I don't know about anyone else, but I am.  It nearly made me cry.  I hate to see aircraft broken up and neglected.

What's not to like? I thought they went out of business when the original prototype crashed. Happy to see they're making a go of it. Now where to get $297,000? Honey, do we really need this house?

The $297,000.00 does not appear to include the $75,000.00+ Falconer V-12 engine (only the prop, drive system, etc.).

I was this close to joining up and heading down to the Falklands when Argentina decided on their bit of mischief.  I think that I stayed glued to the tv the entire time.  What I don't understand is why GB did not use the Victors.  They were faster, had longer ranges, and carried more conventional bombs.

Thanks for providing the video, Charlie.  It gave me goose bumps.  I'm still watching it but I have to get some stuff done this morning...like work.

The SR-71 was one of my all time favorites. If you have never seen the video of the guy with the radio controlled SR-71, google "Radio Controlled SR-71" and enjoy. Even the RC model will amaze you.
