Not sure if this is quite the right place for this, but mods please move if not.

I have several hundred copies of Aeroplane Monthly magazine that are too good to bin. They go back to the 1980s and are free to a good home. Collection only. I'm in the Croydon/Bromley area. PM me if you might be that good home and they're yours.

A free classified ad (see the green stripe) will be more likely to find them a home.

According to the news, a big Antonov flew over the south Bradford area between 8 and 9 am on Sunday 17th, must have been quiet cos I missed it, however, early evening on day before, something heavy flew across which gave the impression that the Vulcan is alive and kicking. Didn't get up to look but anyone else saw it?

Regards Ian.

Hi all, yesterday 24/06/2022, upstairs, windows open, I should point out that I am the son of a WW2 Merlin engine fitter & that sound is embedded in my dna, I heard one approaching and sure enough moments later a Hawker Hurricane came directly towards me, low down flying North, South, I bathed in that magnificent roar & as soon as it passed over I shot into the front bedroom & watched it until it disappeared, I always say an unexpected sighting is a bonus!

Only sound better than a Merlin on song is four of them in close formation. OR on occasion, four plus two.

Regards Ian.

The sound of a single Merlin is great when you are sitting just behind it!
