Just saw an item on Dave Johnson (LMA) and his Vulcan on the One Show which seemed to present model flying in a decent light.

Available on BBC iPlayer...skip to 19:40

I've just seen the item.

Excellent feature and good PR for all concerned.

Very good, Martin. A bonus for me was that Chris Hoy (sorry SIR Chris Hoy) was on the programme too and what a very genuine bloke he is and not at all like the aggressive personality he adopts on the track.

A lot a familiar faces of the aeromodelling feature at Cosford, too. Including a young lad who had his leg strapped up after a football injury who was at our Ashbourne scale day on Sunday last. Sorry didn't catch his name but Tim Hooper said he'd just passed his 'B'.

That's Ryan Oakley. I was able to pass the news to him via his Facebook page in less than a minute of him appearing on TV. Clever, eh?

I thought the whole item was very positive - not belittling in any way. Not techy or nerdy - just blokes enjoying their hobby.

I thought I recognised Ryan, I was chatting to him at Ashbourne on Sunday about my P47.

Very good coverage, well done the BBC. thumbs up And of course Dave Johnson!

This link will probably work better now - the original one took me to the current BBC1 programme and wouldn't seem to let me rewind far enough back to get to the One Show. The relevant bit starts at 43 minutes into the programme.

Although the site wanted to know if I had a TV licence.

Yes, in case you missed it, as of 1st September a TV licence is required to legally watch all iPlayer content - previously you only needed one to watch live content on iPlayer.

Currently the check is just done by asking you to say if you have a licence, there was a suggestion that in future the check may be a little more rigorous!
