Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Tomorrow will be the final 9 ship flypast of RAF Cranwell then a bit of a display on return to RAF Marham.

Here's the plan for the Marham return.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Looks like the Tonkas are having a final bit of fun. 2 ship just flew over my house on the LPL 27 approach and bugged out to the South over North Wales. Next stop Wolverhampton so keep your eyes peeled if in the area.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

MoD appear to be testing that new Taranis drone again in Cardigan Bay just off Aberporth. (They have activated the danger area NOTAM).

Keep an eye out in the local papers for UFO sightings

Also spotted today is one of the the Saudi Tornado IDS which are operating out of Warton. Turned South down Liverpool Bay, over Snowdonia and had a quick blast through the Mach Loop. They're working on integrating that Damocles targeting pod they've purchased from the French.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Some of you probably know this already but the Farnborough International Airshow Public days are no more.
It's not surprising really seeing how terrible 2018's display was.

With the Shoreham crash a few years back and the additional new housing built nearby they've played it safe and now pulling the plug.


It will continue as a trade only show with apparently one public day on the friday but it won't be the same.


I'm hoping Paris keeps going and that they atleast have a better flying display for the public.

What made it worse where the idiots who took their hand luggage.

Personally these (Expletives) should be procecuted, as there actions could have cost lives.

Also lightning is highly unlikely to be a direct cause of the crash.

If you watch the news they had another view and you see the plane do what looks like a tail stike.

Totally agree with the hand luggage comment.

Utterly sick of morons with their sense of entitlement regarding carry on luggage.

Been seen so many times now where these idiots think their personal stuff is more important than someone's life.
