Hi Paul and Rob The second video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XugRvw7j_4. Somehow Rob's post gained some extra letters etc. The video is very clear and both show the craft in its intended format. Unfortunately the need for such craft had disappeared before they could be used as fast jet travel across the Atlantic had made the flying boats redundant. Good to see video of the real boats.
Stephen, as this is a U-tube video can we include a link in the Plans & Docs section?
great video, I could watch it over and over, for the eagle eyed amongst us, notice no RAF roundel on the pennant, as it was still in trials, hence crew not in an RAF uniform, they where probably Vosper employees. Also the pennant flying under the ensign was blue/white signifying vessel may deviate from true course being under test.
All of the pictures etc bouncing around are pre RAF handover, if you look real close the clues are there!😎
I'm watching these over, I have a plan for an engine sound unit coming along, just got to finish an rc plane project that Stephen has helped with, that's for another discussion!
