Re: UK base visits 14th may - 18th help needed

So if they are on night flying this week, what impact will that have on flying next week, will there be less flying during the day then?

the lightning that intercepted Concorde at full speed, and over took her! ""Everyone had a bash - F-15s, F-16s, F-14s, Mirages, F-104s - but only the Lightning managed to overhaul Concorde from behind" Flt Lt Mike Hale at the roll-out ceremony for XR749

Re: Landing on Highways

So does anyone know, is this even in the list of RAF options, do we have any roads which are designated as runways should they need to be used? surely they have some, it just makes sense doesn't it, modern jets need much less equipment now as well to be supported so they only need a place to re-arm ...

Re: Time to climb records

so when the Americans boast about the f15's climb rate, its actually not that great because a combat ready f15 wouldn't get near a combat ready lightning or phantom, let alone the new generation Not really heard much on the f22 and its official climb rate, like i said, to me a eurofighter looks much...

Time to climb records

Just wondering what is now the fastest, i think the streak eagle owned it for a while but just wondering if any of the new jets would claim this easily without extensive modifications, if we was talking from breaks off to 50,000ft, what would win today, i have seen the raptor and eurofighter fly and...
