Re: Big Jet TV - good or bad?

Most gliding clubs are very friendly and will try and fit you in. It's a wonderful experience. I did do some gliding in the dim and distant past, firstly at D...

Re: Concorde 01 G-AXDN

very nice memories Neil thanks for sharing them. That must have been an exciting time to work in our aviation industry.
I visited the Bristol museum in November 2017 and it's an excellent collection and the Concorde display is very well put together
