Re: Aviation- On This Day

Andy Some nice shots there, definitely on my bucket list of country's to visit. Back in 2009 Warton was quite busy. Back then this was a common sight, many did not bother taking more than the odd shot. I luckily decided to get it as much as I could. So I do have lots of MR4 shots https://hosting.pho...

Under the red star

On my build table this time I selected 2 boxes to build, I say boxes, because the second one contained 3 kits, They were from a club edition box set, featuring foreign aircraft in soviet markings. They varied in quality from the Vintage 1975 mould Spitfire Mk V to the newer Kittyhawk. They all built...

Re: Back log builds Pt 2 The Boeing SST

Round 3 of my back log build, it didn't turn out as expected. I set aside all the bits ready to start, but did a bit of painting on another back log build and finished that one instead! This has been on the table for over 12 years and is not small. This is the stage it was at before I resumed work o...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Back to 2017 at the museum, it was run day. The first to run that day was our Dak. By this time we had ironed out many of her "bugs" and we had learned that in cold weather it was good to take a leaf out of Ice pilots book and pre warm the engines. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/i23/ianfinch...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

It seems that today is a busy day in aviation history UKAR wise. I was at the museum in 2017. It was the spring engine runs after the long winter. We were not running but we came in to help all the other teams. The day prior to the runs were wash day. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/i23/ianfi...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Yes there was 3. At the time we thought that one was a spare. But I have just noticed the solo Hawk was also flown solo. So probably had nothing to do with the actual delivery.
