The transmitter tower we can see from around the #avebury / #ridgeway area #wiltshire. It's actually located in the ground of what was #RAF Clyffe Pypard, from here are views looking out over the Ridgeway, Hackpen Hill, Cherhill & Furze Knoll
Clyffe Pypard - as well as being an ancient village situated on the White Horse trail between Broad Town & Cherhill (more of which I shall have to post) This here was a former satellite airfield used in between 1941 - 61. It is now farmland but a few things remain...
a subterranean HQ, 4 Mushroom pillarboxes, a machine gun range, a hanger + more, worth a respectful visit - for more info, a brief & interesting video -

🇬🇧 Let's review all the excruciating minutiae of the Royal Air Force's flights to Ukraine 🇺🇦, and potentially imports of more lethal aid from the United States 🇺🇸 to the United Kingdom.
Follow me down the rabbit hole. 🧵
(very long 🧵, will take breaks)
First, I take an inventory of the 8 RAF C-17s and where they've flown in the past couple of weeks. It takes at least days to organize a shipment like this.

We know the following aircraft have delivered lethal weapons to Ukraine; let's work back from that

This is a great tell that comes up frequently. 👇

When watching for any kind of arms shipments, pay close attention to whose airspace is used.

1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)
2El padre de la criatura era el ingeniero William Edward Willoughby "Teddy" Petter, quien había trabajado previamente en numerosas aeronaves de la firma Westland, como el #Lysander, el #Whirlwind o el #Welkin Image
3incluso trabajó en el proyecto para mejorar el #Spitfire corrigiendo cierta inestabilidad del diseño original

Tras ciertas desavenencias con la dirección de @westland, en septiembre de 1944, Peter se despidió y se llevó consigo los trabajos para la propuesta B1/44 Image

Chennai has been worse severely hit & these are lessons learnt from #chennai floods & rains 2021

Nature is the most powerful force in the universe.

Prayers stay with you if you invest in them.

A positivity mindset is key to survive hard times.

People help each other out when there is time of need!

Manual labourers need to be treated with much more respect.

The city requires a lot of work and only depending on the government is totally absurd.

#RAF La démarche du courant dit de l'écologie politique consiste à mettre en avant les problèmes, certes bien réels, posés par le réchauffement climatique lié aux activités industrielles ou la production d'énergie nucléaire. Cette démarche leur a apporté un succès sur le plan…
.. électoral, dû à la sensibilité d'une partie de la population à ces problèmes, mais aussi au fait qu'une partie de l'électorat, déçue de l'expérience des gouvernements de droite comme de gauche, est tentée de se tourner vers un courant qui affirme poser les problèmes…

#BREAKING:The busy airbridge between #UAE & #Afghanistan now.02-1109, a C-17A of #USAF's 62nd Airlift Wing with 500 to 800 Afghans on-board is about to land in Al-Dhafra. Next to that a #US State Department Dash-8 is coming from #Kabul while a #USAF's B-52H bomber is going there.
A C-17A heavy transport aircraft of #RoyalAirForce with ZZ171 serial number is now headed toward #Kabul, #Afghanistan to evacuate #British citizens. If I don't mistake, that's fifth or sixth of such a flight. That means, #RAF C-17s are also evacuating Afghan nationals.

🇬🇧 Considering the sources who suggested the Russians or Syrians were jamming #RAF A400 GPS, it probably shouldn't have been published; but the British press have a lot of tabloid clickbait trash, so here we are. There is no sign this is any different than the past several yrs.
🇬🇧 Sowing this sort of truism would be the sort of thing a propaganda campaign would do, and coincidentally members of the British military have bragged about their capacity, and willingness, to manipulate the press when it suits their narrative before.
I'm not sure this story comes from "journalism". No dates, times, specific flights, or specific planes were identified, and none of the info shows sign of being fact-checked with any external sources. There are open sources which can verify the RAF narrative, but nobody bothered.

Die gezeigten #Reaktionen bestätigen mich darin, dass man seitens der #rechtsextrem|en den #Mord an #Lübcke und andere Formen von #Rechtsterrorismus als legitim betrachtet.

Ich stelle mir die Frage, wann man dies auch endlich politisch ernst nimmt.

Und damit meine ich nicht in Form von #Angstkultur & #Entrechtung, sondern damit, vielleicht mal 1% der #OSINT der #Antifa nachzugehen...

Ist ja nicht so, als seien deren #Recherchen streng geheim...
Deshalb eine #UnbequemeWahrheit:

#Antifa ist der bessere #Verfassungsschutz!

Das @BfV_Bund sollte sich schämen, dass #Ehrenamtler*innen weit mehr #Verfassungstreue beweisen.

Believe it or not, the Batman is real. Well, it’s more like a man who was the Bat. This character was beloved by those who knew him. While the story of Robert Douglas Lancey starts in the woods of NH, #OTD in 1944 it takes a dark turn in the unlikeliest of places. A #WWII thread. Image
On July 20th, 1941, Robert donned a crazy costume at @camptakodah. He looked like a cartoon bat. His job was to surprise the campers and have them chase him. But, no one could catch Robert no matter how hard they tried. He was too fast, too good, and too clever to be caught. Image
Robert, a dedicated Boy Scout and respected summer camp leader, with a distinctive long face and a “pug nose,” would go on to win a great many personal challenges that he faced well beyond the sanctity of a place that truly is “friendly to all.” Image
