Friday 13th flying?

I hear rumours that thursday is the last day of exercise flying with the saudis and there will be no flying on friday. Can any one confirm this?

Thanks.

Rough CBY morning launch time?

Hi all. Can any of the regulars that have been up to CBY for the Saudi/RAF ex so far tell me what average time the first launches are in the morning please? I may need to leave early one day this week to get back down south for a certain time but want to make sure i catch the morning action. Thanks ...

Re: Boscombe Down ATI 92

How many limbs would you cut off to go back to this show for a day! Sadly at 12 at the time i dont remember much about it. The F-14 display was one i really wish i could recall.

Oh for some of those types now. Pretty much everything you could hope for there..
