1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Everything's allowed, Cars/guns/boats/planes you name it.

    I promise I wont judge you :D

    Personally for me it's got to be the Supermarine Spitfire. View attachment 94422

    Interesting to see three planes in the thread already. I think the P51 Mustang is lovely too but I do love the Spitfire. I have an original Spitfire AM brass compass in its case with a picture of the pilot sitting on his Spitfire in 1942 holding the very compass. Was a great find.

    Yeah, I heard a story once that the Concorde wasn't too well received in America because of the sonic booms, Then when they finally got to see it in the metal for the first time they gaped in awe. Fantastic machine.

    Yeah. Have you heard the quote Mr Goering said about the Mosquito? He knew a good plane when he saw one.. Even if it was RAF!

    I was lucky enough to fly in an Air France one once years ago, very narrow inside and quite loud compared to modern airliners. They used the same engines as the old Avro Vulcan which sounds like a she elephant when it takes off.

    As you said guns are allowed I also vote for my HW100 custom rifle sold this week. Below. Sad to see her go, tears will be in the eyes on Wednesday when it is collected by a forum member.

    That's great, Could be from one of the Maltese bound spitfires. Yeah I did think about the P51 but it lacks the soul factor for me.... If that makes sense?

    Yeah when I was young I heard the Vulcan howl first hand. It was one of the only aircraft that looked as menacing on the ground as it did in the sky. You've got to respect the aircrews of them back in the day. Especially those in the Black Buck raid.

    I spoke to the pilots son and got the background and photo from him. His father flew recon Spits out of RAF Benson.

    Just a quickie for the plane buffs. If you didn't already know, the other surviving flying Lancaster is coming from Canada in August and the 2 will be flying together with a fighter escort at various shows.
    Regards, Stu.

    I saw the last flight of one at North Weald when I was a wee Air Cadet on crowd line duty, the noise was incredible.

    I love planes, had a look around the inside of the City of Lincoln, which I take it is the other flying example ?
