Re: Missing aircraft

Rob
No Mode S or ADS-B information on FR24 for past year?
Might be worth contacting Pilot Aware as they do keep some logs of Aircraft movements via their various ground stations.....I think?
I'll email them now.

Re: Travel to airfield for self maintenance. Acceptable or not?

Chris....Thank You! As for being affable...a rare accolade. We get visits every few months, sometimes by Police Chopper but normally 4 X 4. Bristol Terminal is effectively closed so as you say, a good time to find and check local Airfields. Hope our Single Seat Fly In at Sandown survives. Regards Ge...

Re: Travel to airfield for self maintenance. Acceptable or not?

Well the sun seems to shine on the righteous! Counter Terrorism Border Police from Bristol Airport have asked me to meet them at the Airstrip to do normal review of Flights and Visitors over past months. I see that as an official reason to play in the Hangar on Saturday. The weather of course will b...

Re: Covid-19 Lockdown

This is not the only visual contact I have had with a BMAA or LAA aircraft flying against the general advice given in past two weeks. The other two were wise enough to keep Transponder and PilotAware or whatever switched off so they couldn't be tracked. Whilst safely airborne all is well and no real...

Re: Covid-19 Lockdown

The plot thickens as G-NICX was Squawking 4575. Southend Airport Conspicuity.
So that at least that was right. If Southend frequency was selected too why didn't they request his intentions? Maybe Southend was not manned?

Re: Keeping Current

Steve Already decided to leave from self isolation at home using self isolation in the car or walk to my Airstrip.I have a single seater so yet again comply. Formation flying will need to be at least 5M spacing! I'm willing to accept visitors on a PPR at the strip to ensure no other bugger is there!...

Re: Why do so many VP-1's fall into disuse?

Thats privileged information Mike! If I tell you you'll be shot on arrival.
You have one chance.....sell your 2 seat anti-seatism airplane.
In truth I have no idea which enclosure we will be in.
Reality is a temporary condition for me!

Re: Why do so many VP-1's fall into disuse?

Sorry Mike. Re. Sandown Fly In. Seatism is a cruel legislative action and has to be strictly upheld. I'm not condoning this suggested action but of course its possible that by mistake you could have popped into Sandown on June 13th to find a gaggle of seatism warriors parked in a segregated area for...
