Re: A few more airshow stalwarts

Your vault must be enormous to consistently keep pulling great stuff from it as regularly as you do!? Keep it coming..

Re: Istrana [LIPS] 30th Anniversary of AMX

The AMX is a cracking little jet. Always looks like a single engined, single seat, fixed wing Tornado to me.. probably due to the lines and similar tail.

Liked its display at RIAT a couple ish years ago. Proper pocket rocket.

Light snow on the ground in Fairford town earlier. Still on the roofs and cars but melting elsewhere so may not have much of an effect on any movements now.

Re: Helicopter deck landings

Having done a stint on 78 Sqn as one of the squadron ops clerks at MPA late 98 early 99, I can confirm the Sea King crews regularly trained with the resident picket boat. In fact it became essential training, as whilst I was down there one of the Sea Kings carried out one of the longest SAR mission...

Re: Tornados, Harriers and Jaguars - a Cosford Night Shoot

Very nice.. yet a little bitter sweet. Are the Tornados still 'runners' for ground training purposes, a bit like the Jags once were?
