    2019 Halifax Show

    I did comment to the wife that there is a big difference travelling to Halifax rather than Huddersfield- even though the distance between them is not that great. Sales reps & van drivers have often been surprised by it. I have avoided the Hebden Bridge area for years!

    2019 Halifax Show

    Hopefully as a resident of Halifax I can offer some help. Area used by the car boot is a massive former railway sidings and scene of a famous photograph "Catchpoint " by Bill Brandt. Car boot clears off lunchtime. Plenty of on street parking which is definitely free, Sunday, on Corporation Street cos I checked it tonight - but it's a walk. Wade Street out of Sainsbury is good & free with big bays unlike Sainsbury. One way turn left, followed by Mulcture Hall Road. Big carpark behind the "Dean Clough" sign might be free on a Sunday - around Jack Wills but check the signs. If you have uninterested guests Dean Clough, Piece Hall, Square Chapel, Bankfield Museum are worth a visit. Enjoy the show!
  3. This week's edition -worth a look. https://jpcvanheijst.com/amazing-aviation
  4. Where I found it. No Haynes titles in Smith's or Waterstones.
  5. Or mine for his exact words, but he did mention all the work on the refuelling probe before it went fixed.
  6. Bought my father Haynes Buccaneer book for Christmas as he worked on the flight test development team. Speaking to him the other day, he went on about all the work that was done, for so little carrier time! One of his jobs was painting the tyres white, prior to a test flight, so that the tyre manufacturer could work out loadings.
  7. Sea King helicopter transformed into glamping pod - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-37791901 Rather unfortunate I thought.
  8. 2 Hurricanes over halifax today 5.4pm ish. As I am not up to speed with Internet tracking has anyone any further details?
  9. For what it's worth nikon only charged me £32 inc carriage for removing dust from a zoom lens. Quick & simple service. I paid by PayPal & have my work address set up as a delivery address so it was nice & easy.
  10. Found myself a bottle of diet ginger ale today in M&S Corton Wood. Which after a whole week of waiting for Asda Halifax to be restocked was quite a relief.
  11. In the media people go on about not using Adobe products, as they are now subscription only, ie monthly payments but PC World sell them for a single payment so I am confused. I am trying to get a program called Luminar to work on an Apple computer, bought off a work colleague. Presently stumped by Apple & I think it's because I have not bought it new. Colleague is getting it back on Monday to sort it out!

    I was into flying models and always remember a copy of Aeromodeller magazine with "Power Crisis Issue! "added to the cover, from the early seventies. Might still have it!
  13. Drove past the entrance to Scampton a number of year's ago & it looked dilapidated then, so I think it always was going to happen. Surprised by the closure of Linton, as a North Yorkshire lad, the sound of those Tucanos is constant in the week. Plus saving 3 billion over 22 years ! ?
  14. Miles Messenger looks ace & I wonder what the low wing monoplane is? (Just before the Dakota shots)
