Re: V3 of Manfred's C47 now available...

Lovely plane, but having a problem. I keep losing power in the port engine after a few minutes and then shuts down, and wont restart again. Have I not read the manual properly? :dunno:

Re: Vanguard in old TV commercial

On second thoughts, I think it is being flown as slow as possible, hence the flap. But where? East Midlands Airport? (Where they were based.)

Vanguard in old TV commercial

Re: 3 less airfields in uk soon

I used to live in Chalgrove, so grew up with M-B's Meteors, Dakota, and of course right under Benson's approach! To be honest, I'm surprised the MoD hung on to Chalgrove for so long. In these ever increasing defence cuts, I'd have thought M-B would have moved to somewhere like Boscombe Down as a lod...

Re: Canberra to the sky!

Yeh, assuming all goes well, it's great news. I've been missing XH134 already - but I prefer the 'bubble' canopy of WK163. I think why they've chosen '163 is because it's the height record breaker, although obviously '134 is more airworthy. Of course, they could have looked at the blue T4 at Newquay...
