Re: Tristar Air LLC Awarded Refueling Contract

Once again 2 posts about the type. I am pretty sure everybody else knows what they are but the point is you have 2 operational aircraft rather than trying to put out of service aircraft back in the air.i hope the P C brigade are ok with this

C-17

I have been watching a video of a c-17 landing on a dirt strip in less than 3500ft and then take off within 500m.is duxford runway big enough for it to do the same. It would be a great edition to a airshow.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

If the US did I really would like to see the c-17 thrown round. I see it back at mildenhall and was impressed with how much it can move.

Options

Right this is just a idea. Recently the red air contract was cancelled and I was thinking of a alternative. In a few years time we are supposed to be retiring the sentinel aircraft and at the same time South Korea are looking into purchasing a similar machine. How about both governments doing a swap...

Tornado f3

Right this is only a what if exercise but before they where retired just how capable could the f-3 have been made. Could ej200 or f414 engines fit. Agile beam radar. And a weapons fit of 6 medium range missiles and 2 ashram.

Wasn't there a series on years ago about the RAF in Canada at cold lake. I am sure it was called top guns. I have been trying to find copies of this but can't find it anywhere

C-17 production

I was reading a article that suggests the USAF are considering restarting production of more C-17's. Do people think this is a good idea.
