You only get one shot, one opportunity

Great little night shoot held at RAF Cosford museum last night. Very well organised so a big shout out to the lads at Threshold aero and the guys and gals at raf cosford for helping along the way! As the title suggests, just one shot from me and probably the only shot i'll have of the EAP at night h...

Re: RAF Cosford Nightshoot 14th March 2020

Nice shots nick. It was an enjoyable evening. The TSR-2 wasn't placed where Threshold requested, but was great all the same.

Re: B2 Deployment March/April (general information thread)

Is there any indication of how long this deployment will last? I see last summers deployment was about 4 weeks. Are they likely to return to Portugal or are they settled at Fairford now? Just trying to make an educated guess of the best day to free up in the next few weeks to get down to FFD. Thank...

Re: Bruntingthorpe closure

Looking through the above link and then reading the aviation page, at no point does it say the place is closed for good. The whole site is expanding and more and more vehicles arriving. There's no chance this business is going to get smaller or move to another location. Thunder days etc are a thing...

Amazing what can be achieved by stepping more than 5 feet away from the car!

Great effort and some very rarely seen angles

Re: Bruntingthorpe closure

The museum as been closed since around November, temporarily while some work is carried out. Not sure if it's for the car transportation vehicles hub. They have issues over the years because of the amount car transporters on the local roads. New contract was passed for the continuing of this and ne...

Bruntingthorpe closure

As announced on the socials, it seems like Bruntingthorpe is the stop aircraft ops and be turned purely into car storage. Such a shame, but money talks at the end of the day.

Is it written into French ATC's contracts that you must strike at least one every couple of years?
Once every couple of years? They walk out twice a week or so it seems!

Regarding the kc135 with the nose art. Wasn't there a b-1 with 'the reluctant dragon' nose art??
