Re: NAS Miramar '74 - part 4

Love the asymmetric wing fold on that Phantom - and the puzzled looking crew.

That's cruel.
A mate of mine who used to be a Phantom techie has numerous scars from walking into sharp bits or skinning his knuckles on hard to reach bolts.

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

The entrance to the Waddington shows from the south was usually off the Grantham Road, through the farmyard and the fence close to the southern end of the runway. When the Vulcan and 2 Lancasters did their take off and flyby of the Bomber Command Memorial, the farmer opened up his field by this entr...

Re: REDS

A couple of weeks ago I was doing some clearing out of the loft and came across some Aviation News mags. Foremost in one was an article about the imminent move of the Reds from Scampton to Cranwell, with the expectation that they would continue to display over Scampton. Date on the magazine - 1995.

While I have come to accept names and numbers on the backs of football shirts and even one-day cricket team shirts why is it needed for test cricket? What do the numbers signify anyway?

Hi Arthur
You, or anybody else who takes a slightly less than serious attitude to the hobby, might like a quick look at the What-If section on Britmodeller.

Re: Unacceptable comments at Yeovilton

Iozza My pair are fully grown, and work fine thanks. As there were a few people between us, didn't think it would be appreciated by others to do so. Also, hoping she is on here and realises how wrong she was. As she will be working at RIAT as security, not really an acceptable way thinking. How do ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

So last update tomorrow? Think Japan will be confirmed if they are attending and I am hoping we find out if/what the Sunday flypasts will be. My guess is either the KC-767 or C-2. If they are coming. Imagine if a KC-767 was dragging Phantoms with it. Imagine everyone slating RIAT suddenly changing ...

Re: Get Back To School!!

Home schooling is a safe guarding disaster waiting to be recognised. Schools already have to report "disappeared children" to the LA; those who are home schooled don't have that level of protection. Am I accusing every parent of home schooling of abuse, absolutely not. Have I ever heard of a really ...

Re: Sanicole 2019 - 13th and 15th September

2017. We got tickets for all 3 related events (Friday night show, Saturday @KB, Sunday show) from the website for a single price- suggestion is to print off 3 copies, 1 for each day. Check out Chrisse on UKAR (Overseas airshows) as he is one of the organisers and is always happy to answer questions.
