Re: MRTT053 Cambridge

Could I please ask you to reconfirm with whoever checked the c/n at Manchester?
I cannot find a single source or photo to disprove:

19-003 K3 1883 MRTT052 (ex EC-339, F-WWKP)
(004) K4 1891 MRTT053 (ex EC-333, F-WWYV)

However, that does not of course prove that it is correct.

Re: MRTT053 Cambridge

You are confused... 19-002 was delivered in March, so cannot be arriving at Cambridge for painting in October. Here is a photo showing both MRTT051 and serial 19-002: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9245686 When you say "19-003 MRTT052 c/n 1891 (ex F-WWYV/EC-333)" was visually confirmed as such what...

A15 closure - weekend

Just a reminder to all that the A15 is now shut between Bracebridge Heath and the WAVE for the weekend, for continuing works on the Lincoln by-pass.

Re: ITV series - Fighter Pilot, the real Top Gun

Intrigued to see that the female (can't remember her name) Royal Navy pilot will now fly the Typhoon. Strange philosophy. Not at all. It was obviously considered that she was not quite ready for the demands of the F-35. A tour on Typhoons will be a perfect lead-in. In the "old days" RN pilots who p...

Re: Lodz - Lublinek 15th July 2019

Whoa, hold on! Lodz is a helicopter maintenance facility, so there is quite a turnover of stored machines.
Firstly, Mi-8T 523 has not been noted there for twenty years! This includes by people who have had a tour.
When are you saying 272 and 727 were seen there please MRTT?

Re: Bastille flypast 2019

The problem appears to be with the RER C line from Notre dame - it seems to terminate at Musee D'Orsay It is only a short walk along the river bank ( 5 to 10 minutes) to the usual spotting area near the Air France Building at Invalides. RER B to is operating normally from Notre dame to CDG etc Ther...

You would need a government that thinks public money grows on trees to provide that sort of flypast every year.

Peter, I was at that show. As happened quite often at that time, a base list was obtained from a hangar board. I can add: /ABF - code seen but not confirmed /BBK - not seen, don't think code is valid - mispole? /BCF - 1337 on base list 1189/BCG - agreed 1077/BCK? => code not 100% certain - 1077/BCK ...
