Re: Bomb range warning after moped incident

"Earlier this week, the RAF said spectators were risking serious injury by standing too close to jets as they take off and land at its Coningsby and Waddington bases, also in Lincolnshire."

We're they inside the fence or something?

Re: Google Earth F15's

F-15Es normally park on the two ramps from my (albeit limited) experience, I wonder if the sun shelters were still being built so both squadrons were displaced onto one ramp.

Otherwise it just looks like a normal day of possibly 06 ops to me, with a visitor in!

Re: Glossary of terms

There are two options. Land, or don't.

The first option has one option: land.

The second option has many options: touch and go, low approach, go around, etc.

Re: Italian Navy Portsmouth Dockyard

MM81636 is an MH-101A, MM81485 is an SH-101A...unless anyone thinks differently? The Italian designation system is utterly broken.

Re: New Depth Support Facility

Parts will be by road, just like they are to Wattisham, or Boscombe, or Fleetlands, or Valley, or anywhere else that does depth work for various fleets.

I'd imagine most of it arrives in the UK by ship or commercial belly cargo anyway.

Re: Red Arrows in Turmoil ?

Shock as journalist finds something long-lasting, far-reaching and newsworthy and runs with it until they get to the bottom of it. How unacceptable that they've chosen to pick on the poor, nice men of RAFAT who are obviously victims of some kind of Sky witch-hunt. "Whatever happened, happened". Yep ...
