One of my flying mates just made reference to a post on Facebook about needing a group the size of an orchestra soon to fly legally!

This immediately got me thinking, what a fantastic idea.

Personally something along the lines of the Battle of Britain theme would suit me but what would you like them to play while you fly?

OK it's not an orchestral work but how about "Crash and Burn" by Savage Garden.

Possibly follow it with "Lets go fly a kite" from Mary Poppins?

Seeing as it was on last night I'd suggest Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines.

I was going for "Learning to Fly", only by Pink Floyd, but as Glyn's got that one - what about "The Great Gig in the Sky" , also a Floyd number. The only problem I can see is who's wife/girlfriend is available to sing that amazing, soaring soprano part?

This sounds like a superb idea yes . . But it might be better to wait until the ground underfoot is somewhat firmer and less muddy.

It could be a good addition to a Fly-in during the summer months.

My favourite piece of music to be played whilst flying is John Cage's 4'33". I play it all the time when I'm cycling and most of the time I'm in my workshop.

From my front room, perfectly good flying site until these recent regulations swept Europe, built up area to the middle of the river, so no more. But it wasn't that close.

Das Boot sounds good.

(PS, it's only got about 15cm to go to peak.)

Who can afford a full orchestra during Tory austerity. Lowering our sights a bit, we could get Bette Midler with "Wind beneath my Wings" lol. Cheers

If you could persuade Hawkwind to play at the field you could take the silencers off all the IC engines as nobody would hear them above their music. Went to see them once in Southend, was at the back with my fingers in my ears and was still partially deaf for three days after.

6 oz of white beans in a peasant dish, and I can lower sights a bit more.
