Indeed, ATG. The elephant in the room that the Committee declined to comment upon, except in passing. It would be better if the 'Chief's' aspiration was to return UK military airfleets to...

Much the same could be said of those called up for the Wehrmacht and who invaded Russia in Operation Barbarossa. Many war crimes were committed by them, especially when they were given a free pass to...

Anecdotal evidence on this forum suggests that there might have been a reduction in engine power during the loop ascent. That may or may not have happened. If it did happen it might have been pilot...

Excellent post, f900. Shoreham has been treated, like other airworthiness associated fatal air accidents in this forum, as separate and unique. What tuc terms 'stovepiping'. In reality of course it's...

I suspect that we are in violent agreement about UK airshows. My point about airworthiness is that it is the sine qua non of aviation. Without it, no matter how well maintained, no matter how well...

I find the 75% ineligible statistic very alarming, or is it just journalistic hype? As to the 46% figure, in 1933 the Oxford Union passed the motion that "This house will not fight for its...
