Anyone hearing any news about the ban being lifted yet? I thought it was up for review March/April

It aint April yet & there would've been overly-excited persons all over this page with news had it happened?

I could've said see 8 posts before yours Mr 'Lazylegs'....but by giving a serious clue that reading the Topic prior to posting can provide the answer to a query, I was hoping to nurture some interest into the Members for reading the previous Posts before requesting others to do the research for them. :)

I'm fairly fluent in the language of Subtlety - at least translating it, less so using it :lol:

I was very tempted to post a bogus link informing the world of Typhoon resumption but only inverted flight.

It would have gone down like a lead balloon and the mods have already started to mark my card, so I bottled out.

By the way, did anything come good with the Italian spaghetti tree project? ;)

Still on as far as I can see, though a chink of light has appeared in the form of a few hawk flights reusing the loop.

It is pretty sad all the bad feeling this is causing. It appears the pilot concerned made an error but surely that could have been dealt with by a good 'old fashioned dressing down' or 'toilet cleaning duty' as per old days. As for the poster I can't really believe she did anything wrong by posting at all. On the other hand 'he' who posted that photo of the crashed Red Arrow that resulted in a fatality to aircrew ( and was pretty obviously such) should have handed those photos in and definitely should not have posted it.

Things change over time. I guess low flying as we knew it is going to be at an end as in most cases it is no longer required. I think back to the very early 80s when standing at the top of the old quarry ( about 80-100 feet ) on the way up to Glen Doll during Scout abseiling with my father and looking down on a Buccaneer! Now that was low flying!
Perhaps we should just be glad we got to witness it all.

If you're referring to the chap who posted the shot of a RAFAT aircraft going through the loop claiming it was the last shot of the crashed aircraft, it's worse than that - the aircraft he posted the shot of is still very much in one piece and flying - and as the tail number was clearly visible at the time it increased the distress caused to a number of people who initially thought that people were affected who were, in fact, safe and well. I find it appalling that the chap who posted that got less "stick" for it than Debbie did for the video.

:roll:

Which reminds me of a DoE Award w/end whilst assessing Gold groups in the '80s.
I was heading north, near the top of Gunnerside when I was undertaken by a Tornado. The backseater looked up and waved as the pilot lifted to rise over the ridge.
Made my day :)
Someone I know followed a family car speeding along a Cornish road. A little boy & an older girl waving madly at the pilot. :roll:
