Re: Missing post

I'm not sure who monitors the 'Contact us' inbox but the quickest way to contact a member of staff is to go to the Index page, go to the bottom to the list of users online, click on a staff member (Admin are in red, Moderators are dark blue) and send a PM to one of them.
I hope that helps. :)

Question, which I'm sure Mr Luxton will be able to answer, a mind of USAF information.

Re: Notam 11/10/19

Wonder why the NOTAM? I, along with others I am sure, watch this topic to increase the chances of getting to see the Buffs during their deployment. Every time someone posts, I get an email and have to pause work, log back into the forum and check the latest news. It is always a massive disappointme...

It would be a good idea to correct the title though - it's against the rules of the forum, see rule 9 :- viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24285

But I've been doing it for 55yrs next April. I'd say that's not many considering there were 744 built.
That's about the same as me, 55 years last August and have seen 108 of all marks - that includes about 15 at Griffiss AFB in 1980 though, so not all in the UK. :)

I'm not sure which day the Photo Day was but there's a list of the A-7s that took part in here :- http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/html/deploy85.htm

Just scroll down until you find the Coronet Buffalo entry.
