For the FIRST time this year, the Reds were subjected to Fuel restrictions, in many cases this manifested itself in FLYBYS instead of the mini displays that we used to enjoy!

I have to say there were several minor 'out of place' incidents at Bournemouth and one quite big one - hadn't seen them for some time and it's not what I had expected from their usual very high standard.

What is it going to be like next year with the woman on board :-o :-o

Open and Close segments take up fully
25% of the clip, but nice to see anyway.

What's "BFBS" Radio stand for?

British Forces Broadcasting Service?

Can't be that -- presenter's too clueless!

If as I suspect that Avatar shot was taken at Waddington, then how did you manage to capture it straight and level, the pilot was a NUTTER!
