Nope, not me a Russian IL.2 powered by an Allison and under-going flight testing and 'yap' about them wanting to bring it to FL/DX. But pending the flight testing going to plan and no more 'nerve-agent' incidents fingers crossed.

Seen this morning at RAF Museum Cosford DH 98 Mosquito TA639. Also included that vile sign board because there simply was no red and white road cones anywhere.

After seeing the posts by the 'Boss' of memorials he has come across during the last few days, thought I'd show you a memorial project I'm involved with this week at Loughborough Uni. It's a bench which will be 'fixed' over looking the American football pitches at Loughborough University this Saturday. The bench is a memorial bench for Alan Scott a former student at Loughborough and was a member of the American football team 'The Loughborough University 'ACES' . Alan Scott 32 was also Flt Lt Alan Scott RAF who was killed with is friend in Afghanistan in June 2015 when the RAF Puma aircraft which he was part of the crew, was coming in to land at base and struck a security balloon cable which wrapped it's self around the rotor blades with tragic results. I have the honour of giving the bench three-coats of 'danish teak oil'. Over the years I've laid tributes at various memorials but never thought one day I would be involved remembering a hero and I'm honoured to do so.

Did the Goodwin Sands Do 17 have a rear-fitted 'flame-thrower' installed on the aircraft ?

Noe it's been established that Marcus is now a '20 minuter' and not a member of the Women's Auxiliary Balloon Corps, may I request he has a 20 minute 'sniff' to see how this project is going in Canada ? Me and my Dad saw this being restored by Windmill Aviation at Spanhoe yonks ago before the project was sold on ending up in France and Later to New Zealand and now Canada with HF Aerospace. This is Hawker Tempest ll MW376 and they have an engine for it too or so I understand possibly at the Macdonald Campus McGill University Montreal. Wish my Dad could see this.

It would appear that 'The Victory Show'is going ahead 1/2 September 2018. If you remember last years flying display was 'pulled' after the display area was deemed un-workable by certain acts booked for the event and that was that. The CAA were brought into question and much 'finger pointing' was done in their direction. B
ut lets hope all parties share common ground this year and for good weather and low wind speed.
