      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Some of you asked to see both the Gene Hooker Vanguard and Airways VC10 side by side, the photos show the comparable size of the two aircraft which the Vanguard is not that much smaller than its neighbour

Wonderful !

 

Thank you for posting the comparative photos of the Vanguard next to the VC10.  As you say, the Vanguard was a surprisingly large aircraft.

 

How about a Viscount to complete a trio ?  Go on, you know you want to !

Hi Don, yes the Viscount is on my list as is the Viking, but probably will have to wait

Amazing vac form, never known if you didn't say. I still have to practice the panel line streaking like that. I'm glad you parked the Vanguard next to it, I have the Vanguard unbuilt and I know how big it is.
