A further review on the posting of military aircraft movements has been ongoing by the moderators,it has been decided to make some changes.
These have been made to give more people a chance to see the visiting aircraft,we would ask that members share any information they have sensibly, and responsibly for everyone`s benefit.

If any member has anything they want to ask or suggest, please PM one of the moderator`s and wait for a reply.

ANY MEMBER THAT WANTS TO JOIN THE MILITARY MOVEMENTS SECTION,CAN DO SO BY PM`ING ONE OF THE SITE MODERATORS.

Military aircraft are not of interest to all,and that is why it has been decided to restrict them to those who are genuinely interested.

From now on,ALL MILITARY MOVEMENTS into/out of Northern Ireland Airports are to be posted only in the restricted MILITARY MOVEMENTS SECTION.

Mil Movements posted in the general forum will be deleted.

Anyone who is not a member of the Mil Movements section but has information to post,can PM one of the moderators to post on their behalf if they wish to.

NO MILITARY MOVEMENTS ARE TO BE POSTED IN THE GENERAL FORUM,that includes inbound and outbound flights.

Military overflights that are not landing in Northern Ireland have no restrictions,and should be posted in the OVERFLIGHTS section.

Only post if.....

(i) You are happy to be ID`d as the source of the information.
(ii) The source of the information is not classified, or restricted in any way.
(iii) The aircraft in question is not regarded as sensitive.eg (AF1, Stealth, Special Forces etc)
(iv) Avoid posting if the aircraft is classified or restricted. (IN WHICH CASE THE USER IS POSTING ENTIRELY AT THEIR OWN RISK)

DO NOT post detailed routing of the aircraft in or outbound.It is ok to give a basic compass direction such as W,NW,NE etc.

DO NOT ask operational questions in the General Forum about the US military aircraft using BFS -they are purely for fuel stops,and or crew rests and nothing else,despite what some may try to suggest.
If you wish to ask operational questions,please restrict them to the Military Movements section,or use the PM feature to ask.

If you wish to post photographs of the visiting aircraft,it is strongly recommended that you use a watermark to protect your image rights,and you may also wish to consider posting the photos in the members only section.

If possible provide a LOCAL ETA (ie time at BFS Aldergrove or other location) PLEASE DO NOT use ZULU time as it can cause confusion.

Anyone posting up info, must not be interrogated or ridiculed about their information source, or questioned about it`s reliability by other members.
All information posted is subject to change or cancellation, so if it does not happen, put it down to experience.

At all times, the moderation team reserve the right to moderate any and all posts, if, in their view: the post contravenes any rules/guidelines of the forum, including those listed above: places into question or disrepute the reputation of the forum: or can be seen to be irrelevant to the discussion taking place.

We hope these changes are clear to all.

The Moderator Team.
