The log-in issue has now cleared for me (W10/Avast/Firefox/Chrome/Edge). I would like to hear (on 'Computer connection issues') of anyone else still having issues.

Re: WTF is happening in the UK?

We either live in a free society where all have the right to have their own opinions, within the bounds of civilized stricture, or we are not democratic (no pun intended). I give huge credit to the Met for their approach over the weekend.

Re: The Day the Mucic DIed...

In 1993, I flew jump seat in U2's aircraft from Cardiff Wales to a maintenance shop in Bournemouth. The band had a concert in Cardiff, and the aircraft was scheduled for some maintenance, prior to their departure later that week, in Bournemouth, a short hop from Cardiff, but one I will never forget....

Re: The Day the Music DIed...

Why aviation and the sometimes "irregular" nature of a musician's life are sometimes not a safe mix. The statistician in me just says, musicians fly more often than most, and often with rogue outfits.

Re: Missing airman’s ID tag found in Egyptian desert, 81 years after crash

What an interesting, if poignant story. I am delighted that his ID tag has been recovered and that he and his crew are remembered, and thus in some small way alive again, at least in other's minds and hearts...

Ask this man. Retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel James H. Harvey III, 100, boasts many military honors to his name. Harvey was one of the first African American fighter pilots with the Tuskegee Airmen, the famous World War II military aviators who opened doors for Black pilots in the U.S. He ...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread V

Ozzy Osbourne gave up taking acid while the recording of Black Sabbath's Volume 4. He said, “I took 10 tabs of acid, then went for a walk in a field. I ended up standing there talking to this horse for about an hour. In the end, the horse turned round and told me to **** off. That was it for me.” E...
