    If your car windscreen breaks do you report it to the DVLA?.

    Not quite the same is it ?. I was under the impression that all incidents had to be reported.

    Under UK rules, its probably a reportable incident, but as its a US registered, Experimental aircraft, it may not be.

    Its no big deal - Pilot is OK, Aircraft is mostly OK - no one on the ground was hurt - the system worked.

    Thanks Bruce, I was merely posing the question.

    Its a canopy, aeroplanes loose them a lot more than you think or have issues along with doors unlatching lockers coming undone etc.

    As Bruce has stated the system worked aeroplane and bits departing out of harms way, it could of happened next week next month or not at all.

    The fifth hurricane alao had a minor drama on takeoff. The port under cart was reluctant to fully retract. He stooged around for a while without joining the BofB formation and then conducted a solo routine whilst the hurricane four ship displayed. The commentator referred to the 5 hurricanes leading the BofB formation without appearing to notice there were 'only' four.

    I take it he landed safely, again the reluctant leg, see the BoB film always one leg slower to retract also seen on plenty of warbirds

    "The commentator referred to the 5 hurricanes leading the BofB formation without appearing to notice there were 'only' four"

    I normally defend Bernard Chabbert but yesterday he was grating on me, not least for claiming Richard Hillary was injured in a Hurricane!

    Maybe you should try watching the BBC Wimbledon coverage: Mark Petchey's (mid-Atlantic?) 'accent', dropping g's, h's and rounding t's and n's left me oblivious to what he was saying most of the time. It took me a long while to realise that when he said "cellar core" he was referring to Centre Court!!!

    No idea where he comes from, but as with Legends, you'd think that a prerequisite for commentary would be an ability to clearly convey information...

    Indeed he got safely down without drama. It will be interesting to find out from today's photos whether he joins the B of B fly past

    A friend has just texted me to say that a Mustang made an emergency landing in a field close to the M11?

    From reports it's intact and the right way up. Looks like it's just ditched in the field opposite the end of the runway. The one where the Messerschmitt 109 landed a few years ago.

    If you mean in the infamous inversion of Black 6 on its final flight, that was 20 years ago.....

    From a picture I've seen, it looks like a wheels-up landing, sadly.

    I can just see the Daily Mail headlines tomorrow: "Stunt pilot narrowly averts disaster, in vintage aircraft" etc......

    ...vintage jet you mean…

    Sad to hear on the tenth anniversary of Miss Velma arriving for FL07 - she'd made the same journey that Berlin Express made.

    If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

    Did anyone catch the landing approach to see if it had issues? We have also had AC misfire on approach as well catching the freshhold and bouncing up, Miss Helen comes to mind. wondered if this is the same?
