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

  1. Heard this on the Beeb this morning - good work by the restoration crew and also the fundraisers. Still remember one of these huge barsteward things going over me at low level at Leuchars when I was an ickle lad - very very impressive.

    Linky thing:

  2. Keeping ears and eyes open in hope it comes over here!
     
  3. Excellent news, congrats to the dedicated team who have restored her.
     
  4. My pal is up there at the moment. He reckons that there must be at least 150 to 200 vultures, sorry Press People, there.

  5. i live in Leics so i've got a good chance of seeing it! They're my favourites.
     
  6. As Bruntingthorpe is south of Leicester and I'm east of Nottingham I'm not hopeful of seeing it :(

    I remember watching a four ship takeoff during a TACEVAL in the late 70's as I was walking to school at Waddington, almost made my ears bleed....awesome.
     
  7. Great news about an British aircraft and well done to the engineers who restored it :D
     
  8. There was a snippet on Radio 4's 9am bulletin which maintained that the aircraft was last used operationally to bomb Argentinian positions in the Falklands in 1984.

    That must have been some headwind. :roll:
