    replied to PARNALL PANTHER
    I think thats the same sheet twice? Well done though, the Smithsonian couldnt provide the documents. They said they were too delicate to copy. Its not like them to not provide copies of what they have without good reason.

    I would add that the original manufacturer will also have to agree to the alternative provision....

    British & Colonial built the majority of the Parnall Panthers. Ive had access to their archive and there is no mention of Spanish Panther orders or deliveries. Do you you have a primary reference for Spanish Panthers?...

    The chances of having UK civilian operated complex jets has, and always will remain zero. Amonst many requirements to maintaining, operating and flying such types is knowledge, skills and access to serviceable spares for the type - plus a lot of money.

    While I cannot directly answer your question, I can tell you that the ailerons fitted to the CLA 4 are doped silver with a dark blue paint being used for registration - possible roundel blue.
    I know this cos I own them.

    The small size of font and large width of the page requires expanding the page to be able to read text. That in turn requires much scrolling from side to side to be able to read it.

    Unfit for purpose!

    replied to Hunter PP-XHH
    I remember the aircraft at Halton. Most, but not all, of the Hunters were bought back by HSA between 1971-2 for rebuild to fly. To convert an F4 to a T bird required a new fuselage forward of the transport joint that sits near the leading edge of the wing where it abuts the fuselage. Thus it is most...

  • Certainly an explosion can result if water cooling is used too aggressively on hot brakes, hence dry powder is recommended as the first response. However, when there is fire, a fine water fog can be applied from fore and aft of the undercarriage assembly. The various airport fire stations that I attended my annual...

    Not just S&G. All the other UK published Gliding publications too. Excellent repository.

    It would be a disappointment to do all the required work only to have the copyright owners send you a solicitors letter!...

    replied to The Aeroplane magazine
    Back in 2004 I wrote to the publisher of Flight to suggest digital publishing of the early back-issues. Because I never got a reply, in 2005 I wrote again on the subject and added that the centenary of the magazines first edition was approaching and that it might be a good way of honouring the occasion. Again, no reply. We...

    British Library and The National Library of Scotland.

    Not ‘public’ but accessible is the set at RAF Cranwell. Another set with the Shuttleworth archives, and I know of one complete set in private ownership in the UK.

    Edit ... ISTR that the bound copies at the NAL Farnborough have indexes.

  • Stan, Is the cracking in 10-2 cases or a mixture of models? Is the cracking in the same area? I ask because in my RAF days it was was said that cracking was due to the use of cartridge starter. In civie life we did what the RAF refused to ... welded them with an approved scheme. Upshot was that we inherited perfectly repairable en...

    ‘avion-ancien’s’ memory of events with the Reed Group are much as my own, and I suspect the ‘Schneiderman’ has the guist of the present state of play. Digitising and placing images online is doable; making a business case perhaps less so. I wonder if the existing copyright holders all...
