    But back to the thread... didnt do a lot of flying on BCal, did a 111 back from FRA, B747 (G-HUGE? Would need to look it up) to DXB (when DXB was fun),and back from ATL on G-DCIO, but that was BA by then SD

    I went to school in Langley, and every Friday as we tipped out of school the Aeroflot Tu104 to Leningrad would whistle over. I used OH-KDA as my alarm clock, and the National B747 (to Miami, or was that the Delta?) was a sight and sound to behold!!! Swissair Coronado’s disappearing in their own smoke, the fabled TAP jumbos........I could go on for hours!!

    They all look great, and I think Paul J is correct about the VC10. Also love the old BY B737’s and Air Europe machine. Do I also spy a Redcoat Brit? Golden days SD

    1/72 Airfix Phantom

    I remember nothing but pleasure in building Fujimi Phantoms and all those lovely Modeldecals (regret none survived a couple of house moves) I'm sorry to say I’m not enjoying the Airfix offering as much, but it has rekindled my interest in the subject Fortunately I have quite a few Fujjmi’s in the stash, and I will hang on to them once the 20’ container is ‘liquidated’!
