey cheatline. Almost looked like a german flag banner from nose to tail. It is at outside, facing towards the REME Museum. Has anyone managed to 100% identify it yet? Many thanks. Reportedly QP32 ht...

Middle East in East Anglia, 29th July 2019

I decided to take a gamble and try to get both the delayed Qatari C-130J arrival at Cambridge, and the RSAF F-15SA delivery into Lakenheath. It was a nervous wait trying to work out the prospective arrival times of both as the Herk droned up across France, whilst leaving enough time to drive up the ...

Re: RIAT German Lynx C/N

On touchdown I saw a list of C/N for some of the aircraft at RIAT Lynx 83+10 was read off as C/n 429 , I probably originally saw that serial as C/n 266. Does anyone on here know how much of the original Cab is retained or is 83+10 a completely different aircraft? Ta It is a totally different cab

Bastille Day 2019

Weather was dull, overcast, with very low cloud. It was my first time at this event, and I came back with mixed feelings. Fantastic numbers, not overly happy with pictures, though the weather did not help. The flypast ones were taken from the Nanterre district. 01. http://www.wattisham.org.uk/images...
