In the August AAIB report there are two incidents of early flap retraction after take off (instead of the undercarriage - Oops!) by different Airbus 320s (one at Birmingham and one at Schiphol) but on the same day! One was more serious as the flaps and slats fully retracted which caused the plane...

The June 2016 AAIB report includes an engine fire in a Bombardier Dash 8-402 on route from Glasgow to Belfast. Nearing the cruising altitude the left engine oil pressure indicated zero. On shutting down the engine they called a PAN and elected to continue to Belfast but shortly after flames were...

I notice in the December AAIB reports that Tiger Moth G-ACDC (the oldest flying) got a bit bent in a ground collision. Taxiing down wind, on concrete between parked aircraft (it has a tail skid and no brakes!) When we flew Tigers taxiing 'off field' was taboo without someone holding each wing tip...

I hadn't seen one of these before. I suspect not the easiest model to construct. The full size had a colourful history that is worth reading up on. This model flies really well...and looks good with its smoke system on the fast passes. [video]

Always had a fancy for one of these but wasn't sure if I could manage two motors in my early days and never got round to it later . Probably never will now I like the name Pfiel =Arrow too.

Interesting but the frightening bit is not so much the crash (rather expected ;) ) but the guy with the extinguisher first tries to put out a smoking LiPo with a Co2 and then picks it up! [video] He obviously has not seen an actual runaway LiPo fire. :woohoo:

When I was a lad I remember seeing 'a lot' of B36 bombers flying over my parent's house in Surrey, later on in life I associated this with the RAF Royal Review in 1953, but having looked it up, 6 B36 visited England in 1951. The C82 tracked u/c can be seen in this picture. [attachment] ...

I was not entirely happy with the way the O-2 flew at the Fly-in. it was pretty windy and turbulent but it seemed to struggle a bit. This evening (18.30) is was almost calm so I could find out if there was actually anything wrong. An edited video (the flight was 10 minutes long) gives some idea of...

Eric You are most likely right. Although my slightly smaller Depron pusher lightweight has a similar power to weight ratio and even lower wing loading it was specifically designed as a 'low drag' airframe with a thin wing section and it handled the blustery conditions yesterday reasonably well....
