  3. However I will tell you about the greatest event I ever witnessed. In 1958/9 at the height of the cold war I saw on several occasions both squadrons of Vulcan`s scramble one after the other (617 first.) To see one vulcan take off is awe inspiring but to see the whole 2 squadrons take off IN PAIRS was the most inspiring event I had witnessed of these aircraft. The noise was thunderous.

  4. Sincere apologies for the flippant remarks above.Freedom of speech etc is so rapidly vanishing.
  5. Ian and Fly, ...........take it this is what you mean? (# 15)
  6. Hello Joy and congrats on a wonderful day yesterday. Now can I ask you(as we were neighbours (up until 11 anyway) if you new Johnny Hardy, Pete Coffee, Kenny Hemsley, the Grewcock brothers, and Harry Cook at the Hop Bloom? Whose class were you in at BBH. ? Kenny is trying to find Ann Cropper,remember her? Best wishes Stan H.

In 1955 he also resumed wearing Air Force blue, only this time in Au

I do not like the decision to exclude my very middle ground political opinions on here,but that is the rule. I suppose you are aware of the difference between democracy and benevolent dictatorship?
  9. Mick`s Forum.....Mick`s rules Ok?
  10. Mr. or is it MS? Brenton,The lady?gentleman doth protest too much, has been used as a figure of speech, in various phrasings, to indicate that a person's overly frequent or vehement attempts to convince others of something have ironically helped to convince others that the opposite is true, by making the person look insincere and defensive. He/she certainly PRESUMES too much. You don`t seem to be aware that this forum is entirely owned and paid for by Mick2Me. It is entirely up to him to decide to do with it as he please. If people want to quote and are prepared to donate to make that poss
  11. #33 I for one think an extra $250 a year on top of Mick`s already very generous payments is something that he should not have to add. All very well talking about the extra cost until one tries to collect. I think it should be VERY WELL DONE MICK.
  12. Margie H (#28) Don`t send money ,wait until I give you ....wait for it.......... A QUOTE
