My brother-in-law, Richard Johnson, has been flying model planes for years. He has a huge workshop in his back garden where he disappears for hours at a time.
His most ambitious undertaking to date was this massive model!
The Plane, a D H Venom, is massive, at 1/6th scale. After nearly three years of research, planning, building and testing, the maiden flight of the venom took place at Dalton Barracks, Abingdon Airfield, on Friday 11th of April, 2014.
The flight was successful, but a few modifications will be made before its next flight.

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
