And 558 only has a reputation for being able to set off car alarms. No roofs blown off .. so far?

thankfully no one was hurt.

Book / Film / TV Reviews / Sea King programme
« on: March 01, 2013, 12:14:46 PM »
Excellent programme on BBC2 last night about the Sea King. Not too sure if John Sargeant's presentation style worked as well as it could...at times almost comical in the delivery and overly dry. Leaving that aside a great reminder of the Sea King's capabilities and unquestionable jaw-dropping heroic flying by its crews.

Yep, absolutely. Had the results been positive it would have been fantastic to say the least.

Just read news that Shepherd Neame have sent a crate of Spitfire ale to Burma as encouragement  - suspect that shipment predates the news of no Spits yet. I hope that they have sent back a note to say we have drunk the beer, we are still looking, need more supplies. So here we have company that is prepared to donate essential supplies to a worthy cause!

A nice piece of nostalgia. Or a sharp reminder of the capability that we have lost. Which reminds me... I wonder how the Shackleton return to flight is coming on.

Not good to read of the 787's problems.Pioneering technologies have caught aircraft manufacturers out at least once or twice before... this time Boeing are having to face the in-service difficulties. At least so far without any real loss incurred and let's hope it stays that way. Funny how only one US carrier (United) has 787's. Were the others waiting to see how the 'foreigners' got on with the 787 first?  

BBC website has a very informative image pointing out where the engines and cockpit are located. Even all the electronics being in one place? Useful stuff

All going fine thanks - and so far vision gain is looking good. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!
