    Talking to somebody just now about the Argosy - a plane with "it's own noise" and no serious vices.

    I did the Pennine Way in 1979 and I remember walking past that site and then down over Kinder Scout which as I remember it also had a few wrecked aircraft scattered about. (I was walking it North to South with the theory that it would be downhill all the way. The theory proved to be questionable .. :shifty: )

    Knowing the sad story behind it is heart rendering, especially at this time of year.

    Four take offs and landings a day and flying at 150 feet for the drop !!! … all those involved definitely deserve a tip of the hat. :welldone:

    Whilst Gatwick Airport installs the multi-million pound Israeli anti-drone system, Birmingham Airport looks at bringing in the cheaper Argentinian system:

    Serious question, if a drone can take down a plane why don't birds when they go through the turbines? Sounds like misdirection to me.

    There can be significant metallic lumps in a drone that you don't get in birds, they may have issues with windscreen penetration, etc.

    There does, though, now seem to be a debate about whether anybody actually saw a drone there at all...

    ...even suggestions that it might have been a kestrel viewing a mouse...
