  1. I’m liking that little lot, superb collection SD
  2. The amount of gold bars is now dazzling! Awesome!!! SD
  3. Been twice and a truly superb collection. Don’t recall the Hughes helicopters and suspect the KC97 I saw was not this one. Brings back memories seeing this little lot, thank you! SD
  4. Cool, and thanks for sharing, This is the kind of place I love visiting, and would really enjoy that little lot SD
  5. Lovely photos. Visited Haifa in 2018 and indeed most of the preserved aircraft have gone - shame! SD
  6. Alpha Delta 210 has inspired me to order a photo scanner....need to dig the prints out now! I worked at Greenham one year (Phantoms?) on the Celsia models stand, did several trips to London in the Luton collecting the newly issued Matchbox Victors - sold like hot cakes! I was just happy to spend 4 or 5 days on the airfield SD
  7. Lovely collection and such happy memories - I loved the shows at Greenham Common May well invest in a scanner to digitise all my old prints...was just looking at a load of shots of TTTE Tornado’s at Cottesmore, seems like yesterday, not 1982!! SD
  8. What a lovely selection of photos, thanks for posting SD
  9. Totally agree with that - I find modern aviation (military and civil) all a bit sterile. I love reminiscing about the 70’s,80’s and 90’s...... (My alarm call when I lived near LHR was OH-KDA piling out every morning around 0600, and the Aeroflot Tu104 on a Friday whistling over school as we tipped out - low enough and big enough reg under wing to read off with mk 1 eyeball)
  10. Absolute magic, happy days indeed. I remember a Greenham Common where there were loads of F104’s, mid 70’s, I guess Great video, Mrs SD just asked what was making me so happy and why the broad grin?....doubt she’ll ever understand such things! SD

    Lock Down.

    Recently moved from Essex to Geordie Shore - fortunately, never seem either....am I missing something important? Doubt it! SD
  12. Discovered 4 AlleyCat Lightning conversions in a cupboard, so took advantage of Big H selling Lightning F2A’s at a 3rd off...will start carving them up after stalled projects are finished....Airfix Phantom and Revell Tonka, then the Airfix Bucc which isn’t stalled but just subject to my usual glacial pace....oh, and the decorating that Mrs SD has allocated me...
