New desktop wallpaper there. This and the B-52 are probably my favourite aircraft.
Aye, the A-10 is my favourite without a doubt.

I like it's style

everything blanked off to buggery but with added realness with the "remove before flight" banners

The GR9AV8Z super wonder Plasticfibred Harriers may well be the dog's' danglies but the good old pointy fronted Hawker Harrier simply oozes "rightness"

I love it

That it does.









The (stylistic) rot started to set in when the the GR1s were updraded to GR3 with the 'snoopy' nose, IMHO.

The FRS1 was my favourite followed by the GR3 and then GR1 for rightness. The GR3 just looked warry and the GR5/7/9 is too rounded and wrong looking.

way back in the sixties you could see abandoned radomes off Javelins outside many a MOD property

I remember some, maybe near Carlisle Airport back then and there were definitely a pair as "gate guardians" near the Spitfire on the A38 southbound into Worcester at one time. There was an ATC Squadron based in a MOD building there, anyone remember it?

More to the point, is the place still there now?

Is the Spitfire?

Or the radomes?

They were distinctive because the were fitted on a slant to the airframe, never any doubt what they'd been on

Also had a distinctive pointed nose look about 'em too.

The picture? FAW 5 was it, pen nib jetpipes rather than the later FAW9s with reheat

I've forgotten and am wilfully refusing a quick google, much too easy

Built to Air Ministry requirement F.44/46 (which also resulted in the RN's Sea Vixen via the DH101).

A stunningly beautiful a/c, just a pity it didn't start to live up to the design requirement until the FAW7 came out.

wasnt there somehting about the Javelin where, in afterburner it had extra intakes open, which increased drag and made the aircraft slower then in non-afterburner mode??

Or did I imagine that

As an aside, when I first joined the Aston club aged 14 in 1991, I got talking to a member who was an air cadet and he was taken up in one from West Malling over London in the 50s. Imagine that!
