Re: BEA Airbus A319?

Got the impression from FR24 last night that it was going to MAN this morning and not here, but it came to ZRH after all, unfortunately I did not! These I took using the webcams instead. http://www.shockcone.co.uk/forums/ZRH_Dock_B_112375.jpg http://www.shockcone.co.uk/forums/ZRH_Dock_B_112381.jpg h...

our local Canadian friend has been forecasting disaster in the Western financial system for over a year
Has Mark Carney got a holiday home near you then? :lol:

Back on topic, I'm hoping to see the BEA red square A319 at ZRH this year!

Re: We've all watched a lot of in-cockpit videos, but this one ...

There's quite a few of these Swiss videos and another good uploaded called "DNHug" who uploads Swiss cockpit videos. I'm always amazed/amused by the seamless switching from Swiss German to English and back! ..and having just posted that and watched this video a bit further, they actually seem to be ...

BBC soundclip library - aircraft sounds

Seemingly the BBC now has audio clips of Tridents and VC10s, could be useful for a sound pack, but maybe we already have everything we could want?

Re: Tornados return to Marham for Retirement

I thought it was "Must Replace Canberra Again" (attempt #1 being the TSR.2) or "Mother Riley's Cardboard Aeroplane" (a reference to its intention of being multi-rôle aircraft, something which turned out to be harder to achieve than thought) *-)

Re: Ruddy Traffic Wardens!!

The only driving penalty/fine I have ever received was a fine for parking in Rugby. It was just before I moved to Switzerland and I wanted to take an old chair to a charity shop. Knowing that I would need to pay to park in the centre at that time and not wanting to carry in from outside the charge z...

Re: A postcard from Paris - BEA Viking 1951

Thank you for sharing that wonderful gem, Toby! According to the 1951 timetables, there would have been three flights from London to Paris on which dinner was served: Bealine 345, departing London (Heathrow) for Paris-Le Bourget at 1930 local time; and Bealine flights 347 & 349, departing RAF North...

Sorry to hear of this Mike, hope your wife is on the mend and some normality returns to 2019 for you. I've never visited Australia, but thanks to your post, I think I've (and anyone else reading this may also have) learned what the emergency services phone number is there, should I or anyone else he...

A postcard from Paris - BEA Viking 1951

Over the Christmas break, my mother showed me this postcard sent by my great grandfather to his daughter (my grandmother), seemingly written in flight from London to Paris in 1951. Assuming the postcard was purchased on board, the aircraft would be a Vickers Viking and I believe in 1951, the route w...
