    by the ship wreck
  9. Hi all, Just had my old mother on the phone asking me if I could identify an aircraft she saw landing at Prestwick on Sunday afternoon. Afraid the description doesn't bring anything to mind for me. I trust it was something out of the ordinary as she was in air traffic control with the RAF and said she has never seen an aircraft like this before. Either that or she has finally flipped. She describes a largeish aircraft with high mono wing with yellow paint 'splash' on the nose and single engine/propellor.

    maybe it's Scotch mist
  11. @Scimitar It could well be Richard, or maybe it was sunlight or some other light phenomena (rare in Scotland I know but still possible). She said the wheels were brown as well which I thought was highly unlikely.

    where will it stop?
  13. @bzn20That's a simple trick, you just type the @ symbol and then the username of the person you want to get the response, as you type the name a box opens up with the matches to that name so you don't usually have to type the whole thing.
  14. @bzn20 Thanks for that info, sounds like that is the most likely candidate for the sighting.

    warning! may contain nuts
  16. Flying Bottom lets rip

    Just the latest accident with this craft though it seems somewhat ill fated. I can see cylinders of helium being removed but, as it is inside the airfield from the report, I wouldn't imagine the yokels would be allowed to get close anyway. I wonder how much 'spare' helium it would have carried as I can't imagine a cylinder or two would make much of a dent in the event of a leak.

    the centre of gravity (Which was out on the pull)
  18. Flying Bottom lets rip

    It strikes me that the 'flying bottom' is living up to it's name. I reckon they would be wise to pack it in before someone loses an eye. How did they make the Helium safe? I didn't think helium was that dangerous.
  19. Unfortunately that deepens the mystery Richard. It was around half one according to me old ma'. Maybe it was the Twin Otter. Do you know what time that landed?

    the wooden pistons burned

  22. Could be a C208 I suppose. Would need to find out all the traffic through Prestwick that particular day to discover the truth I guess. As to the North Cariboo @GreenDragon was that maybe going in for maintenance or repairs at BAE systems. Looking at the NorthCariboo website they do charters though, particularly for golf. so maybe some well-to-do folks were going to Royal Troon or Turnberry although the weather isn't exactly golfer friendly at the moment.

  25. Tut how vulgar. The phallic outline

    Very good Not quite as clean an execution as the yank but then again he didn't have the direct visuals to see whether he was on target so Kudos for his navigation skills.
