  1. Go for but bare in mind, it's going to need a new set of skins ($2.5-3K)
  2. RPA also do hire and fly. No doubt you'll have to have a check ride first though. Jabirus and Lightwing were available when I was last there. There is/was another school there but don't know its current status.
  3. Where I learnt to fly, thanks to RPA (Recreational Pilots Academy).
  4. The 'hangar' was so bogged we could.t move it so had to cayy bits and pieces to my trailer.
  5. The Citroen flat four rarely gets mentioned with regard to aircraft but it is a really smooth, high revving engine. Loved to work mine though the gears in it's GS form.
  6. After being stored in a trailer for 11 years due to skin rot, it was gifted to me by it's owner.
  7. Thank PF, I won't bother. Here'a my more simple instruments panel.
  8. Thanks for the photos propfarmer. Indeed it's good to see another olden reaching for the skies once again. I have a T83/4 I'm slowly restoring and now I wonder if the rear fuselage covering would be of any benefit. Comments.... anybody?
  9. Must be one of the best secrets every. When I was stationed at RAF Coltishall, I happened to help with the maintenance of the City of Lincoln Lancaster held by the Memorial Flight. Until yesterday, I had no idea of the planes history, nor queried why it is painted black. This video tell of it's hidden past. Enjoy.
  10. This being an RAA site, I immediately thought you meant RAAF Edinburgh, therefore you won't get there. Would be a nice destination for if it was open.
  11. Hmm, as clear as mud indeed. So tell me, where will my modified Thruster T84 end up. It will have folding wings, a smooth rein skin, no air gaps twix control surfaces and main assemblies so will probably be faster once airborne, somewhat heavier than the original but not much (hopefully) Will it still remain in the 95-10 category, if not what new rego would be applied.?
  12. I think you're thinking of the TSR2. Almost the same story as the Arrow, so far ahead of anything the Yanks had. Did they put pressure on PM Harold Wilson? We'll never know.
