Hi there, I’ve just signed up. A local lad to Boscombe Down, an aero modeller myself with a couple of exhibits in the BD museum at Old Sarum.

Hi everyone, recently signed up, would be interested into getting a little understanding about how the more experienced amongst you go about tracking and listening to the aircraft all across the UK.
Kind regards

Welcome aboard the friendly aviation forum :thumbs:

For listening, you'll need an air band scanner, something like a UBC125XLT, that can pick up military aircraft frequencies and for tracking, on a pc, laptop, tablet or phone, you can get freebies like 'freedar' or pay for something like '360radar' ;)

Plenty of peeps on here with vastly more Intel than me, so just ask away and enjoy :thumb:

Hi

New to the forum. I live near Cheltenham and work in the aero industry and have had a lifelong interest in aircraft. I've become increasingly interested in aviation photography.

Hi everyone!
...not so new to the forum, after years of peeping I'd like to be more active!
I've been for 30 years an aviation, photo and radio enthusiast, hopefully I'll be able to provide you something from NE Italy, where I live. NE Italy means Istrana and Aviano air bases...!
Best regards!
Filippo

Good Afternoon All
I’m PARA DAVE I’m a serving member of The Parachute Regiment I’m currently at home waiting to see if we deploy for COVID 19. I am revising at home reading up on ILS approaches blar blar looking at sitting my ATPL exams shortly. The Army taught me to fly in 2015 I joined this forum as I love aviation and jumping out of them. I currently fly empty for my hour building so if anyone on the east coast fancy’s flying when I do I have a spare seat. I have 173 P1 hours logged, I am also looking for some F15E UK fs patches for my new jacket.
I love Motörhead, LEEDS United , and Spitfires.
Thanks for reading

Hi all, I discovered this forum a few weeks ago whilst looking for Mach loop gen and decided to join whilst procrastinating between uni work. Not much to say about myself, been into military aviation for a while but really got back into it in the last two years, triggered by my first visits to Mach loop.

Hey there!

Lifelong spotter, bug seems to have bitten hard again just now though, and the various Facebook groups just weren't cutting it

Cheers Paddy. The 37 in my pic is 37558, so it’s quite fitting for this forum!
