Primarily for general aviation discussion, but other aviation topics are also welcome.

Mid September I believe.

It's tricky because whilst it's on "General Release" there were only two showings remotely local, both in Cambridge and both in the middle of the day. I'm sure a lot of people who would have been stunned by the film on the big screen wouldn't attend something with the subtitle "Documentary"

Thanks for that tKF.

Interesting to note that it is half the price to view of this bio-pic of a forumite. ... 018-online

Anyone else think his image has been heavily airbrushed? He didn't look that good the morning after in Elba.

All at Staverton, of course .. :thumright:

[The heirs, 'Dowty Propellers', now part of GE Aviation, suffered a catastrophic fire at the original Rotol factory at Staverton not that long ago. Production, mainly of carbonfibre propellers for the C130Js, was uninterrupted but moved to a temporary site in the Forest of Dean. It is now due to move back to a permanent home on the Gloucester Business Park, ie on the former GAC airfield at Brockworth]

As a footnote to that footnote ... :oops:

The new factory was formally opened today. JAM hosted a related private reception shindig, as we often do for local aviation companies. As part of this we were presented with a small piece of the old Brockworth runway, which has largely or wholly now been dug up. However, at JAM we can provide a leaflet guide to a walking route which points out legacy of the airfield infrastructure still visible. Definitely better tackled in summer, though; it will be rather muddy in parts at the moment! ... rs-3609555

Agreed. Sure the neighbours love me...

One minor/massive point though !

The end shot of the spit disappearing off into the horizon really ought to have been a victory roll.......?

I think it deserves a bump on the forum as a recommendation of something to watch over the festive period, I'll certainly be watching it again.
