Given my 390045 '101 Squadron' a good running in now and had a play with tested the sounds on DCC.

While she was gliding around the test track, I managed to pull a few strings and organize a special flypast:

My test track will only cope with 5 cars, but here's a photo of City of Manchester waiting for my layout to get a continuous run.

Hello all,

Loving the two previous shots. 

The VC-10 is in my view one of the most beautiful aircraft ever to grace the skies!

Cheers

Bloomin loud as well, had one do a Go-around once and the very ground shook.

Also good pub quiz fodder, when Concorde retired they were the fastest passenger carriers in the sky.

Hi Gang,

Nice shot of the Pendo with the VC10. I have had the privilege of many journeys in said aircraft...always a joy and the quirky rearwards facing seats on a passenger jet (whilst in RAF service) just added to the fun. Favourite seat was last row on the starboard side..with a fold out table and best legroom.

Later,
Stu from EGDL.

Fitting then, to have it posed with one of the most beautiful models of one of the most beautiful trains to ever grace the (UK) rails. :thumbsup:

Too much? :sick: :D
