ON THE COVER
Who said jets have no character? They can't have seen an A-10 Warthog, this being Andy Johnson and George Murgatroyd's twin gas- turbine powered version. It was scratch built by John Menhemett and flown by the pair at the Liverpool and District Model Aircraft Club's Battle of Britain Day in early October 2016. The 10ft (3m) span model weighs 65lbs (29kg) and was certainly one of the highlights. You'll find our full report from this great fly-in starting on page 14.
