I don't think I would actually buy a DVD of an airshow but I do enjoy the trailers issued by Planes TV.

Click the t/n for the video.

Another approach to full size aviation videos is that from Aerocinema in America, click for the trailers of their films on:-

Lightning - - - - - Javelin

I have had a sort out of the "Plan Suppliers and Magazine Downloads" section in Links on the left. Removed some that were no longer active but feel sure there are others that could be added, so suggestions welcome.

What I hadn't noticed before were the magazine covers shown at RCLibrary, interesting to see the styles change over the years.

The season of Winter meetings at Peakirk comes to an end this evening with a talk by Andy Sephton. It is entitled "A winning formula for scale models."
Outdoors there are the Tuesday and Friday flying sessions at Ferry Meadows, where there is also a Good Friday meeting.

An enjoyable finish to the PMFC 2017/2018 Indoor Flying Season yesterday. Although don't forget the meeting on 18th at Impington Village College

Previously Soo Modellers and friends have concentrated on electric powered r/c models for their indoor flying, but this season there has been a growing interest in rubber power free flight.
