Re: RAF VC-10, but where was it taken?

Definitely wouldn't have been where your arrow shows on the Gib Google Earth shot, way too shallow, probably chest deep. I should know, I used to take a dip there when there was a break in flying when I was on the BCU. Oh, maybe I shouldn't have said that......nah, Eff it, it was 30 years ago..........

Re: Affinity Photo discount

Are there any other "easier-to-use" editors, especially with RAW? Been trying the On1 trial and it's just too blommin' finicky. Too many options! Even old versions of Photoshop make my head explode. It's an age thing. I use good old Google Picasa 3, albeit its way out of date, but it still does what...

Unfortunately, last night was the last chance to see the ISS visually over the UK until around the 10th June. That's orbital mechanics for you.

Next they will be doing all this range work on a simulator!! They already are, and have been since I left Holbeach, and The Mob, in 2007.
