Thanks Robert!


From the article;


At first glance, it looks like any normal fighter jet patrolling the skies.
But actually, this impressive jet - which has a massive 20-ft wingspan - is Britain's largest four-jet engine model aeroplane.
Dave Johnson's radio-controlled Vulcan bomber is capable of speeds approaching 150mph and worth £25,000.


Wish the Daily Fail could make it's mind up! :-o

What I'm wondering is: With a 20-foot
wingspan and 150 mph capability, what
sort of rules and regs and paperwork
does he have to endure in order to fly
the thing?????

Does he need a NOTAM :)) ?????

Danf.
I like to do my planning retroactively!
