New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • Cranwell Airforce college in 1961

    Hello boys.

    Another golden nugget brang by your most loved froggie.

    The colours are so vivid that it is hard to believe it is 56 yo...
    It is properly incredible to figure out how many quids needed for such an addvertising for the RAF

    The buildings have not changed much, inside or out. In fact the biggest visual change is probably that women are now going through officer training. As you might expect, this brightens the place immeasurably. Cranwell is such a desolate place, it must have been a tough stretch for anyone heterosexual in the old days.

    Don't see many moustaches on pilots these days either. Maybe it became too much of a cliche.

      And here we have the USAF equivalent from 1966.

        T-38s? Surely that's 2016?

          Still a pretty good (and good looking) aircraft. But itís running out of airframe life. When I went through Air Force pilot training, I enjoyed flying a T-38 into a Navy training base where their primary jet trainer was the T-2 Buckeye. There was no comparison.

          Lots of discussion here about who will win the T-X program.

            And here's one about the non flying personnels.

              Is Cranwell to only place in Britain were someone can train to be a pilot in the R.A.F.? Also how does the Fleet Air Arm Train it's pilots? Do the Cadet at Cranwell take part in exchange vists to other service academies like West Point or the U.S.A.F.A.?

                Cranwell is essentially about Officer training, which includes more than just pilots. The best pilots will go on to fastjet training, others to fly transports or helicopters, what people fly will dictate where they go after Cranwell.

                Across all branches of the armed forces you will see a lot US / UK crossover. Since a lot of the defence industry is Anglo-American, that happens on the equipment and engineering side, as well as operational roles.

                  It should also be noted that British military colleges are not 4 year, degree granting institutions. They are more concerned with making a proficient military officer. Their courses last less than a year.

                    I also remember the movie "High Flight" was made there.

                      Does the R.A.F. permit enlisted personell to go to Cranwell to become officers?
