Re: BT takes Champions League from Sky in £897m deal

Re: Lightning XS422

Apparantly the engines they have in XS422 are only for ground running and will need to be replaced before it can fly, also only 1 ejector seat is going back in so no chance of taking anyone for rides etc.

Doubt it will do anything other than taxi runs to be honest.

Scum is the best word for them - people like that and those who damaged the war memorial recently should be put in the stocks until they show some respect howver no doubt the human rights people would kick off if anyone actually sugested doing that.

Re: Avro Vulcan @ Benson Air Show 1991

That display was quality I would chuck them another donation if they came out and said in 2014 we are going to do a few displays like this and then at the end of the Summer a final display somewhere to use up as much engine life as possible and then call it a day. The current display reminds me of s...

Re: SHAR ZH806

Still only £27 raised with 19 days to go something tells me this might not happen. Probably wont be long before a VC10 to fly project gets started and people start asking for money for it.
