Anything that might get remotely smokey is about five stations behind you so if it gets hot where you're sitting you've not run away quickly enough!

The later, light brown bottles use something different to the green ones but I'm pretty sure the green ones are filled with BCF. That's Mike distracting me again. The carbon-tet bottles were up inside the Vulcan, I think. Know we've seen them somewhere. Will have a proper look tomorrow.
The BCF Bottles I dealt with were a Matt Green colour, about 300mm high, say 120mm diameter. Mounted inverted. Made by Chubb, I think... not sure.

The next gen on were BTM and were Bright Green.... Like Kermit.

Seeing the pictures of legs sticking out of K7 reminds me of the rubbish I have had to do with the electrics of the Jaguar! More pain and suffering today due to broken wires.. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I have a couple of questions regarding today's POTD and the one on Wednesday. Firstly, is the new seat and harness a permanent installation or will Donald's original seat be going back after the proving trials? And secondly, seeing the unfinished tail fin in the background on Wednesday's POTD made me wonder if it will be fitted for the crew training on Bute in August? I guess it's not strictly necessary for low speed runs. Thanks.

The copy of Donald's seat will be put in for museum display-the harness is already authentic. And yes, the fin will be on for Bute. (In fact, it went on this afternoon!)

Seeing the harness reminds me of when i was at Popham aerojumble (which is on, on monday) afew years ago, there were 4 NOS sets of those harnesses,£25 each. Was going to buy them but had the finance manager bleating "What on earth do you want those for? Put them down & don't waist my money!!!" :(

Did you get an original radio to fit?

On the subject of the harness, and in fear of been labelled some type of idiot, while I know its new and will be excellently maintained there have been a few instances of them failing to release in some powerboat incidents. While not expecting Ted to ruin all your hard work but perhaps one of the more foolproof lever type for testing and then those beauties for display?

I knew the harness would get people talking! Ours works beautifully, and that's it.
