Re: F-15 crash 15/6/2020

Very sobering reading and very sad.Agree with your comments entirely C24.Would appear to have been in process of recovering-a little more height might have made a big difference.Wonder how many other pilots have just got away with it. Typhoon validation on Friday at RIAT 2005(?) comes to mind.

Re: “RAF accused of wasting money on 'outdated' F-35 warplanes“

Jn my view the two models complement one another quite well.That is providing we have enough B models to fit out the Navy. One potential issue not mentioned so far (unless i have missed it ) is IFR. We dont currently have a capability to refuel the A version.

Re: UH Tiger Meet September 1990

If my memory is correct it was the weekend of cancelled Abingdon Airshow following the tragic crash of RAF Phantom. We went to Abingdon unaware of the crash only to find it cancelled.Option was to call at Upper Heyford on way home and what a great decision that turned out to be.Nice set of photos br...
