  • ''The accident is attributed to lack of understanding between the two pilots because of the failure of the co-pilot to use headphones.'' Ooops.

    G-KEST of this forum may well have one, if such a thing was printed. He wrote the following on PPRuNe in 2003

    There was a time,(in the 'modern' preservation era ) when there were not twelve flying Spits in the whole country, never mind one hangar !, I am guessing early Eighties perhaps. RAF had four, two at Booker, Old Warden, G-AIDN, Doug Arnold maybe, and a few others.....

    replied to Well Done Shuttleworth
    I do agree, the PR Spit performance was really good, almost constantly curving and turning. The display as a whole was imaginative, and I especially enjoyed the energetic 6 Pitts race. For photography, the light became a bit flat ( no one's fault) ! ) , but the flying as a whole seemed slightly...

    The FSM Lanc assembeled at Hood looked pretty good ( in the few photos released ) . I recall a number were rumoured to have been created in China, and presumably are still around.

    The Problem of Bullsh@t NOTAMs

    This lively piece very much chimes in with my thinking in the last few years. It describes a servce, which on first impression you might think is conceived for your protection,but now seems to be mainly operated for the protection of agencies who spam the system with superfluous detail, for their own...

    That is my impression also. I think people are discouraged by its clunky, frustrating operation, hence a fall in contributions, and a decrease in readers, which feeds back to a further fall in contributions.

    I hope it does not become a death spiral. I am at a loss to understand why...

    I remember reading the awful news in the paper next morning, and feeling shocked and numb.

    Mark was an inspiration, and one of the best, but of course, he had a great mentor.

    Flying legends was about 10 weeks ago, but that scorching weather is a VERY distant memory, and today was ,frankly, a bit of a test of endurance, and I would have slipped away mid afternoon, has it not been for the Spits.

    The lineup was really good, and all the performers did a very polished...

    replied to HJ711 got one turning
    I suspect that the only way forward (into the air ) might involve a newly constructed Glyn Powell fuselage, and maybe a new wing /tailplane, which is pretty much the whole airframe, so really you might as well start a new project ( as have the People's Mosquito team) and leave HJ711 unmolested.

    Fantastic video ! Flames flickering in the half-light, the gusting wind, and the shrieks of delight......wow !

    22 years since a Mosquito fired up in the UK. It's been a long wait.

    The facebook 'experience' is OK, up to a point, but is slightly incoherent, and shapeless, and does not easily present the 'issues of the day' in a chronological form. In this, a forum is far superior. With FB you end up hanging round in some narrow- interest club, whereas Key Publishing is like a free-wheeling...
