Re: What have forum members been up to?

Hi Guys, thought I'd call in on the anniversary and wish you all a happy new year, and congratulate the team on the amazing work. Been a few years since we were up there with a biscuit tin in tow. SWMBO has been keeping me busy over last 6 months - she's going to finish her revamp of her old outdate...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

None of this Landy idea makes sense, it's quite, quite mad, but I need to get past it and move on with my life... :D Dreadful is an interesting comment - landy fans go quite weak at the knees about 300TDi's, and are all scared of electronic TD5's. I have, however, located a mint matching numbers (a ...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Hi folks - this is my occasional drop in to say hi and see how you all doing. Can't believe it's been a year since my good lady surprised me with a trip to the big tin thing! - Apologies for not making it up and helping, but I guess life and looking after olds gets in the way sometimes. At the risk ...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Last ever wingover over land maybe.. I guess if they want to play with it one last time they could do it over the sea, but I doubt it'll be off Whitley Bay... :( Strange weekend for Sue and me watching this unfold, awful to watch two old jets go down in less than a month. Rumours are that all air di...

Beware - anyone of an engineering disposition should not watch.

I've seen some ridiculous things in my life, but this salvage is the worst.

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

As a few of you fine gentleman who showed us the big tin thing already know, Sue and me like surprising each other with events and experiences. This weekend was my turn I took Sue to carfest north. At 2:00 on Saturday afternoon we sat like statues in shock with a motionless forkful of hog roast when...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Hi team. Hope you all had a good start to the year, but where the hell did January go? It appears we're kitchen fitting for the next month, so I'm becoming expert in hanging heavy lumps of MDF onto flimsy plasterboard, or more accurately abandoning that idea and fixing large planks of wood to batten...

Happy Birthday to Me...

Well that was an unexpected Birthday present - just when I was starting to feel guilty about the amount of Bluebird (cars and boat) pics around here, my good lady surprises me with a copy of Patience. I was never sure about any prints of the big tin thing in it's resting state, but this is such an b...
