    They had one at RIAT on static display, some of the crew were having a bit of a sunbath on the wing. You missed out if they float your boat that much!

    You have to be worried about the guy near the end playing guitar on his L85... not a good place to put a gun muzzle really.

    What is it with crew types? Even when I've been to portsmouth half the Navy was out sunning themselves on the life boats. I think I'm going in to the wrong job.

    I like any four engined jet [use, even Nimrod!] and the 707 is no exception. Add a massive radar on top and we're onto a winner!

    I think both the Sentry and the Hawk are both pretty boring aircraft that do things that plenty of other aircraft could do :p:

    Although saying that, the Sentry is the only AWACS in the RAF, so I do want to get on it at some stage

    Not surprising really given the sizes of the two aircraft, and that the Tornado is very much a 'Dogfighter' as an afterthought more than through design

    Going to Farnborough on sunday, can't wait to see a GR4 in flight at last!! They have one on show at an airport near me, since seeing that I have always wanted to see one in the air!

    Of on a tangent now, Im going to visit a squadron (27 Chinook) on monday (couldn't do a base visit at the moment due to being busy with operations etc...)

    Should I be dressing up, or would a pair of smart shoes, dark jeans and a plain T-shirt be fine? Will be lasting about 2hours.
