  1. That looks great, I love that old Air Canada livery SD
  2. And look at that white Galaxy in the background of the Lightning photo - I recall one year when every other display was an F104, or 2 (Germans and Belgium), or how many Canadian ones in their team? SD
  3. Oh yes! I remember that Liberator turning up that evening - thanks for jogging my memory! SD
  4. Greenham Common shows were superb. My first memory (mid 70's?) was a KC97 with a couple of USAF F-4D hanging off it - oh the joy! i missed the first Greenham show, but went to every one afterwards - and the photos above - bring back such great memories SD
  5. pleasure! 6 rides on 5 different types of the Air Koryo fleet (the IL18 is magnificent), along with photography a few of the KPAAF machines Look forward to going back, especially if we get to see an IL28 fly SD
  6. Having recently returned from DPRK, reading The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot, Blaine Harden interesting! May inspire a few modelling subjects SD
  7. An awful lot of of joy, working with the homeless for 4 days in East London for Crisis - most rewarding Christmas ever SD
  8. Thank you. I will post more photo's when I get a moment SD
  9. On the Saturday, we opened up with the single Mig29, then the following alternated with the Air Koryo fleet (IL62,IL18,Tu134,Tu154,!L76 and An24 all flying, IL18 touch and go was a sight to behold) - solo Su25, solo Hughes, Mig 21 pair, 4 x Hughes, 3 x SU25 On Sunday, started with parachute display (jumping from Mil 8's) and radio controlled aircraft, followed by 'joy rides' in 3 x KPAAF AN2, 2 x Mil 8, 1 x Mil 17 plus the entire Air Koryo fleet - there were also a couple of light aircraft I had a ride in the IL18 (lovely) and IL76 which was completely bonkers Flew back and forth from Pyongyang in the Tu154 and back on the IL62 So a modest turnout by KPAAF, but given this was their first effort, pretty good. Hopefully in years to come the will be more adventurous, and our guides were very keen to get our feedback SD
  10. DPRK SU25 - one of 3
  11. Not the best image of this machine, but the first one I could find quickly
  12. Just returned from Wonsan Air Festival, and just to give a flavour....more to come in days to follow, including Mig 21, Su25, Mil 8, H500, AN2
  13. I've asked Tony from AJ Aviation to stop selling me kits while I move my stash up to Essex - we both failed miserably at the first hurdle - after all, who could resist the Roden RAF VC10? SD - fellow kitaholic
  14. Lovely, thanks very much Fairly new to the area, so will give them a tinkle SD
