  1. Leg 4: Tallinn (EETN) to Moscow Sheremetyevo (UUEE)

    Nice lighting on that aircraft - at least you had it!
  2. Mossie Plans Found

    Registering as a chairty enables them to do business but on a not-for-profit basis. Vulcan to the Sky is a charity, as are a number of different organisations that do similar things. So they would qualify under 2 and 6
  3. Mossie Plans Found

    The charity has been going for quite a while now and have the wing ribs for the aircraft and the remains of RL249 http://www.peoplesmosquito.org.uk/
  4. Marham friends and family 2017...

    Interesting display!
  5. Leg 3: Landvetter (ESGG) to Tallinn (EETN)

    Nice shots there. We've all been there regarding photos!
  6. Leg 02 - EGPN (Dundee) to ESGG (Landvetter)

    Great leg Matt!
  7. A 787's Sketchy Flight Path.

    Was for ETOPS testing on the RR Trent 1000 Ten engine
  8. Nice start to the challenge!
  9. Word(s) association game

    I can think of a lot that goes with that Tim - but all will be banned! Ambulance chasing
  10. Just looked in my Junk emails and two emails from Photobucket appeared (amongst other crap), saying I have used excessive amounts of "3rd Party Hosting". Glad now I got annoyed with Photobucket several years ago (it seems!). It started to become slow, awkward to use and just looked appalling with adverts all over the page
  11. What to expect on the ATWC 007...

    So much mayhem that the last leg hasn't been posted! Looking forward to the next world navigation. Hopefully I'll be able to do a few legs (even though sim time has been pratically 0 hours this year!)
  12. Devon Flight

    Great shots Peter. Looks like you enjoyed it!
  13. Happy Birthday Mutley, aka Joe.

    Happy Birthday Joe!
  14. Boeing halts test flights

    "This [grounding] followed the discovery of cracks in part of a low-pressure (LP) turbine section destined for one of the CFM Leap-1B engines that power the new aircraft." There's a good article (where the above quote came from) on Aviation Week Network (free registration required, which gives you a good newsletter every day of top stories) http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/boeing-halts-737-max-flights-engine-inspections
  15. Much-Maligned F-35 Seeks Worthy Opponents

    I'm always suspicious of these claims (both ways), when we don't know the exact paramteres of the test. There was a leaked LM pilot report a couple of years ago discussing a lack of energy in a close dogfight situation, against a F-15 (I think) with tanks on. However, I would guess a good F-35 pilot wouldn't get anywhere near a close dogfight situation, rather stand off and fire BVR. How often it would be required to do air-to-air combat is another matter. It was always said by Canberra pilots that they could run rings around a fighter at high altitude - until the fighter decided to go 5 miles away and just use a missile
