    Scratched COMAND front fascia plane

    Got my car home, and was so caught up in checking the outside - missed a deep scratch across the COMAND unit. Is this addressable, or can you get new fascia plates? Thanks Brian

    The Plane That Saved Britain

    I know there are a few aviation enthusiasts here so thought it worth mentioning that Channel 4 are re-running the program about the De Havilland Mosquito that was first shown last night on the 47 network tonight at 8pm. As well as the history element it includes some good contemporary colour...

    Jumping out of a Plane...

    There is the mile-high club… and then there’s the club of those few that have managed to make more take-offs in an aircraft than landings… The premise is simple, you start with a perfectly good aircraft, without any known faults. You reach an altitude of several thousand meters/feet; open the...

    My new r/c plane

    For various reasons (moving house twice, getting married, baby, etc. :D) I've not built a new r/c plane for over 3 years. Test flew this one last night on a small patch of grass next to my back garden! It's a 'profile scale' Yak 54 designed for indoor 3D aerobatics (where most of the...

    Just flown an r/c plane in my living room

    Well after 33 years of flying r/c, what would have been science fiction only a few years ago just came true - I've been flying a plane in my living room (which is a very average size ... we don't live in a barn conversion or anything!). Take off from the floor or sofa, cruise around, and land...

    Hole in Qantas Plane Forces Emergency Landing

    I don't think I would be as calm as these passengers here but may be the one ordering a very large malt from the cabin crew... Looks like the outer skin has come off just where the fuselage and wing join together.

    Good plane pictures

    I sometimes pop onto to look at the latest and greatest of those things that manage to take lots of families thousands of miles in very short order for their hols. I am still amazed how they can get off the ground, physics in action. I digress though, here are a couple of photo's...
