    Yep. I get told off for watching too many aircraft videos but having served in the RAF on two Squadrons of Phantoms and then employed on Tornados for many years I guess it's in the blood. Enjoy the videos. I've probably worked on a few of those flying through the Mach Loop

    Fabulous aircraft. Definitely my favourite of that era. (And the theme tune was the only good thing about the film.) :)

    The Tarka Trail is an old railway line that has been converted into a cycle and walking path. It's one of the most picturesque in the country, starting at the higher levels by old Clay workings and working it's way down the River Torridge through the old town of Bideford to join the River Taw and then enter the sea. If you've read Tarka the Otter you'll note many of the old bridges and places from the story. I've pedalled it many times but I distinctly remember coming across this monument just outside Bideford for the first time on a bright hot sunny day.
    A sobering reminder of times gone by. These lads were a long way from home when this tragedy struck, so close to the end of the War in Europe.

    If anyone has a special interest in aviation then please pop along to the Booksale in Bednall Church on Saturday. From 10.00 to 12.00.
    We’ve had a whole section of aviation themed books and magazines donated that may be of interest to some of you. (Thanks @Noah )

    This is a massive propoganda video for the MiG-31 but still very interesting to watch
