Not a lot happened aircraft wise this past week,

During her inaugural fast pursuit run TBAG1 developed a nasty clunking noise in the rear so we took the brakes apart to find they had completly disintergrated! Oh the hilarity as everything including the inside of the slave cylinder dropped on the floor.
Luckily Mr Walton allowed us to go hunting and we have found a donar van that will allow us to fix ours!

other than that, we put 889's wings down and refitted the wide band pods and jacked 894 up in prep for her nose wheel steering to be looked at.

our new improved website is up and running and well worth a look too!

Oh and some nasty bird has crapped all ove 544's shiny new paint!

I promise to take some pictures this weekend!
