It's Goodbye from Us and Goodbye from Him


Unfortunately due to other commitments, and the spiralling cost of insuring Hoskins this will be the final blog.

Thanks for reading over the past year, and if you have had half the fun reading this that we had writing it, we will have had twice as much fun as you.

Uncle Roger, Reggie and Hoskins.

Supermarine Scimitar


today we blow some more dust off the archives and take a look at the Supermarine Scimitar, an often overlooked Naval aircraft built consequently in small numbers, but if you read the Air Pictorial series of the 1950's can be traced through a direct line of development from the Spitfire through laminar flow wings on the Spiteful, to the Attacker and Swift.

Invicta Air Cargo

today we are blowing some more dust off the archives, and go back to the 1960's and take a look at the DC4's / C54's operated by one of the earlier incarnations of the Invicta brand Invicta Air Cargo.
