Re: Horse Riders On Public Roads?

Anybody using the public highway should have appropriate insurance to cover third party damage and medical claims. What annoys me about cyclist is riding 2 or 3 abreast on country roads hampering safe overtaking and the road races which cycle clubs run when my car insurance specifically bans racing ...

Re: Pima Museum Sept 74 Pt 2

Part 3? or is that being optimistic?

I was there about 5 years ago - what a place and still lots of Phantoms over the road.

Re: RAF St Mawgan De Havilland Mosquito

The Mosquito crashed near Manchester on Sunday 21st July 1996 with the loss of 2 lives. If you look at the Scramble site - https://www.scramble.nl/showreports/united-kingdom - you can find lists of airshows and should be able to tie up your dates.

Re: Red Arrows New Base?

Wittering is a no-no because of the proximity of the A1 and resulting accidents during Red Arrows practise. Cottesmore is no more - no lights and the runway is going downhill fast - there's also the issue that's it's now an army base, Kendrew Barracks.

Viewing this week (wb 28/10/19)

I am aiming to drop down early this week; apart from the A14 are there any reasons not to? All squadrons away, American holidays, Trump deciding to sell the fuel for the week to the North Koreans etc?

Re: Seventies Coningsby Display

I think 1975 is right as I first saw Sally B at Finningley that September. (Annoyingly she is not included on the Scramble report but was parked near to the Dutch Neptune)

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.

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.

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.
