A sad end to a majestic and iconic British aircraft…
Join me on a transatlantic KLM flight heading towards Europe. Listen to what the pilot has to say.
Join me on a KLM flight and listen to the safety briefing many of us, I suspect, don’t listen to.
Join me as I try to record bird sounds in the wood only to have a light aircraft fly overhead…
Join me as we all take off in a modern helicopter (best with headphones on).
Join me in the departure lounge of an airport (we’ve all been there!)

In today’s plastic and electronic world, we often seem to lose sight of how important engineering skills are to us. And, we especially lose sight of how important solid engineering training is. We certainly don’t always seem to make things like we used to. Perhaps it is because our politicians mostly read PPE at Oxford or are former lawyers. They wouldn’t know a spanner if it hit them on the head! That leads me to ask the question…what exactly are our politicians good for? Answer (as in the song): ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
One of the very brave and highly inspirational women who, during World War 2, flew newly built aircraft from the factories to airfields around the UK. They flew without radios or any armaments. They flew many types of different aircraft with minimal training. Exceptional pilots.
