    BBC Footage of my cockpit

    Hi folks
    below is the link to the BBC footage when they filmed my cockpit this week. It's a bit on the tacky side as the concentrated more on the blonde presenter and making me feel stupid than they did in the pit. They also misquoted the price to build one which should have been 1,000 plus, NOT 10,000 that she quoted, typical TV but you can get a look at where I am at.

    Just ordered my forward overhead to add in.

    Regards
    Richard

    A nice moment to be proud of for years to come, even if the beeb misquoted what you have spent, and thats the kind of news footage welcomed, rather than the usual doom and gloom

    Re: BBC Footage of my cockpit

    Thanks one and all for the kind postings. Still gotta long way to go, but with the help of the likes of you guys and of course the flying legend (or is that leg-end) himself - Ian, how can I go wrong!

    Now waiting on my new Overhead from SImWorld in Poland. Hope it's as horny and good as it looks. Got the tissues out ready, lol.

    Regards
    Richard
