Thrust to weight ratio of well in excess of 1, I'd say, looking at that flight.

What a magnificent model :)

Nice find Peter.

I've always wanted to fly model aircraft but would be too afraid of crashing the thing which, after building it, would break my heart.

Jan14 2014, Thunder City Lightning backin the air......

Read about it in the the latest edition of Flypast in my local Sainsburys library.

Wonderful news, the aircraft was given a full overhaul with close co-operation with the SA CAA.
Our CAA should talk to their counterparts in the USA, Canada and SA and learn about keeping old jets airworthy.

Cheers

Apparently, it's all going to be reported upon in the next edition of the RAeS monthly publication. That'll make an interesting read :)

Used to live in the last London borough before Surrey and constantly annoyed by aircraft on the approach to Heathrow - apart from around 18:00 when I had to rush out and watch a particular aircraft go over.

All these millions pounds of public money to save a bit of canvas with paint on - much more interesting to spend it on preserving things that can do things.

Movies4Men(?) had what appeared to be an excellent programme yesterday on the Harrier. Only managed to catch about 15 minutes of it, have looked for the week ahead but it's not repeated, but as they tend to put such things on a reel I'm sure it will be on again. Seemed very good.

I could say perhaps not as nothing fell off but, I presume ground crew, like air crew were extremely proud of being associated with the aircraft.

Such a shame that BA rejected Bransons offer for the aircraft so they could be kept flying. Nice of BA to make that decision inspite of every taxpayer paying for the aircraft - wonder what the outcome if they had asked those who had paid for them?
