Re: Anyon know why Qinetic/ETPS are going 'Civil'?

According to the company representatives at RIAT, they operate on the civilian register as they no longer just train MOD staff. Operating on the civilian register makes it easier for them to obtain business from the civilian market, which is what they intend to do. This is why you have a wider range...

Re: Bristol Brabazon hangars.

The brabazon hangars contain a lot of asbestos from what I last heard, and will require a lot of work to get them in any sort of state where the public can gain access to them!

Re: Tempest - Britain's new stealth fighter

Took me a while to figure out where I seen this design before, it was at BAe warton going back many years ago. I think it was just a mock up back then too but looked just like this and it was under going radar cross section testing. I think the project was publically known as ‘Replica.’ Now many yea...

Re: Tempest - Britain's new stealth fighter

Hopefully it will do well & we will produce a great aircraft with potentially sales to other air forces, if we teamed up with Saab I feel it’d be a great! The gripen has proven to be a success & is a capable platform but best of all has very low running costs! Meaning more hours in the air & less on...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2018 Discussion Thread

Bit of a joke cancelling the B-52 considering fairford is a forward operating base for B-52’s, unfortunately a lot of star items are dwindling!

Just hope the SU-27’s don’t cancel & F-35’s magically appear over the next 48 hrs.

Very sad news this week with both migs, the Romanian will not be atteneding now due to a fleet grounding. Yes this will be an upset to most spotters, but until investigators have determined cause of crash, no Romanian mig-21 will be flying! Pilots safety is priority and will always take over any air...
