Seems an expensive way of scrapping aircraft, but fun....

In partnership with Peter Baldauf, from 'Peter's Aircraft Factory', we have made available a FREE flyable model of Lightning422. It's made out of A4 paper, so all you need to do is just print off the templates and follow the instructions in the manual below on how to build it. You will need some scotch tape and glue too, but the idea is to have some fun, while we are all stuck indoors. The model is FREE to download but if you would like to help support us return Lightning422 back to flight, please consider making a small donation below. Have fun and stay safe!

A French A400M has made a couple of visits to Auckland International from French Polynesia this week. Friday's departure included some enthusiastic wing waggles :-) Beats the next several hours of boredom over the South Pacific.

A really good interview with an RN F-35 pilot. Very interesting. The Navy do social media and engagement a thousand times better than the RAF, honestly.

EVERYONE does social media better than the RAF (a handful of accounts excluded - Cosford, Lossiemouth, etc)

No lament for the Sharkmouth scheme from me. Its had its day. I wonder if there's any nose art on the port side. Or if there are any plans for any, either side. Looks good though!
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires
