Excellent, thanks for that find. What a pity none of these (and the VC-10) were preserved.

Thanks for that TeeBee. I worked for Hunting for many and the sight of the Merchantman in their colours brought back memories.

There's a VC-10 at Duxford along with the BEA Trident 2E G-AVFB which was shot up by the Turkish Air Force at Nicosia Airport in 1974 and which was later repaired by BA engineers and flown back to England. Lots more there too.

Cold War Jets collection at Bruntingthorpe also have a VC-10 in their collection-the intention was to keep it in taxiable condition.(will check)
Their website needs updating,but I believe they actually have two VC-10`s.

ZD241 is in taxiable condition,ZA147 future unclear,but is still at Bruntingthorpe I believe.

Found this video on you tube-note the car alarm`s wailing as the aircraft spools up the engines (only two running I think)-tee hee!

Lots of footage of Yak-38s, including some from their brief deployment to Afghanistan in 1980

Unusual angle of a Bell 212 with a camera mounted on a blade-tip!

Hand-turning of the rotor but understandably not under power...

NAMC YS-11 start-up, worth it just for the amazingly complex self-stowing airstair...

Capital 146 G-OSUN from the cockpit, Luton to Dublin in March 1990.  Shame it's not on the Belfast City run but still great to see that livery again!

Dublin airport looked so empty back then  :o

The 146 really does have excellent visibility compared to that from the Ryanair 111 video in the same channel.
