I had only just stopped crying, now it's started again.

I managed not to blub but got close twice...  Some very nice aerial footage - so good I had started to think some of it was CGI until I saw the strobes flashing.
985 posts on last forum - so I get the \'hallowed 1000\' for just 15 on this one (yippee!)

Certainly some of those airborne passing shots were very good.

Really enjoyed this - especially the footage of the people we all know and love - taff,sam,ray,rick,brownie and all. Lots of stunning airborne footage and the pilots ........... Martin, DaveT (I have the cork from the champayne bottle de-corked after the first flight - signed by DT ;D Kept in a safe place forever), Bill R and Bill P....(very attractive! >:D ::) :o ;D) Ooops!

And - the Vulcan Scrubbers got a shot too - yeah yeah!! Rock on!! 8)

Stonking!!! All my Engineer heroes on show, much deserved footage of them at work keeping her in tip-top condition.

Thoroughly enjoyed last nights programme  :D :D Well done everyone involved

As Mags wrote it was so nice to see all the people we know and shared this epic journey with over the last 8 years + flying & the roller coaster ride of restoration and back to flight.

The "Thanks' " have been said many time since she completed her last flight, seeing her last night makes it harder to believe, even now, but I smile because "We did it"  :) :)

Julia my wife is so pleased to know she/her name was on the last flight on a Certificate, after all she has been through these last 3 years it brought a tear to her eye  :'(

Just managed to watch this. Someone recorded it from 4seven which I don't get. I was away for the first showing and set to record but my recorder decided to keep on recording from the previous programme on another channel.  >:(

This would have been a great programme earlier in her life! (Not the last flight bit  :))

Stand out moment... Taff's moustache ;)

Guess what, Channel More4, tonight at 9p.m., it's on again if anybody who missed it is still using this forum.
