Exercise Magic Carpet 05 (MC 05) was an Omani hosted and RAF Strike Command sponsored exercise. The exercise was an opportunity for RN, RAF, Omani, French Air Force, USAF and USN squadrons to deploy and practice heavy-weapon bomb drops, utilising the extensive ranges and relatively clear airspace available over Oman. There were a variety of aircraft which took part, including our own Sea Harriers, GR7s and SKASaC, USN F18 and S3 Viking, USAF F16, French Mirage 2000 and RAF Tornado F3, Jaguar, VC10 air to air refuelling and E3D AWACS. In total around 60 aircraft were in theatre, allowing for realistic exercising of a coalition forces.

Crop formation, Cheesefoot, Hampshire

Crop formation at Cheesefoot, Hampshire, England. Crop formations are patterns of flattened plants in crops such as wheat or barley. They started appearing frequently in the mid-1980s in south- west England. Their cause is unknown. Many theories exist, ranging from science-based physical explanations such as the "plasma vortex" theory based on the phenomenon of electrohydrodynamics (EHD) to unorthodox suggestions that they are created by extraterrestrial intelligences.
