Aviation Waffle / Dunsfold Aerodrome future in doubt?
« on: January 07, 2016, 12:20:39 PM »
Hi all, saw this posted on my Facebook page so thought I'd add it here as I know quite a few of us forum'ers have enjoyed our time at Wings & Wheels over the years. Sad news if this goes ahead, I know a major development was turned down in 2009 but another application for a new town on the site has been registered, it would involve major demolition and removal of all 3 runways.

I wonder if Eddie has any views on this?

Aviation Waffle / Sea Vixen in trouble

Seems the Sea Vixen is facing an uncertain future, owners have offered her to the RN (historic flight I assume) but they need help to keep her flying.

General Photography Discussion / Old RAF photographs.
« on: January 14, 2013, 10:32:41 AM »
Hi all, my Dad was unloading some boxes from the loft and came across a lot of my Grandads (his Dad) photographs from when he was in the RAF. The pictures are from the 1920's and include shots of HMS Furious which he was on for a time, and have aircraft like Fairy Flycatchers, Avro Bisons and Blackburn Blackburns! I will attempt to scan some of these in, but was just wondering if they would be of interest to any museums or similar institutions.

Aviation Waffle / Selling of Aircraft Crash items on Ebay.
« on: September 02, 2010, 01:11:01 PM »
I was trawling through ebay earlier looking for some Mossie models when I came across an item for sale which stated that it was from a crash site in the UK. I was a bit surprised at this as I understood that relics could not be removed from military crash sites in the UK, let only the fact that they could then be sold on. Not wishing to start an argument between any on the forum who might have taken similar items themselves, was just curious to know other people's opinions on this. TBH, it doesn't really sit that well with me, but that's just my opinion.
