  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-48964736 Let's hope it is fake news... I fear all other world issues will pale into insignificance (if there is anyone left to write the history of this period)...
  2. https://www.cnet.com/news/trump-says-revolutionary-war-troops-took-over-airports-and-a-meme-takes-off/ Military History is not his strong suit...
  3. Nice on topic for the thread!!! Stir the pot...🙄
  4. For any of you in the UK and fancy a trip to Doncaster to hear the engines... https://mailchi.mp/vulcantothesky/first-xh558-engine-ground-runs-of-the-season-announced?e=7a0e93146c
  5. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-cornwall-47525635/footage-emerges-of-soldiers-leaving-for-d-day-from-cornwall Some new footage of Americans loading ready for D Day. (Re-discovered) Might be of interest..
  6. BTW who knows what the crew were trying to do, but for the kid he saw men trying to avoid him, so in his mind hero's. Either way war is about people dying and good to remember them, half term up in Sheffield so hopefully plenty of kids saw the planes and hopefully we're explained why they were there...
  7. No problems, always the media over plays things so can be a bit much. I guess BBC keen to have something other than Brexit to focus on. 🙄
  8. If you have been watching the news coverage then you should know why the fly by happened. 😉 For those who don't... A school kid in Sheffield saw the plane crash. He was in a public park where the plane might have been able to land, but they saw him so avoided it to try and find somewhere else. The kid saw the faces of the men and has blamed himself ever since for the deaths. That kid stayed in Sheffield and is now an old man and visits the memorial at the crash site everyday talks to the crew and tends the memorial. A BBC sports presenter lives in Sheffield and walks in the park saw the man doing this and eventually got chatting to him and found out the story. He mentioned it on BBC news one morning and a social media campaign kicked off to get a fly by on the anniversary. Not just for those men but for all the aircrews that died. The US aircrew stated as much on TV. A good news story showing how people care about those who died during the war. This to me was clear from the coverage I watched...
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhTbU3lO4hE Just seen this as I support the last Flying Vulcan in UK and not sure if it has been posted before. Really nice footage of the Vulcan flying.
  10. Thanks for sharing that, interesting analysis and really helps my understanding of the fight.
  11. Thanks for the update, I saw the video at game release and it was on my radar to check more closely when I had time. I guess maybe one to miss, the promo video looked good but I think it was more smoke and mirrors than reality..
  12. Obviously not for some folks 🙄 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recycling_rates_by_country We are in effect sh*tting on our own doorstep and the amount of plastic waste polluting our water is staggering. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/sep/06/plastic-fibres-found-tap-water-around-world-study-reveals But hey ho it is all down to a liberal conspiracy to stop big business making profits and declining living standards, the recent change in leadership in America has not helped... 🙄 As for less collections that is down to reduced tax return due to the world economic crisis that is still hitting the UK public spending purse as tax has not increased and so councils under pressure to make savings while still trying to keep recycling rates up. Target is to hit 50% by 2020 at 43% we are close but still put a third of our waste in the ground, compared to America 54%... Back on topic I checked my credit cards, not been compromised, but then I did not buy anything off Battlefront recently... (Not that it is relevant...) 😋
  13. It's called recycling and saving the planet, something that America (and other countries) might want to adopt... Nothing to do with declining living standards!!!
  14. Ha you assume there are test plans... It is what it is and I am looking forward to the major patch and then I might find my mojo to play some more, but like others I have had quite some time not playing, waiting for the patch... I hope SF2 keeps them afloat to do some more in 2019... Now to get dressed and see if Santa has been here... Happy Christmas
  15. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whataboutism Let's see what we were discussing? Ukrainian ships attacked by Russian forces... Pathetic.....
