Re: Canberra WT327 to the U.K.

Not only have Temora converted the TT.18 to electric start, they also got some shiny new engines for it.

As for the RAE jets hopefully they haven't suffered too much, sat out in all the joys of Californian weather.

Re: BA retires entire Boeing 747 fleet

As nobody has come forward yet with confirmation it is saved, And yes I saw the news yesterday morning.

Perhaps sit tight and wait to see who has applied to buy it. No idea who allocated which airframes to locations but maybe that is why?

Re: RAF "aggressor" Typhoon

Typhoon Force Commander said during an interview in Aviation News over a year ago they will be painting one, and that its not going to be too different.

Re: Military aircraft retirements

When do the RAF BAe146s go? I think they were put up for disposal recently. Not for a couple of years, the announcement was to test the waters and see if a market exists for them....

Re: Cleethorpes Beaufighter Wreckage

Which is interesting, as I assume its the same one that got a mention in the letters page of Flypast back in the late 80s.

I think they blew it up in the late 60s. It then got buried in the sands again over time.

I can remember them departing living just down the road at the time, specifically as I was advised they were going early.
