Note that the word "military" is not qualified by such words as "solely, "purely" or " only" :P

Re: Unacceptable comments at Yeovilton

I wonder what RIAT would think if that kind of behaviour were to be displayed at their event by a member of their team?

Re: Unacceptable comments at Yeovilton

Yes he could have done so but maybe had valid reasons not to intervene.

Mudhen - fully agree with you on this. Pure selfishness on her part. Why people have to be so unpleasant and often aggressive in such situations is beyond me.

Re: Sweden to Join Tempest Fighter project.

:lol: :lol: :lol: ...

...although the article does say

Re: luton planespotting areas?

You're more likely to get info from the Civilian Aviation forum (click on link at top of page to access/join). The may well be a guide to Luton as well as other locations.
