Re: Air Fete 2000 - definitely the wettest

Another great hark back to Air Fetes. Love the Draken!

The Austrians were at Mildenhall show in 1978 with their Saab 105 team Karo AS

Re: COVID-19 UK

Well quite frankly, good because TBH your carefree "we're all gonna die anyway so sod it all" attitude is becoming a little tiresome to say the least! That kind of attitude is the very reason why a lot of people are still cautious-to-paranoid about going out. You do what you like but please keep you...

Re: Omani Air Force ranks.

Not according to this official reference (rather than Wiki although they match):

OF-3 is Sqn Ldr and OF-4 is Wg Cmdr.

Re: Omani Air Force ranks.

Looking at Wikipedia (risky I know but sometimes right), the equivalent NATO is OF-4 which equates to an RAF WIng Commander.

Re: NO VIEWING AT RAF SPADEADAM

Spending next week with my wife for a well-earned break in Northumberland. Had hoped to visit the waterfall as we are keen photographers. Now something else ruined by thoughtless idiots. Thanks for nothing. Uncaring, selfish minorities are slowly spoiling things for the majority.

And when it's written then as above. No discussion needed so take a couple of paracetamol, do some gentle exercise and move along.

To be honest I didn't take note, but maybe the only two-seater they could get to use for the programme.
