Ive been meaning to join this forum for a while now, my Dads on here, though his username escapes me right now
Well, what to say, im Dave, 27, and a huge Vulcan fan! Though saying that, anything with our roundel on gets me going. For me though, the golden era of Sea Vixens, Vampires, Hunters, knat's etc is the best, the technological advances post WW2 just makes me a proud Brit! I do love the odd American plane, but more so the big nasty Russian bombers like the TU160, TU22 etc, and ofcourse, MIG's and Sukhoi's.
Im origanally from Warrington, but ive recently moved to Gibraltar. The week i moved out here the RAF were here for operation southern flame, 3 Tornado's took off and landed twice daily, which was great beacuse i work in the marina bay area, so can walk out the back door, and to the marina end of the runway and watch everything, made even better because the local news website published the take off/landing times to minimise boarder disruption.
Also, i was making a brew at home on Sunday, next minute, a C17 is flying past, which was really good to see, and later on getting out of work to watch it take off and land, managed to get some snaps but only had my N95 (phone) with me at the time, happy to upload them though.
Despite the relatively low Military action we see here im set on getting a shiney new DSLR from this little tax haven.
