Re: New Colour Scheme for VC-25B's

Fair enough, after 50 years it's possibly time for a change.

The blue livery ( I remember it being called Constitution Blue previously ) looks well on the quad jets but really doesn't scale-down to the 757 and Gulfstreams, they look awkward.

Re: RIAT 2018 ARRIVALS

Standard crazy landings for the Ukrainians. Flankers turned-in tight and the Candid did a wheelie down the runway.

Re: RIAT 2018 ARRIVALS

If it's really that bad better give your ticket to someone who would appreciate it :whistle: If you send me £500 you can have mine right now, plus my accommodation. Going to RIAT isn't just about the ticket price, it's a big commitment in time and money and one that I don't think I'll be making aga...

Chipmunk, Camel and Cub all slipped in around 19:10 as we were in the car park. Two patient spotters still in West then waiting for them. Lots of disappointment re: Atlantique. Lovely aircraft with ridiculously slow props and tremendous vortices which we were hoping to see in more humid air. Hope th...

Don't know the source but that was the rumour at West.

Re: RIAT 2018 ARRIVALS

Atlantique departed 17:00, apparently recalled to France for ops

UAV holding north of Cirencester which is frustrating as we have had a 30 min gap here.
