    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I read a book by an airline pilot who answers public questions and apparently it looks much more dramatic from the outside than it does from the cockpit. We'll have to take his word for it though! Also "landing" in the news this week, arrestor hooks just aren't cricket, old chap: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-hampshire-45863698/navy-f-35-jet-trials-rolling-landing-on-aircraft-carrier

    The Doctor Who Thread

    Still processing ti a bit; it wasn't exactly an absolute classic of an episode but it did what it needed to do - though I wasn't expecting the ending to take quite the turn it did. The real bright star was, of course... well, the star. It feels like its going to take a bit more time for her to find a settled role (arguably, it took Capaldi a whole season; no reflection on him as an actor, I just think it took time for the writers to settle on... pardon the pun... who he was) but at absolutely no point, right from her entrance, did I feel "This isn't the Doctor" [1]. I need to hear it a bit more, but initial impression is I like the latest reworking of the theme tune; arguably its even more old school than anything from the Moffat era! [1] And just so I'm not misinterpreted, no I don't mean "...because shes a woman". Thats never been a concern of mine; its the character.

    Much as I love the YF-23, I somehow doubt that the Japanese are going to go for a resurrected one either.

    Oh, yes... "F-35 can't land on carrier because it will melt the deck"...

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    After inviting proposals for a successor to the F2, Japan has rejected them all (upgraded F-15, F-22 with F-35 avionics and Typhoon) and has decided to develop its own fighter, though possibly in collaboration with international partners - this could be good news for the UKs recently unveiled "Team Tempest" project.

    Wow, I didn't know they'd actually started on HMS Queen Elizabeth yet! (the huge "cricket score" display panel on the island structure was the giveaway!).
  9. This may not mean much in the US, but Carlos Ezquerra, one of the most well known artists to have worked for the UK SF anthology comic "2000AD", has died: http://www.denofgeek.com/uk/books-comics/60846/judge-dredd-co-creator-carlos-ezquerra-dies Ezquerra is probably most famous for his work on "Judge Dredd" (having helped co-create the character with John Wagner) but his highly distinctive, tyre-tread outline style was also seen in "Strontium Dog" and a great many other works in collaboration with other well known comic book creators. Theres a lot to choose from, but my pick for his definitive work would be "The Apocalypse War", which can be found in "Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files Volume 5".

    I saw an An-124 at the Yeovilton airshow in the UK a few years back. It almost seemed like an airship going over, it just seemed to "hang" in the sky.

    Ace Combat 7

    TSR2 is a good pick, David!

    Well, for one mission. And then someone lobs a Genie from a Voodoo...

    Ah, apologies, didn't see the "See More" link and the relevant text was hidden beneath that. Will go and fetch food for the rest of the division as punishment.
