    Toronto Airshow 2021

    I debated going or not going to the Airshow in Toronto over the weekend. I checked the website for the show and it only showed a couple aircraft of interest, so I decided it was not worth the 10 hours of driving there and back. So anyone attend, what did I miss besides the F35?

    educate me please on navy guns

    Type 45 destroyer armed with BAE 4.5 inch Mk 8 naval gun. How much damage could it do to another destroyer? I am just curious. I realize they use the missiles to take out other ships at longer ranges than naval gun fire. Could they do still beach landings with navy gun fire or those days over?

    I found this picture on the wall where I work. It is badly faded, been on the wall for over 20 years. Thought some of you RMC Grads might enjoy the peek in the past. It is faded and very dirty, but maybe some one remembers it.

    I am hoping maybe some one here can answer a few questions. 1) Who calls the Joint Rescue Center for help?
