No VC? WAAAAAAAA... :( :'(

But that is of course your prerogative.

I may have to make an exception to my "VC only" rule for this though. After all what are rules made for, except to be... :Dance:

Hi Kikko

No change..still sourcing stuff and still have to work on the Laptop which is why I'm working on the Britannia project.

I can't handle the Superfreighter on the laptop properly a situation that is starting to occur on the CL-44, the most advanced of the Britannia project. :((

That was one of two that went to Templehof that day. I think it was a special charter as pics of the type there are not common except this event. *-)

The other machine was G-ANVR..both Southend based.

That's a great picture. Southend to Berlin in a Superfreighter must've been a fun and looong ride.

G-AMWA once appeared in a mag detailing the movenment for a month in Karachi. :-O

The Silver City used to go to Libya at times

Air Charter used to fly rocket parts to Womera....this was the late fifties/early sixties so they might still be on their way back 8)

:lol:

Apologies for inflicting you with one of my poor excuses for a FRAPS

The purpose of which is to showcase the excellent soundpack from Aeromusica.....Mark Cranston and Benoit Plamondon :)

I can't get any quality.....perhaps it's my 1GB RAM *-) and caputuring it any bigger just reduces it to a slide show :'(

Turn up the speakers :tunes: ..........don't watch it full screen and perhaps even better, close your eyes :lol:

In future I'll leave it to my vid guys but I can't get the latest version to them for technical reasons. :hide:
