Nothing to do with trains, but I found this most enjoyable. :thumbsup:

Full screen, high volume, and relax. :)

Great video,
I miss going to Coningsby (to work) then watching the historic flight from the back door of the building I was in, or come to that visiting Scampton and seeing the Red Arrows do their stuff.

Incredible noise.

Reminds me of the occasion I went out of a evening and returned to my residence, shall we say, "well refreshed".

Obviously I decided to put on "The Battle of Britain".....but the next thing I remember is being awoken extremely suddenly by the thunderous roar of many Merlins.

I had obviously fell asleep and when the DVD finished it reverted back to the menu screen, which is a loop of multiple fly-pasts.

I thought I was under attack and made sharp contact with the sideboard.

One hell of a way to start a Saturday.

"Begin your day the Merlin way!" :thumbsup:

There's maybe a marketing opportunity for an App or sound file download for a mobile or tablet. :D

I'd use it. :)
