The Bar / 360 degree Attack Helicopter Ride Through Mosul

Pretty cool imagine this on a WWII battlefield (just to name one) bombing of Dresden, or ride on a Tiger at Kursk.

The Bar / Re: In memory of Sir Roger Moore
« Last post by uk 75 on Today at 03:58:13 am »
I grew up in the 60s watching the Saint on a Sunday night before going to be for school
the next day. There were a plethora of these series like Danger Man (Patrick McGoohan) and
later on The Baron (Steve Forrest) and Man in a Suitcase (Canadian, I think).

One episode of the The Saint was always my favourite as it featured the P1127 (available in
a plastic bag as an Airfix kit for 2s 6d (12 and a half p!) at Woolworths and made badly by
me a couple of times before a friend and I set fire to it with his RAF bomber fleet!)



Called "Flight Plan" it features William Gaunt (later to be in The Champions) as a greedy
RAF Pilot who repents at the last minute.  Plot is thin of course but the film of P1127s in
action was very welcome- the episode aired in 1966. TSR2 had gone and I had not yet
read in the 1968 RAF Yearbook about the P1154!

Roger Moore was a fine man!

Not quite sure what point to make other than needless cynicism.

"Needless" cynicism? Ain't no such thing.

Don't know if this has already been posted?  :o



Regardless of your views, I found it interesting, to say nothing of some fantastic cockpit views/footage

165 is a good start............  ;D

165 of what? A four engined twin weapon bay aircraft similar to a B2? Or a twin engined single weapon bay 1/2 the payload of a B2 type of bomber?  Either way 100 is far too few.
