Re: Tiger Meet RIAT 1997

I might be wrong but ive got a strong feeling the blue tiger tailed Dutch F-16's are from before 1997. I made a model of one too and it was way before that i think.

Re: U2 deployment news

Might resurrect the title `Operating Location - United Kingdom` last used when U-2's were based at Fairford Mar'95 -Jan'96. Although they had 3 (differently configured) U-2R's based, a total of 10 U-2's used Fairford during that period with the maximum present at one time being 5 a/c. This was a co...

Re: Notam 27/08/2019

Can possibly hear something running from 600m north east, but can't be sure as it's also rush hour in Fairford! Any ears on the fence?

Re: T-45 Goshawk Pilot

Thanks Rob. These are now a staple weekly listen on car journeys. Very informative and liking the new better quality and volume equalising of each party on the recording. Top effort.

Re: RIAT and the future

It's happened before and no reason why it can't happen again. The RC activities will be enclaved in a relatively small part of the airbase, not accessible to the public and easily restricted to tattoo staff, so there shouldn't be an issue. It has some of the biggest areas of hardstanding of any airb...

Re: RIAT and the future

I am a Fairford resident. The documentation mentions the details and personnel numbers about the bases new role, it doesn't say anything of the sort about the end of the annual airshow. I was at a meeting recently with the base commander who said publicly the show will continue, referencing the fact...

Base PR contact for Mont de Marsan

Im on holiday close to Mont de Marsan next month. I'd like to make contact with PR at the base before my trip to ask if i can access the 'heritage' area to take a few photos of the various Mirages (IVP being the main aim) on a day suitable to them. Ive had a search of Google etc and cant find a cont...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

"..alarming"!? I dont think the number of aircraft confirmed/not confirmed for an airshow can really be described as alarming? Alarming would be if there was a nuke on the way from Russia, i got home to find my house had been burgled, there were no biscuits left in the tin etc ;) On another note i h...
