Re: New Microsoft Edge.

I got the new Edge too. It took a lot of setting up in Preferences to get it working how I liked it. One thing I did like was that it had a spellchecker. This got me thinking why there wasn't one in Firefox. So I searched for info and found a box in Options/Languages needed to be checked. I looked a...

Re: Observer's badge, anyone?

I knew it straight away, as I've seen a real one. But Ben beat me to it.

Re: Swarm of helicopters

425 SQN (Alouettes) in Aldridge, Walsall. We were linked to the RCAF 425 SQN who at the time flew CF101 Voodoo aircraft (there were plenty of photos on the walls of the ATC 'hut'). I was a member from the age age of 13 through to about 18, when I had to give it up to concentrate on 'A' level exams. ...

Re: Swarm of helicopters

I flew in a Chippie from RAF Shawbury too! would have been late 70's I think. Also gained my ATC Marksman badge there on the outdoor range (we couldn't fly due to the weather so we went a walk around the base. As we passed the range one of the staff said 'hey, lads want a go on the range'. We didn't...

Something like the old transport command colours would have been a bit more regal.
That was exactly my thought when I first saw the scheme. A little garish, but I'm very proud that we finally have an official aircraft representing the UK. Other nations have similar, so why not us?

Re: Anglo French fly past.

Glad you got to see them. Even without smoke, it must have been impressive. I've watched it on YouTube. The Red Arrows look to have a sharper V formation than La Patrouille de France. I guess these are each team's standard V formation, as they will use certain points on adjacent aircraft to formate....

Re: Vale Dame Vera Lynn

I'm saddened to read of Vera Lynn's passing. She was a great morale booster for our troops in WWII and a true National Treasure. Thanks for all you did Vera and Rest In Peace. One ironic point with her song 'The White Cliffs of Dover' is that we don't have Bluebirds in the UK. I have read that the l...
