Turkish F4E 'Kara Sahin'

Like a few others I've turned my hand to building models during lockdown for the first time in 30 odd years. Here's the Italeri F4E kit with Two Bob decals. Not to the standard as other on here but getting better. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50167396207_44376d4c84_c.jpg Turkish F4 KARA SAHIN...

Gatwick Aviation Museum - Saudi Lightning event

Long time, no post. Gatwick Museum had an event on Saturday to show off ZF579 in it's engine running splendour. A fantastic museum that really deserves a visit. The Lightning ran up on both engines with no known issues. The Bucc is due for a complete strip down taking 3 years. Enjoy. https://c1.stat...

Re: Middle Wallop Night shoot 7 Nov 15

It is, as far as I know, now owned by someone associated with the Historic Aircraft Flight Trust (the civilian organisation that used to be the AACHF!) Who that person is, I'm not sure - but it seems to have been living in the HAFT hangar for some time now, hopefully being restored to airworthiness...

All gone a bit quiet on the new lens. Anybody know a release date? Sure I saw 20th October somewhere. No real reviews yet either.
