Heard at 2153 in Knaresborough. Knew what it was straight away but astonished to hear it overland. People were going outside to stare at the sky.

The thumb wheels you refer to. Are they on the AFCS panel and are the nulls checked on the cross wire circular dial adjacent to it?

Wdowell makes a good point.

There must be thousands of German/Dutch/French/Italian etc people now in Sharm.

Does anyone have info on locations for the filming ?
The air to stuff was impressively done and I reckon included some clips - albeit "enhanced" from the 1969 B of B film. Saw some glimpses of the...

After running the video several times I thought initially that the lower/further aircraft commenced a right turn into the path of the other. However looking again it now appears that there is indeed...

Visited Manston for a night stop June 79 as part of a four ship of 705 NAS Gazelles.

Interesting photo.
I see it's 47 Sqn machine with the crane symbol on the fins but what is the significance of the dayglo patches I wonder?

Bad Elf is around 100 for the plug in version. Seems to work ok but you can get a 2012 Nexus 7 for that money.
Personal choice I suppose.

Assuming post # 5 was taken at RAF Abingdon then this is an odd visitor for this airfield. Could perhaps be an early arrival for a B of B Display (or a late departure!) as the crown barriers etc are...

The photo in post #5 looks to me as if it was taken at RAF Abingdon.

Can you seriously suggest that circa 200 cell phones can be "blocked" from around 2000ft to landing and thereafter, for about 8 days without one single text getting out to the outside world?

It really is dependent on what type of flying you intend to do AND what your ongoing annual budget is.

I used to fly an Aerospool WT9 Dynamic a couple of years back.

Very nice aircraft, quite demanding to fly accurately - have a google for it - also some stuff on you tube.
