There are classic British aircraft routes all over the world...why just single out the USA?

I think it would be a step too far in the wrong direction, I would have thought the VA covered enough for all tastes.

Just my opinion of course.

I was thinking along the lines of once you have flown over in your Boeing, VC10, or whatever, there are plenty of routesfor the Viscount, BAC1-11, BA146. We have routes in Canada for the Vanguard so why not south of the border for the others.

You could though say that about any part of the world which is why I wonder what's so special about the US? :dunno:

We will be getting more new and interesting routes as the non-Brits come online Simon. I like flying to new places.. even in the Rapide so I'm looking forward to them ;-) With the fleets we have.. it's certainly not a 5min job to research or implement new routes but John is making good progress and has already renumbered a lot of our existing route structure to enable the new kids on the block to operate.

Well done that man :rock:

Yes indeed..

We're still in the process of finding routes, running the aircraft in, getting to grips with the new client, working at getting the Bristol Freighter ready for release.. er.. what else?? Yep.. doing paints for current releases, see below..

Gads.. there's so much to do and nowhere near enough time to do it all in :-(
