Interesting series
« on: February 26, 2017, 07:29:24 AM »
Those of you with Netflix should take a look at "Plane Resurrection", it's a series of 6 shows on bringing back 6 historic warplanes from the scrap heap to flight.  It is a fascinating combination of technical talent and history.

That would be a long walk for me nevermind the water! One day though  I'll get over there I'd like to see some of the steam exibits. The Canadian Avro Arrow is the one I'm interested in, If you get a chance to see the movie it is a good watch or atleast I think so.

Any one watch 'The flight of the Key Bird'  ?

Interesting but very sad.

Dave.

May be 'Kae Bird'

I've never heard of it I had to look it up. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kee_Bird  You'd think they would have put more care into the fuel lines!
