Re: red squirrels 04-05-2019

I haven’t seen a red squirrel since the 1970s in Switzerland, when they were tame enough to run up my trouser leg to take food from my hand. By the way, if you like a good tongue twister try the German word for squirrel Das Eichoenchen!

Re: Hong Kong Queries: G-RDAS, Hong Kong General Aviation

Planebase does have a facility to request updates, but it needs c/n as well as serial/registration so they can validate.

Re: Hong Kong Queries: G-RDAS, Hong Kong General Aviation

When I get a chance, I will log in to Planebase and see what it shows as being based in HK. It should be possible to filter out the airliners.

Re: Kemble 01/01/2018

I went today. A mighty long way from Kent, especially as the AV8 cafe is closed for repairs, but worth it to see the smart 727, the Chinese 319s, and the sad looking Turkmenistan 717s.

Was the Air Corsica A320 F-HZFM on 8 Feb part of this invasion? ADS-B suggested en route to EDI.

Re: Photo editing software

The free one I use is PhotoScape, and it does a really good job.

Good luck with whichever one you choose.
