Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Our carrier strategy is in less of a mess than the BBC article that tried to explain it ... What an awful, garbled piece of journalism that was. Why the hack couldn't just stick with the common Type-A, Type-B, Type-C convention widely used over many years for the Conventional, STOVL and carrier variants of the F35 is beyond me.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

They're stupid if they go back to the f-35B variant.. the weight addition and reduced payload/range/agility and the distinct lack of super cruise is really bad.. Most of the industry experts have suggested that this so called 5th Gen fighter is nothing of the sort..

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Pretty sure I've just been over-flown by a pair of F-22s, though I have no idea what they would be doing around Loch Lomond. The camera's never handy when you need it ...

There's an exercise on at the moment Chris, I think this just about covers your area

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

That exercise wouldn't have F22's participating.. More than likely to be doing practice for Joint Warrior which is a major exercise taking place on the 16th to the 26th April off the Scottish coast. Be aware Chris is that if you have a GPS you may find problems with it during the exercise if you live far enough north.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

My bike GPS was going haywire (locating satellites) the other day when we were out on the trails but this was down near Chester and I wouldn't have thought any jamming activities would affect this far South.

OMG, how are people going to manage? Nobody has maps any more

Actually being serious my drivers carry very few maps. They have a Smartnav system, and a Garmin as a backup

An AAIB report says that there was a fuel supply problem which caused the crash in July last year.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Interesting, if it ever happens:
Quote:
British and Burmese authorities could work together to find 20 Spitfires buried in Burma at the end of the World War II, officials say.
The planes were buried in 1945 by the RAF amid fears that they could either be used or destroyed by Japanese forces, but in the intervening years they have not been located.

At the time they were unused, still in crates, and yet to be assembled.
