Re: French Delight at Glasgow.

Have they run out of paint? That would make a great subject for a kit build with a finish like that.
Thanks for sharing.

Re: NOTAM 08/10/19

Just curious to know, I wonder if anybody on here can answer the following. Do the designated diversion airfields for the U2 have a set of "dolly wheels" for the wing tips ? If not or if a U2 diverted into a non designated airfield in an emergency would it have to stay where it stopped until help a...

Re: Frightening Excursions to 80s Binbrook

Thanks for the appreciative comments. Something that might have escaped yr attention is the sharkmouth marking on the nose of XR754/AE which is hard to spot given the a/c's banking attitude. I believe this had been applied to a pair of a/c on a recent APC in Cyprus and altho' they went down well wi...

Anyone know if the F-35's routed directly over Brize last time? I'll be in the area today and might pop down if there is a chance of seeing them.

Re: UK Low flying 1970s, 1980s

My hometown of Llangollen was well served by NATO's finest at low level. Situated in the Dee Valley it was a very busy entry/exit route for the Welsh mountains. When the big air defence exercises were on large mixed formations would fly East down the valley closely followed by F-4's from the C.A.P a...

Bargain Booze have been selling it. There was a falling out between the brewers and the distributors so it was withdrawn. I've heard a whisper its set for a re-launch sometime.

Re: some Hawk Servicing Flight movements late 4/18

Thanks for your correction re AMRO not HSF. AMRO= Aircraft Maintenance & Repair Organisation?? Use of differential braking is what I meant - my phrasing was perhaps misleading in this instance implying there was a standalone NWS (sub) system as per Typhoon within its landing gear system. I apprecia...

I read a slightly different account of the incident in that the pilot was a bit premature in raising the undercarriage. :Oops:

Re: 6 Ex RAF Tristars sold to US company

Interesting news, I just wonder where they are going to get pilots and Flight Engineers from as there haven't been any L-1011s flying for some time now and probably most previous crews are well out of qualifications by now. I also suspect each aircraft will require some sort of extensive flight tes...
