B-29/P-51 Actual WWII Footage


Rocky: Agree YN, I still wonder why they fly a 92-seat aircraft with 122 on board though. The TNI have a terrible record with C-130s. Jul 2, 2015 13:40:54 GMT 11
Engines: New thread up on Sea Vixen..... Jul 2, 2015 6:18:46 GMT 11
Blofie2: PLAN's lengthening legs HERE Jul 2, 2015 6:05:23 GMT 11
dav3469: Good morning, and Good Evening to you Mr. Engines and YN....... Jul 1, 2015 19:37:19 GMT 11
Youngnavy: The C130 thing is dreadful though...so sad when a big aeroplane goes down. Jul 1, 2015 14:18:17 GMT 11
Rocky: Hi Blofie, the C-130 was not one of the ex RAAF lot. Jul 1, 2015 13:03:15 GMT 11
Youngnavy: )))}}thb((_1 Jul 1, 2015 11:21:17 GMT 11
dav3469: Duxford I have done.. It was great! To be honest, due to time constraints, I need to go back there as well. Jul 1, 2015 11:18:58 GMT 11
Youngnavy: After you have seen the one at Yeovs...I suggest Duxford is your next target :D Jul 1, 2015 11:16:12 GMT 11
Youngnavy: Judging by the quality of your photo's, I think a trip to the RN FAA Museum could be your best way of seeing how the Brits do a great museum. Jul 1, 2015 11:15:38 GMT 11
dav3469: I will do so. I have several LHR trips over the next couple months for work. I am hoping to break away and get over there, even if just for a few hours in the afternoon. Heathrow area pub food and staring at the walls is getting old.... Jul 1, 2015 11:11:15 GMT 11
Youngnavy: When you are there, ask after David Hobbs. He spends quite a bit of time at the Museum and he knows more about carrier aviation/the RN FAA than anyone else I know. He is a thorough gentleman. If he is there, please pass on my best wishes Jul 1, 2015 11:07:57 GMT 11
dav3469: Ha, yes..... don't want my mates soiling themselves. Jul 1, 2015 11:05:47 GMT 11
Youngnavy: Remember the English drive on the right side of the car. Meaning you need to use the correct side of the road. :) Jul 1, 2015 11:04:54 GMT 11
dav3469: Thanks for the insight... Jul 1, 2015 11:04:53 GMT 11
Youngnavy: M25-M3-A303...follow the signs approaching Ilchester. My guess is 2 hours drive time...depending on the M25 orbital carpark traffic. Jul 1, 2015 11:03:43 GMT 11
Youngnavy: Train is really easy, but then there are issues involving cabs and buses. Best to get a cheap hire car and scream down the motorway. Jul 1, 2015 11:02:26 GMT 11
dav3469: For those in the know, can you estimate the realistic drive time from London Heathrow to the FAA Museum at Yeovilton? Or would it just be all around easier to hop a train? Jul 1, 2015 10:54:32 GMT 11
Blofie2: Thoughtful op-ed re NZ defence white paper HERE Jul 1, 2015 6:07:07 GMT 11
Blofie2: Was the downed Indo C130 one of the ex-RAAF lot? Jul 1, 2015 5:07:08 GMT 11
