The sad demise of the forums

Post by PeteT » Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:38 am

Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of the last post that was added to this thread.

When I started my research about five years ago, the forums were an excellent way of learning about new subjects or for supplementing information gained about aircraft losses, crews or airmen. Information was grouped together in a thread which could be easily accessed and found again at a later date.

Nowadays, social media provides the point of access for enquiries, with requests posted all over the place and, if you ever want to find the information again, it is nigh on impossible.

...... so, just a new post to mourn the sad demise of the forums
