Mach Loop

North Wales. Youtube has loads of clips from there. Wonkabar's are some of the best. 


Beelady, I think it might be F15s you see. The F14 is the Tomcat US Navy plane form Top Gun. 

Still whats one digit out between friends?

Was a few years ago,

around 1984, I think. Used to come across where I worked as a shepherd and part time tomato grower. Was a big thrill every time it happened. I thought they were American, from the markings and because I watched Top Gun so many times (not because of the actors, although Val Kilmer was quite yummy.....sorry.Got sidetracked for a moment) so that's what made me think they were F14's.

Whatever they were, I would shamelessly wave both arms and jump up and down with excitement. Wish I could relive that a few times :biggrin:

my fav fly by

was by the A10 Tankbusters when i lived out in the sticks,in the Fens, often used to think they lined my house roof up for a mock bombing run.......once got buzzed by one of the feckers when i was on my m'bike on a banked road, swear to god he was that low he waved at me clear as day.......and i am sure I could see him pissing himself laughing as I nearly shat myself..:shock:...well it's not the sort of thing you normally have to look out for on a ride out !!..

..also used to be near a stretch of river that had "Dip Headlights when Ship Approaches" signs along it, not your everyday hazard...:blink:

Is it right the last flying Vulcan has...

now been grounded as there is no money to fix it?How about some of the BILLION and odd ££££'s the NATIONAL Lottery has yet to allocate to good causes?More chance of it going to a group of Lesbian Tortoise groomers in Outer Mongolia than being used for something that is part of our history.Shame,awesome plane.We have XM655 just up the road that does a few runs up and down the runway several times a year,not the same as seeing one in the air though.They've made a lift testing tower in Northampton a listed building,despite it being the ugliest concrete stick you've ever seen and pour money into preserving it(English Heritage I believe so tax payers money)yet stand back and let a unique piece of our history be reduced to the odd trundle out to blow the dust off a runway.
