    Unfortunately my parents weren't into taking moving pictures in the early 1930s, three pictures mixed up in a load of other photos. Probably somewhere in southern England.

    I saw one of those weird American VTOL things in the Lakes a few days ago.

    It was slow.

    The Irish Air Corps retired the last of its 172s yesterday - they've been trundling around since 1972.

    Indian Jaguar pilot collects some birds, loses an engine, drops unnecessary fuel and ordnance, then lands the damaged plane.
