Having lived in Blackpool for 21 years, I know only too well what can happen to Vulcans left outside Airports.

Any chance to save her, GO FOR IT!

Like I say, I'm sure there's a valid reason for chosing this one above the PR9.

In fact, I applaud the restoration of another Canberra.

I'm sure that the trust would actively support any future owner of the PR9.

I think it's great news about the Canberra.

I'm sure that there's a valid reason, but why this Airframe as opposed to the PR9 that was recently restored?

I bet not more than one other person on here knows who Jack Hargreaves was!

I also bet the other person lives in Bournemouth and supports the Red and White stripey team!

I liked the way they cut out the swearing while he fitted the piston rings...

I remember Out Of Town and that theme tune...

To paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi, "television from a more civilised age...before the dark times."

Which one of the documentaries is it?

It looks like they're repeating everything else but that.

I agree, it's a perfect companion to the PlanesTV release.

To see the technical issues they encountered was fascinating, and the aerial footatage is breathtaking.

I bought my Blu-Ray from the good people at East Kirkby, here's hoping it helps to get another Lancaster airbourne!

Book / Film / TV Reviews / Knock Out Kaine - Cruel Britannia
« on: March 22, 2016, 03:44:41 PM »
Well, it's 2016 and so far it's shaping up to be one we'll remember for all the wrong reasons.

Our old girl's retired, we've lost Lemmy, David Bowie, Keith Emerson and Glenn Frey. Status Quo are hanging up their Telecasters and Fish is looking to retire by the end of 2017. The world of Classic Rock is looking very bleak indeed.

There is hope, however. Our good friends Knock Out Kaine are back with their new E.P. Cruel Britannia.

Coming just a year after their monumental second album, Rise Of The Electric Jester, the four tracks here show the fantastic potential of a band that means serious business.

The opening track, Cruel Britannia, is a firing on all cylinders, storming hard rock anthem. The humourous yet brutal lyrics, delivered by a brilliant performance by Dean Foxx, are a no holds barred attack aimed at the government and big businesses. The virtuoso guitar of Jimmy Bohemian soars over the top of the thundering rhythm section of Lee Byrne and Danny Krash.

Love The Way You Hate is a singalong classic. It's complex yet solid rhythms showcase the band's acoustic based side.

Going Down, from the album House Of Sins, has been given a complete overhaul and highlights the band's versatility.

The last track, a faithful cover version of Steve Earle's classic, Copperhead Road is a master stroke.

With a new album already being planned for later in the year, it's exciting times for the band. Let's hope they start to get the recognition they so richly deserve for all their hard work.

The E.P. can be ordered directly from their record company. The price of £5 (plus £1 P&P) is a very reasonable.

It reminds me of the time when the BNP were handing out leaflets which had a beautiful picture of a Spitfire on it.

The image was so beautiful you could see the Polish Airforce markings on the nose.

D'OH!!!

I'd expect that from the BNP, but not BAE Systems!

Another disgusting display of "trial by press".

The newspapers should keep quiet and let the authorities do their job.

Is the magazine the same as the one from 5 years ago?

If so, I bought it back then and got the free DVD.

Well that was a wasted journey!

They'd sold out at the Ely branch of WH Sh!t!

I asked the shop "assistants" if they were going to get it back in stock, and was greeted with an unresounding CBFI!!!

And they wonder why they are losing out to Amazon!

Is there a publisher's web address so I can try an order it online?
