Great Pictures and Videos they all capture Human ideas dont they??
Here is a Hawk BAE being converted by me from the US version of a T45. I am turning it into our Hawk127 which is used as a trainer before ongoing to our fighters. A lot to still be done but getting there. All Navigation lights working and modified landing gear to scale. Paint job to be finished and I had to remodel the nose to how our version with the Radar set up is. She still flies great though on 11.1V and is an EDF.

Okay just for you, and I won't forget, Im nearly finished the 76Sqn paint job now its been a one of with a black top and a black panther emblem to be placed along the side of the aircraft, then the 76 numbering done in yellow with the black tail. Shitzen its been a hard job haha but when done I will get a mate to do some videoing for you of the trial runnup after all done just to see CG is good and do the trial take off. If all Aok well put her through her paces in the air mate no problems. I'll post some Photos of what you will be lookin at of the finished aircraft.

It's got to be the Sea Harrier (FRS1) for me... I consider myself privileged to have served on 3 separate Sea Harrier squadrons between 1982 & 1989 and then a further 8 years as an engineer for BAe, at Dunsfold..."The home of the Harrier"

...another perfect example of British ingenuity & engineering, sold out by the Government!

I have to say the VC10 is stunning.  My next model after the moraine saulnier ac which im really looking forward to build is the xb-70a with retracting wing tips and 6 ducted fan electric motors.

what about the blackbird and concorde too

love the mosquito and the WW2 typhoon

it is pretty quick at 75mph.  i have flown a plane up to about 150mph.  that was certainly a bottom clenching experience lol. 
im not sure how fast the plane im going to build will fly but have been told it is over 100.  i have looked at scratch building the blackbird.  ive seen a plan for it around 10 foot long. 
so is santa going to get it for him? lol

      For me it has to be the Vulcan.I well remember it coming over Weston Super Mare Airfield,on a  low pass,and turning on full power for a steep climb.No wonder I now wear hearing aids, but that could also be through listening to Deep Purple !!!!.
    Lets not forget the Concord,for sheer style.Its about time it was brought back.One severe accident,and it was taken out of the skies,what about all the disasters 747s etc,have had and they are still flying.Once again we led the World. The Yanks had nothing like it,so they just had to ban it frm their Airports.Now we are going to waste millions sending a probe toward the Sun . Why?? We all know its a big ball of flame thats very hot,and that it unlikely to have any living thing on it!!!

I think so.... he has been really commited to learning to fly, which is not bad for a 11 year old in this age of instant gratification.
He has just stepped up to a low wing trainer and if the speed he picked up the high wing is anything to go by I dont think it will be long before he is ready for it

i got my A when i was 11. I progressed very quickly at that age and was flying full aerobatic within about 4 months.  However, i ended up settling on 2-3 aircrafts which i loved to fly. they tend to be more the fun fly planes compared to the scale.  wot4 is a brilliant plane to learn on

Irvine tutors are still probably one of the best planes I've flown, the best without question to learn on and still fun even when you're playing with the big stuff...

Mine had a J'En .47 with a tuned pipe on it... went like stink with the throttle open and would do whatever you told it to... Still regret selling the old girl, but a big XTreme Composites Edge 540 was screaming my name...... ;)
