Re: How many 707's in this photo?

I think there are 3 : 1 TWA , 1 BOAC beyond the VC10 and 1 PanAm this side of the VC10. The PIA aircraft I think will be a 720B

Edit : or could it be 5 with 2 more BOAC on the far top left ?

Re: A new hobby for Toby?

It is said , I believe, to be a fake , and when you watch it IIRC the entry into the aircraft looks inherently unlikely

My parents had a friend, Martin Hearn, who was a pilot with Cobham's circus and was a pioneer of wing walking. Absolute lunatic !

Re: Rolls-Royce Bug

I had the doubtful pleasure of reading, in full, the Dutch report into the crash of the Malaysian 777 which was shot down by Russians.
