Video of the kind of plane I've bought 3/4 finished. This sort of thing encourages me to get on with it....

I love Samcrac's videos!

I am puzzled as to how he finances what he does, as I assume YouTube isn't paying him enough to buy all the cars he buys, and he swears he isn't just patching up cars to sell.

That said, our next door neighbour was building a plane in his garage, but he moved away before he finished it. He once told me that he "wasn't very handy with tools", so it seems to me that building a plane perhaps wasn't the best hobby choice for him, but then what do I know?

I would tend to agree, although there is a rigorous and very detailed inspection by the FAA before a kitplane is allowed to fly.

I fixed my link BTW :-)

They're pretty but they're a little 1980s at this point.... most of us don't have cars as old as these fighters

On the subject of liveries, Brussels Airlines have repainted a subset of their A320s in typical Belgian themes:

One as a tribute to the national football team.





I suppose they had to do this





I've flown on this one



Still looking for 'mayo and frites', haven't found it yet.

Were they the Oregon Air National Guard ones. Had 2 flying and one had suspected undercarriage problems the other day. Had to dump $4 million of missiles in the Pacific before attempting to land. Of course the undercarriage worked fine on landing. The OANG fighter wing covers the whole of the west coast.

Seeing the 380 do its display was still amazing as it seemed to defy physics.
The other shock from that is the limitations that have been put in place since shorham. If the Red Arrows really are limited to just flyoasts over land, how much longer will they keep going?
