Thanks for the heads up - the last series was a good watch and I look forward to this one.

Navy Wings at Yeovilton should feature...

From the Warplane Workshop Facebook page...
Buckle up for Series 2 of Warplane Workshop now on final approach to More 4.
Next Thursday at 9pm you can see the engineers at the Shuttleworth Collection preparing their rare Spitfire MkV for a new season after a major overhaul.
Coming up in the next five weeks we’ll be following several epic restorations, including the UK’s only flying Hawker Tempest, capturing behind the scenes action at Duxford's legendary Fighter Collection and telling the incredible story of the rebirth of a fighter shot down in the Battle of Britain.

Fairly good effort I thought. Just a pity they have to insist on using this ‘false jeopardy’ idea all the time. Still, it was good publicity for Shuttleworth which can’t be a bad thing.
Next weeks is on the new Tempest II so hopefully that should be good.

Apparently the 1st episode was full of stupid music that drowns out and corrupts the engine noise....

I thought last night's edition on the Tempest 2 was excellent. Good to see some younger engineers getting involved and I was surprised how many sub-contractors were involved but a great final result.

Yes indeed. Fascinating to see what actually goes into such a project. Saw it at Duxford last year on static, so looking forward to seeing it fly now..Congrats to all involved.

I watched the Shuttleworth Spitfire and though it was an incredibly amateurish production

I just glad to see the background side of the warbird fraternity and just what has to be done in this type of show amateurish or not well with the watch for normal folk. But if not for the purists then watch something else.

It struck me how well edited was the Tempest episode.

I'd rather see it as it was than not at all. I actually didn't think it was too amateurish... I think it's great that there are people out there with the will to air a show about warbird restoration in he UK. Having said that, i prefer the episodes where they focus on one aircraft, rather than going back and forth between a few. However, i enjoyed the episode showing TFC in the lead up to Legends.

For me the BHHH episode has been the most 'off target' show so far! Nowhere near enough focus on the subject aircraft & too mush b&w footage of Battle of Britain archive film.
By all means tell me about the work ethic, but for Chris' sakes show me more of it being done! :thinking:

The issue with that particular aircraft is that not much was being done on it during the timespan of the filming, for various reasons.

Did anybody notice the Republic SeaBee in the background of the shots of the N3N restoration last week? It doesn't appear to have had a Permit for quite a few years.
