Re: Historic Helicopters Open Day 9 March 2019

Arrivals and Departures @ VL

Not posted on here for a while so thought I would share some images from the Yeovilton arrivals and departures, I did not bother with the show itself but spent the Thursday, Sunday and Monday in the sheep field on the 27 approach.

Re: Sea Vixen XP924 Thread

Would it not be cheaper to acquire another Sea Vixen airframe, there's one inside the museum for example, swap all the working bits from XP924 across and start from there rather than try repairing a damaged airframe?
