    Default The Avro Anson

    I have a soft spot for the Avro Anson (probably because it was the first Airfix kit I managed to complete)

    My other all time favourite is that other brilliant example of British engineering, the Harrier. Not least because my late brother-in-law was Senoir Engineering Officer for two squadrons of them.

    They based a few of those at RAF Northolt in the fifties and sixties. I saw loads of them. And regularly saw Armstrong Whitworth Argosy, Fairchild C-82 Packet, Douglas C47 Dakota, Avro Shackleton, Lockheed P-2 Neptune, Fairy Gannet, Super Constellation, C-130 Hercules, Bristol Brittania, Vampires, Meteors, Canberras, Comets, Javelins, Hunters, Vickers Varsity & Valetta, Percival Pembrokes, De Havilland Devon, Blackburn Beverley, Handley Page Hastings, (flew in the last four from there). There were loads more that I've not recalled.

    They filmed The Battle of Britain movie there, so I saw loads of ex Spanish air force Heinkel HE111 bombers and ME109 fighters, all sporting Merlin engines. Plus all the WW2 British fighters doing dogfight simulations.

    The Harrier was tested there too.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I was brought up around planes as my father worked for Hawker Siddeley/de Havilland at Hatfield which means we went free to all the yearly air displays at Hatfield

    I guess it was inevitable that I would go on to be a pilot. Firstly gliders and later on hang gliders. I owned my own glider, an Astir like this



    And then an Elan hang glider like this



    I love everything and anything to do with planes

    It's a real shame that the Vulcan is now grounded as I always loved the 'howl' of all those Olympus engines but I did support the Vulcan financially as much as I could

    There is nothing to beat a glider Grant..

    I tried powered but hated it because of the noise and in my opinion 'little skill'
