Re: thirty-thousand word trilogy

I'd strongly suspect that no, it shouldn't and won't be made public, though the thing has to be seen to be believed! :shock: :roll:

Re: Bluebird Project You Tube Channel

I've added two new clips to the BBP channel- news items from the first rivet ceremony with Gina last December.

Re: Doing a bit to help publicity for the project

I'm in the workshop on Saturday, and have no idea if I can make it to the Sunday- might depend on someone else from the team going and offering me a lift!!! :oops:

Re: A Picture paints a thousand words/Technical Talk

One for the Gnat fans then- some bloke peering into K7's cockpit while the wings of XM691 lie forlornly in the background!

Re: Happy Birthday, Donald!!

I suspect if he was still with us at 88, the nurses in his care home would have to be on their guard! :lol:

Aye, we swear at his boat and hit it with hammers and no end of other air-powered violence, but he's always up there on the workshop wall watching over us- never forgotten, that's for sure.

Re: A Picture paints a thousand words/Technical Talk

Re: Canopy

I think Bill has a plan in mind for the canopy. It's the poor sod who has to make the plug for it that I pity! I've got plenty to do lower down inside the cockpit, so I'll keep my head down and hope that task falls elsewhere!!! :lol:

Re: A Picture paints a thousand words....

Neil's recent pic' also shows in detail the tubular (?) structure running horizontally along the base of the fin. What was it's purpose? Or was it merely the grafting joint for the enlarged fin? It's just part of the standard Gnat fin- on the aircraft, that 'tubular' piece continues forward, along ...
