Re: L-159T2 Flies

Been a bit of a saga the L-159. Looks like they're finally getting the product they wanted.

Re: Tempest - Britain's new stealth fighter

We're sending 14 year old Typhoons to RTP to save a few bob.
I'm all for a new British aircraft but where is the magic money tree?

Re: Waddington parking + the Wave

Has the mound of gravel gone from inside the gates? Was useful when caught without ladders.

Re: Red Arrows RAF Scampton air base to be sold off

The base is knackered due to years of cuts, neglect and a lack of investment.

Only thing we can hope for is if someone buys it that will preserve the heritage with the intent to continue to use it for aviation.

To just build houses on it would be criminal.

Surprised they can't come up with a lease deal with BAE for T2s. Done plenty of marketing for them after all.

Please can somebody produce a picture of an RAF Tucano 'mixing-it' with a Spitfire Mk19+ to assist those that can't be arsed to read this thread? :roll:
Why specifically a Mk19? It only specifies "a later make" if you read it correctly. :whistle:

Could have been much further on with this project if they hadn't cancelled FOAS, which was supposed to be a "sacred cow". :whistle:

Swedes know how to make a good machine.

We will be better off than the Franco-German effort which will be cancelled as soon as Germany goes for F-35A. :whistle:
