Very nice article on ELINT missions in the Cold War

My compliments for the nice article on the Cold War ELINT missions near the Iron Curtain in the 1950's-60's, as can be found in the latest paper Scramble. Very nice to read about these kind of hidden/forgotten operations. As aviation news is 'hot' on the Internet, but already 'cold' when the Scrambl...

Carriers in the bay of Hyeres (2010-06-13)

A lot of ships were in the bay of Hyeres on Sunday. Unfortunately, the weather turned gray when we were 'at sea' (as it did at the crucial moments on Istres and Orange 1 day later) :?
