    Some from today: ZD610 lifted by Chinook ZD575, which makes them around the same age I guess...

    Not bad work for a design that's almost sixty....and still in production.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    "Stunt" or not, it still lifted the thing.

    Chinook can only be replaced by a chinook!

    No engine (only cold nozzles installed); and very little in the way of systems.

    The new museum is looking to be an interesting attraction and the restoration of the 3-bay WW1 hangar to be applauded.

    Didn't they use a Chinook to lift and move a Meteor in Gloucester a while back too?

    Last time I saw a Harrier "fly" was in 1972, off the ski ramp at Farnborough.
    I had just got round to seeing the glass as half full instead of half empty, when some sod came and drank it......

    I thought Art Nalls was over here on a shopping trip again!
    Give a man a fish and eat for a day. Give a man a fishing rod and he'll eat for a lifetime. Give a man religion and he'll die praying for a fish!
