Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

I'm entirely in agreement that it is a terrible waste but, rather than throw everything away in a futile melodramatic gesture, perhaps the aircraft might have a brighter future if the relevant resources were directed towards: a) Finding a suitable home where the aircraft will be looked after properl...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

No missile - only a right royal bollocking at the other end Don't forget the inevitable arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators and their aiders and abetters; also the fact that it would be hard to carry out speaking engagements from a prison cell. Then there's the prospect of a further crackdow...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Really sad that it should end up like that... :( :( It's terribly sad but they'll just sit there and do nothing. Just imagine the uproar if they actually did choose a quiet news day to sneak in there, fire up the old girl and blast her to Conninsby to formally donate her to the BBMF. The story woul...

I'm with Bill on this one. I can't see this as serving anything other than one man's vanity.

Re: Richie's Little Tank

I agree, it was all a little too obviously stage managed but IMHO you are being a little harsh in some of your criticism of the tank itself. If JCB "weld, not rivet" then they probably no longer have the facilities do carry out something that isn't relevant to their core business. I'm sure the skill...

Re: Looking for opinions on an Autograph

I was interested in this item so I contacted the seller on eBay to ask if he had any authenticating evidence. This is a business seller with 100% positive feedback and I don't for a moment wish to suggest that he is knowingly attempting to pass a fake off as the real thing. He stated that he bought ...

Re: David Tremayne's Stay Gold

As I understand it, the UK record for terminal speed of a jet dragster is a smidgin over 336mph. That was achieved at Santa Pod, which is an awful lot shorter than Elvington.

Is the choccie sauce on internal panels just for corrosion protection ?
I was just about to ask the question: Why do you need sealant on that piece? More trouble than it's worth, surely?

Re: Warby's Spirit of Australia II

I can't add anything to what's already been said, except that I can't wait to see that boat fulfil its potential.
