    here we go off topic ralph , but if you look at warton on google earth you will see a couple of 146's parked on the apron , they are used as shuttles , the farnborough one normally goes at 7.45 am

    have you noticed if they are fitted with ADS-B ? don't suppose the nimrod's are , lol

    I have not seen any thing that comes from Warton show on the screen, but have you noticed the Lightening sat there? last time I was in there there was a small twin radial Lockheed of some description
    in one of the hangers and you would be surprised how many civil types pass through with strange pods
    under the wings, also on Google look at Blackpool the Red Arrows are there, my claim to fame is I
    am most likely the only one alive that as ever driven a live steam engine passed a Airbus wing spar that
    was being machined at the time,

While on approach to Valencia the crew declared MAYDAY and performed a safe landing on Valencia's runway 12.

    There is only 1 runway at Alicante airport.

    well so has valencia , but each runway has 2 numbers , the magnetic heading divided by ten
    eg if the runway heads due north and the aircraft lands in that direction the pilot lands has landed on runway 36 ; if he lands in the other direction he has landed on runway 18

    so when you are given the runway number you know the direction of landing [ or take off if applicable ]

    so , when the aircraft approaches the pilot then knows which direction to land in

    as you see , it means that this aircraft tried to land in alicante travelling towards the sea , and more or less the same at valencia

    if there are parallel runways they will be designated right and left

    the runways will be marked at the landing end with their number

    btw , the uplink showing activity near alicante ....is that you ?

    actually , it looks more like it is someone in ibiza with a radius of perhaps 100nm

    ralph , no I hadn't noticed that lightning sitting there , it doesn't look very active

    I did see a programme on the TV recently which showed the performance of this aircraft , especially in vertical climb ; I was so amazed at the performance of this 50 year old machine I have no memory of what the programme was about !

    Thanks that explains it.

    NO not me yet.

    Hopefully in a week or 2, I am waiting on external aerial to arrive.

    Also a cheap laptop is on its way to me today so I can do 24/7
