    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.

    "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!
