    Aviation videos / YouTubes

    We don't seem to have an equivalent thread in here to match the railways ones, despite this being a heavily used part of the forum. May I present to you this clip of a short helicopter ride around Portsmouth back in 2007?

    LNER to resume full pre-virus timetable from 14th February. Will other operators follow suit?

    I believe this is the first TOC to do so? LNER has announced it will resume the full, normal, timetable in just over three weeks from now. https://twitter.com/DavidHorne/status/1484512039699636226?s=20

    Rare sightings of aircraft

    Now this is a rare one indeed - a Libyan Government A340 ( 5A-ONE ) currently on approach to Heathrow from Berlin, so an interesting routing as well. I suspect quite a few of you have seen some of the more unusual ones like this recently ( we had a discussion about Air Force One and the...

    Television technical query

    I wonder if anyone on here has knowledge of the technicalities of modern TVs? We have a Sony Bravia and the TV guide menu on it is one where you can select an upcoming program and press a button to select it, and when it starts the TV automatically turns over to it. Or it did. That worked...

    Snooker

    Well, the snooker has resumed - but can anyone explain this new look scoring system for me? I've never seen an even number of frames before! Are we just seeing earlier stages of the tournament that would not normally be shown on TV or have they changed the system in order to get through the...

    Longest visual tracking of an aircraft

    In a similar vein to the longest line of sight thread: What is the furthest distance you have visually tracked an aircraft? A short while ago I followed a contrail that I had seen appear in the mid distance, watching the plane at the front of it ( with big binoculars ) until it went out of...

    Thursday 14th May, Channel 5 - two new railway series...

    21.00 Paddington: a year on the tracks. 22.00 The Tube: Going Underground. Both are billed as new series, but I suspect the first may be composed of clips from Paddington 24/7 that were never shown? The second I have a feeling might have been shown before although it doesn't say "repeat"?

    Secrets of the Royal Train documentary

    Channel 5, Friday 13th March, 19.00. Also Channel 5+1 at 20.00, obviously. It's billed as "new" but I can't help wondering if it's a repeat of the one that was broadcast last summer - in which case it's got quite a lot of historical interest in it but, not surprisingly, very little about the...
