As a project, it is "the most exciting", the others are certified flying examples.

Hope it happens, because I am happy that the Draken and Viggen are flying, though not much chance of me seeing them either.

Re: The People’s Mosquito

I hope I am wrong, but take the example of the Blenheim - how much of that return to flight did you see in the papers? Exactly. It is just as important historically as having a Mosquito back in the air but they managed it with next to no national coverage and (I would have thought) raised most of t...

Re: Railway tracks

I vaguely remember, as Brian said, years ago, we used to get annoyed if the train passing coincided with a taxying aircraft, which in truth was not often.

I've not seen anything running on it for a few years, and the only reasonable link I could find is this

But possibly the engine (a Baldwin) is being restored at Porthmadog.

Okay, as we're bringing up the past - ML407 flew for the last twelve months of World War Two, but I don't think that will affect it's current situation either.

Well I went to the IMAX in Waterloo today and saw this again, and thoroughly enjoyed it again - I think the other guy who made up the rest of the audience liked it as well. 479 seats and 477 spare.

This is a fabulous film which I saw in January on an IMAX screen, narrated by Harrison Ford and with such profound statements as "from an aeroplane one can glimpse more than most of mankind has ever seen in a lifetime" brings home the impact that aviation has had on life. Man never normall...

Re: Duxford September Airshow 2016- 10th and 11th September

Duxford is also limited as to their maximum capacity for shows being allowed only to 22000. By selling advanced tickets, they have a tighter control on access than pay on the day attendees.
