Fair enough Zy. I assume Rob can still enter POTY and SPOTM with that shot should he wish?

Re: Refuelling the F-35 ,when on the QE ?

Arthur,
You might have read the Air Tanker contract. I have to confess I haven't. Do you know if it definitely excludes alternative tanker arrangement for seaborne forces? It would seem a daft decision to have signed up to were it the case.

Yes. Maybe we can still vote for Rob and see if he would have won but for this ruling?

Re: Refuelling the F-35 ,when on the QE ?

MV-22 VARS would extend the range of a F-35B sufficiently to enable the QE to stand-off out of range of most shore based anti-shipping missiles... (That is if the early F-35Bs don't runout of airframe hours before they put to sea.)

Re: Daks over Normandy: 2-5 June 2019@Duxford

You would have noticed that you cannot buy the usual general admission ticket for either of those days. So, either the DoD ticket includes admission or the IWM is closed ;) for those two days.

Very interesting post Al. Thanks.
I'm a little surprised by the birdbath as I keep reading that the P-8s only operate at high altitude. RIP the Nimrod.

Apply (and pay?) before you get info is a very interesting concept. Still, I'm sure it'll sell out!
It worked in June and it was twice the price... :'(

Nice to catch up with you today Kevin. Yes, good selection of airframes. Pity the weather was so grey for photos.
