Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. No doubt building that cost him his marriage!
  2. Look - this is a real bone question from someone who knows nothing about radio-controlled planes but I have to ask:

    Is that a proper flying model aircraft do-dah? (I mean, real jet engines or are they props in disguise?)
  3. I believe these things to be the real deal
  4. You make it sound like a bad thing rather than a bonus spin-off!!!
  5. Well that's the KURs for FRES fucked. Again!
  6. The build was featured on one of the Discovery channels.
    Didn't show it taking off, only taxiing. They'd only just finished building it so it still needed some tweaking; but yes, real jet engines, avtur etc.

    Want one of those. :)

  8. Could you put someone inside it???? Not that i'd be willing to try it!!!! Just wondering!
  9. It was certainly big enough for someone to lie down inside, not sure about sitting up.

    It needed inspections from the CAA at various stages of the build, just like a home-built light aircraft - basically 'cos it is!
