  1. Just come across this on the Pathe site..

    Farnborough 1961...

    FARNBOROUGH AIR DISPLAY - British Pathe

    Some really good colour footage of the SC1 and and the HP115 research aircraft..

    A great pity we botched the lead we had in aircraft engineering after the War. We really did let the Air ministry and civil servants piss away the huge advantage we had at the time..

    Stunts like.. let us have five prototype heavy bombers built and keep three! Or let us take the most successful satellite launcher in history to full development.. and then throw it away!

    The thing that makes my p1ss boil is that they are still at it...

    Heerumph...

    Anyway - enjoy the film..

    Catch the Falcoons jumping sky blue TUs and doing "precision" downwind landings... some things never change...
