Try BQ Hotel

I spent a week there in August spotting.
Very close to the sea front, within 100 meters.
The hotel is stylish, clean & modern. Our room was on the 5th floor and had great views.
Highly recommend.

My view.....

Tunisia may well suffer for a few years (too long) but when the tourist industry dries up, sense will prevail and they will turn against the minority terrorists and the industry will come back. I am...

Don't worry we won't be seeing an "escort" alongside shortly.

Worst piece of electronic kit I ever had

My wife bought me this as a present, guided by my enthusiast brother.
Hated every moment of using it, it died and I was so happy.
Unusable, unreliable, incomprehensible.

What do I not know?

There is plenty I do know,but if it could be weighed it would a lot less than the weight of what I don't know.

My attempt to resurrect Russian civil airliners spying on Nato

There was an earlier request to ask for input on eastern bloc airlines covertly photographing NATO assets.

No expert but very interested

This is a topic that really interests me.
A real aviation thriller!
I'm referring to the future of the A380 rather than "841 models with Trent engines"
