I absolutely loved it! Fascinating to see my office stripped down and such care taken. Very good documentary

I thought that too. A bit like building workers with hard hats when theres no working overhead going on. Throughly enjoyed the programme though! :smile:

I Think that they come under "Mandatory", for that read Health & Safety.

they arent mandatory industry wide, but they may well be in the cardiff BA hangar. I'd be worried though if I was told to wear my safety glasses when watching the thing take off, thats optimism for ya lol

Particularly like the gem about the u/c 'airflow locks the body gear in place and the pilot has to waggle his wings to lock the others'
Also re-inventing the theory of flight.
