Spent many days at the end of the runway at RAF Wyton during the early 90's. Here's a great documentary:

Looking very nice. Zeke stopped by our club field today (he and his wife were in the local area) and he helped with the maiden of the Cessna Bobcat of his that I built. We spent some time yakking about the B-57 so it looks very interesting!!

Hey Brian,
Nice to hear Zeke was out and about..Sounds like things are looking up..How did the Bobcat do? The B-57 is coming along nice. Working on installing the gear. Planning on using Eflite as they are readily available.

Was good to see Zeke yesterday. Bobcat flew very nicely. I was only able to get a couple of inflight pics but Zeke took a bunch more that he said he was going to post.

B-57 is looking very nice. Keep up the good work.

Xplaneguy, you may have mentioned Wyton before in these threads --- I too used to bike to Wyton and spent many hours sitting under the approach, we lived in Huntingdon. Was always being watched by the security police on the other side of the fence ? Many versions of the Canberra also Valiants and a few Victors during my era.

Really hoping that this model version comes to fruition as a kit of some sort.

Scott, really like seeing the balsa getting glued. Look forward to the sheeting process.

Hi
Jeff ..I have been getting into a lot of balsa lately...I love the stuff...
Roger. It is a lot of parts and amazing how fast it builds.
The hardest part is making sure you put glue on every joint..Not like the old days where you put glue on one part and hold them till dry then move to the next part..

Coming along nicely Scott.
