Part of the issue here is that there is an effort under way to improve the security culture throughout the RAF, tied in with the arrival of F35, RJ and other highly classified capabilities. Witness...

Not sure why you draw a distinction between Voyager and (A330) MRTT - the former is a subset of the latter. A boom-equipped variant is already in service with the RAAF. My understanding was that it...

All of which would be a fine and dandy argument if display accidents ran at one every 20 years. Sadly not the case.

Offload some drogue-only airframes to a consortium of European nations looking to increase AAR capacity and replace with new-build boom-equipped variants was the rough plan, I thought...

Acknowledging that you have no duty to prove anything, I’d still have thought that you’d welcome the opportunity to defend your client successfully against a complete and well-put case!

I think people need to relax a bit. It's not as if the current RAF flying badge is a ticket to fly everything: a 3000hr FJ pilot has to do a multi-engine crossover or the whole of RW flying training...

The southern Eurozone states have a very different perspective on Germany's contribution to financial and political stability in Europe. I don't agree with Varoufakis's Marxist views but I find his...

Why would there be any irony there? It depends on what the ODM says the stopping distance is in the intended and possible emergency conditions. There is no way that a Tornado can be stopped 'brakes...

This is key. To my mind the Tornado Force have handled this whole episode exquisitely. Events for public consumption followed by an immaculate parade, flypast and dinner to round off the aircraft’s...

Having only ever flown single-pilot I'm not at all informed on the rationale for specifying some approaches as 'captains only' for airline ops, or indeed on the timing of transfer of control. However...

I sincerely hope that other forms of ‘cognitive impairment’ than g-induced cerebral hypoxia were suggested by the defence. Mitigating for that condition is part and parcel of everyday flying in fast...

This 'cognitive impairment' would appear to be a massive can of worms not just for display flying, but for any type of flying. As AvMed courses have long drilled into us, the human body is not...

‘Has it put you off joining?’ is the wrong question; the young and carefree will certainly stick at it in sufficient number to keep the system primed for no other reason than they want to fly. The...

How do you come to that conclusion?

They are still flying this week, so those aircrew are now current until beyond 31 March. There comes a point when no more routine flying is needed to sustain...

Nice videos... in the first, looks like the two jets in the spine of the diamond are sitting forward, but you can't tell that in the external views - presumably they've been whipped there? As with...

I asked exactly this of those 'in the know' and it's to do with Marham being on its short runway while the main is resurfaced. The runway multiple occupancy rules have been tightened, which makes...

For a good couple of years before the general ban on the Mach Loop, the Tornado Force had been clamping down on unprofessional flying of the type seen in those videos. There was a small handful of...

No, he isn't. Yesterday's performance was filmed by hundreds of people from all sorts of angles and most of them are going to look 'wrong' somehow. Not only did the Tornados put in a highly polished...
