    I thought that the CAA and some possible operators where in discussion as how to achieve the exotics operation ? (Ref: the possible continued operation of XH558 not long after the last flight.) Admittedly it was a while ago now and no news has surfaced so I just thought the wheels just...

  • Hi All,
    No! One other moan is the Mk's of Spitfire and 109 are not correct, again this being programme is linked to the RAF100 you would have thought authenticity at least to the type of aircraft ?

  • Hi All,
    I just wish that documentaries would get aircraft right i.e. RC BOB Model SQDN series (BBC) that has lead historian James Holland describing the BOB as it happened. While he narrates about the Hurricane SQDN shooting down German aircraft you clearly see footage of a spitfire...

    Hi All,
