Re: Hi There

Welcome to the group hope you enjoy. I too have fond memories of my grandparents taking me to airfields as a kid and I am also a birder (though very amateur, I can tell he difference for the easy species but panic when I come across a warbler (I believe its all about there song)). :D

Cromer/Northrepps 9/6/16

Stopped in while driving by and found

G-ERMO ARV Super 2
G-CDAC EV97
G-CBWJ Thruster

All sat on ground, but with the runway being mown, airfield usually being inactive during the week and Caister Castle car museum being my destination I moved on.

I knew the new SAR helos are being based, but didn't put that together with the new hangar. :roll: Thanks for helping and sharing a bit of knowledge. :)

Re: Serial request 1/7/14 (Yellow rig helicopter)

Thank you very much, another new helicopter operator, guess they will be needing the new hangar that they are building on the airfield. I wasn't far off, read it as OO-MNG. Thanks again.

Serial request 1/7/14 (Yellow rig helicopter)

Hi guys Looking for help, had a great day at Humberside watching the comings and goings but it was one of those days. Made two visits, one AM and one PM, on the first visit just missed a 100Sqd Hawk blow through and there was an Orange/Yellow S-76 or similar with a light grey serial which was oblite...

Re: What a waste

How about this to pull the punters in Hull/Grimsby airport sounds like a thing of beauty!! Fact is if demand was there the airlines would be too, no catchment area and very little money in the area means that this is the situation. I think its good that the airport is there bringing jobs to the area...

Re: What a waste

Surely the point of Humberside (similar too Aberdeen and Norwich) is that they are only really there still, as they service the oil industry. As you say the small cachement area for the airport would make it unattractive to airlines. As with any spotting trip its a trade off between distance able to...

Re: First ever flight

Am guessing no-one has a shot hence the "no replies" buddy. But if you just want replies, I dont have a shot of said flight, sorry fella. An idea next time you fly is maybe to post before you fly as regulars may not be interested in an everyday Lufthansa flight etc but if they knew you wanted a shot...

Re: When is a half not a equal half

One more time, anytime when half is used and the object isnt divided exactly by two it is an improper use of the word and you should be using the word parts. Something divided into two parts is not always in two halves. Just because there is a corruption, of the use of a term, does not mean this the...

Re: When is a half not a equal half

Its not like man on the moon, that is up for discussion and am a big believer in only believe what you are seeing. But one day a mathematician split something into two equal parts and that process is half. the 1/2 number that represents half means 1 divided by two. If you divide 4 by 2 it will alway...
