We could always try Cheerleaders and pyrotechnics well if it's good enough for the Showjumping set............. :roll: A thought occurred to me that when I attended SPLASH last year, there were a few displays in the main concourse. If we had one of the Build a planes there it might pull a few more p...

They did a lot of tracking runs using the Range head ATC radar which at altitude could follow it all the way down the Irish Sea from Scotland to Lands End and back again and again............... M...

As soon as I walk into a shop they start talking Polish, Armenian, Punjabi, Hindi, Tractor...... Usually it's the other...
