"For a company to roll back the clock and give attention to lesser known jet aircraft that for the most part have been relegated to museums and reference books is a dicey proposition to many. Durafly has taken a bold step and begun to do just that..."

A quote from a Flight Report article that we published on the 70mm Durafly Vampire

Scott, no knocking you guys on my part, the waiting adds to its allure. I am very happy to have the anticipation. I for one enjoy the hints.-----Metalguy

I had a feeling this would happen. I would ask that you don't do this because of a few people wanting to spoil the party. the majority rules in a democratic society and we've more than voted that we want you to "spill the beans" Scott. keep posting the new stuff when it's up and coming. not to quote Mr. Spock or anything, but, "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one." LOL.

Come on guys we are all entitled to our opinion, but all this sucking up makes me feel sick.
We all know that it will arrive when its ready but people are entitled to show their frustration in having to wait after being told its almost here.

All i got was video has been removed by user,still i'm sure it was a great video and there are others to be seen on YT.

Did anyone in the UK watch the repeats of the classic British Aircraft on Discover History on cable last night,one was on the Gloster Meteor and the De Vampire,then straight after was another program on the Sea Hawk and the De Sea Vixen,they had quite a few repeats on but these are the ones i watched.

Ok i know they have been on a good few times before but i never get tired of watching them.

Oh don't worry, if all goes to plan you'll certainly see it before that, all I can say for now.

Why doesn't HK get with it and put it up on the site so we can order and pay for it now and just send it out when it comes in................ie PRE Order.

Many other companys do this + they get to know if they will need to reorder straight away from the supplier and save another hold up.
