I have a feeling that this is going to be a bit like the joke about Luigi the boatbuilder [I sh*gga da one sheep...!] :P :P :P

Spectacular Colonel! I love the way that, after just missing the first model, you made absolutely sure of the Pulstar, a classic "bounce" in the best traditions of Bader, Johnson et al.

Well I don't think I'll be risking chasing any more models to get video!! But the video shows the Buckminster field well - two flat grass runways large enough to land a light aircraft on, and all the cars parkes off on the far side of the runways were in the free flight area.

Thanks for doing that Phil - since I lost Windows Movie Maker, I really need to get myself a usable (ie not over complex like Sony Vegas) video editing program...

Fantastic! :D Thanks guys...... With the pilot in the foreground, it really has the feel of WW1 combat! Colin I think you need to change your username to "Red Baron". ;) :P ........ My model was also somewhere up there at the time so I consider myself lucky! Thanks to Phil too for editing and posting it, including the "action replay"! Have you managed to repair it?

Maybe the models were attracted to each other through some unexplainable 'Vic Smeed' connection...
