Hi Dave, Tornado cockpit mould, I've done one at 100% size - model size that is -, if you have a go there easy to make, I made it from 15mm MDF board stuck together, frame work from thick card

By chance a local school, a couple of hundred yards away from the house, has one hiding behind a shed, its full size though !!!

A brilliant conversion, well executed, by Erwin.


Some great views while Erwin is flying his Lidl glider, then to round off a great day out a walk and cycle ride back home.

In A past life working in insurance, that involved a plan that gave coverage of one off 'fete insurance' that included aerial displays if needed, I'd love the see the schedule and premium coverage it seems high at 10 pounds for a person, when it costs few pence per hour per person.

A lot of BMFA member glider flyers have Country Cover. **LINK**

I wish things could be kept simple with real cost benefits to access to land and its use.

An air attack on Tiddim Road by No. 42 Sqn RAF Hurricane IIs, October-November 1944. Ground scenes are possibly filmed at Palel, and could include Hurricanes of No. 34 Sqn. Hurricane "Q" shown taxiing is possibly 100+ mission veteran LB710 of No. 42 Sqn. This is how looked fighter-bomber operations from airfields around Imphal: Imphal Main, Kongla, Tulihal, further to the south Wangjing, and even further to the southeast Sapam and Palel.

25 miles nearer for me.

Hi Peter, yes I saw that one on the list. I've only been there once in May 2007 and a nice place to fly, a little more local for myself being just up the A1 at 148 miles - postcode Pickering YO18 7NR .(the Great Orme is 173 miles).

Peter, a nice Hurricane by the way, I liked your comment about 'it flying on rails'
