Re: Groom Lake, 14th Feb 2019

Hi Chris.
No need for the misleading title.
The last few pages of photos don't have any Brize shots so why think nobody would want to look.

P8s at Atlanta Hartsfield 3/2/19

Hi folks.
Not sure if anyone else was at Hartsfield during the Superbowl weekend but there are 2 P8s in Delta's maintenance area.
167954.
168432.

Not sure when they arrived or are due out. 954 is missing part of its rudder.

Mike.

Though it was a civvie aircraft, an A340, the fact it was skidding off the runway (Brussels 1997) that made it notable, so I sent i...

Hi Folks Quote> I'd want to put all aircraft that can't fly out in the strongest hangars possible. So why not put them in with other equipment?

Hi Reinier.

Like the Montana(9) in the rain, lots of people wouldn't have tried.
Hope your equipment dried out alright afterwards?

Should England progress further, please think of us poor sods on early shifts. Don't go racing out in your cars at 2230 blowing your horns!

Hard enough to sleep in this weather.
Rant over and glad they squeaked through another round.
