Bit cool for venturing out without trousers isn't it?

Brave Captain!

Brilliant!!! End of a memorable era. I recall seeing the US Blue Angels F4's displaying here in Notts UK many, many years ago - awesome!

Re: Hotel Help

A lot of the Wales LFA7 guys use this place:-

Never stayed there myself (have own accommodation nearby) but seems to get good reviews from enthusiasts.

Re: Wildcat arrives at Yeovilton

Army Lynx Wildcat with wheels???? Should surely have skids??

I wonder if it's anything to do with the AAC being embarked on board HM Navy vessels in future.

Any comments?

Re: Kemble 18.06.11

I was there on Sunday. I noticed the fuel venting from Miss Demeanour's wing tank then too. This resulted in its flight being curtailed and engine tests were subsequently carried out. It would seem that the problem was sorted as "Flapjack" (Jonathan Whaley) departed safely at the end of the show wit...

I would normally have visited 2 or 3 times a year together with a fellow enthusiast (we're both pensioners, so not wealthy!) so, if one of us cou...
