Cardiff Airport Aerial view
If you like aircraft, then this could interest you.
I had a career in aviation and have worked on, and even flew, many aircraft types.
Both rotary and fixed wing, fast military jet and wide bodied civilian airframes.
Cardiff International Airport [CWL] and St. Athan are my local aviation hubs.
I created the forum thread as I still have that interest in aviation.
I still miss the smell of 'avtur' and hydraulic oil. Lol
Check out the following posts:
I hope you find them interesting! :D
Here's a couple of images to whet your appetite.

The most recent post is regarding the crash of an RAF de Havilland Vampire on the 16th June 1954.
In World War II thousands of planes crashed in the UK.
Not all losses were combat: many were flying accidents due to factors such as bad weather, pilot error or mechanical failure.
129 aircraft crash sites in the South Wales area have been identified.
These have been sorted, duplicates erased and other non-military crashes removed and a further 59 new site records created.
176 aircraft crash sites (terrestrial, intertidal and maritime) are now represented within this thread.
Distribution of aircraft crash sites across South Wales
Aircraft crash sites are a tangible yet enigmatic reminder of the massive changes of the 20th century.
They embody the futility of modern warfare and the potential for instant destruction while demonstrating the technological leaps seen in aviation during the course of the century.
And revealing the history of triumph and disaster.
Providing a memorial to the air crews and the stories behind the final flights of each aircraft.
They have long been the subject of enquiry for many different groups of people, and this has often resulted in the depletion of wreckage from the sites.
Each military aircraft crash site is designated as a Protected Place under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986.
Any intervention on a site requires a license approved by the JCCC Agency of the MoD.
Licenses will not be granted where human remains or unexploded ordnance are anticipated.
As this thread will be finite, I will be posting it in the Community Centre's Polaris Library.

Vote Recommendation: Against

Vote Recommendation: Against
This resolution seeks to commend Ladyrebels for their consistent commitments to the South Pacific during the formative years of the region. The commendation largely chronicles events that occurred 17 years ago, when LadyRebels was part of an organisation which couped the South Pacific, but then chose to defect and restore the previous government of the South Pacific. It goes on to point out how they helped to develop the region's politics and the region's diplomatic standing.
While restoring democracy to a region is a noble act, the author's case beyond this single act is flimsy at best. While internal cultural events and diplomatic ties are indeed notable, and laudable, two isolated events with no detail involved and no examples of what came of diplomatic relationships does not make the nominee, in our eyes, commendable. Their efforts after the restoration of the government were short-lived and had little impact in the long term. The author attempted to make the nominee appear commendable by adding clauses that express little information in reality and attempted to link defunct organisations created by the nominee, such as the Defence Force of the South Pacific, to the present government of the South Pacific. While historical nominees have the issue of time erasing the sands of their accomplishments, not every coup resister in the early days of the game is commendable - even after a detailed look at their resume. This is but one of those cases. For the above reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote Against the Security Council Resolution at vote, "Commend LadyRebels".
