Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Hubby suggests an F86 Sabre as there is one based at Duxford.

Apparently it quite regularly displays at Old Waden. The evening Battle of Britain flight-show is this Saturday and not too far from you!

Cool - but how the hell did you get into the cockpit - or is that artistic licence with a zoom lens?? ;-)

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Being nice to the staff and asking. Obviously since 9/11 you can't go in during flight but once in Paris, they said 'be quick but you can go have a look up there.'
The pilots were great too. Very happy to talk to me.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Not a plane, but just watched a Sparrow Hawk take a House Sparrow from the shed wall beside the kitchen. Amazingly quick. Prior to this the sparrows were being bullied by a Song Thrush & were eating the ants from the gravel whilst carefully avoiding the Starlings further up the garden.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

BBC

A UPS 747 has gone down just outside Dubai Airport - we were FaceBooked about it by some friends of ours who live in the Emirate Airways residences (the planes fly over their houses after take off), and saw it go down.

As most of the people who live there are aircrew or their families, you can imagine how they feel. As our friend said
Quote:
The crew of the UPS 747 that came over our villas and crashed 800m from us are heroes. That is something that I wish never to experience in my life again. It could have been so different. God rest their brave souls and my thoughts to their families at this time.
RIP.
