Also- there's a glaring error- the Merlin I wax on about is actually a Griffon- but the glorious symphony is the same.For those who responded, my thanks- this is a wonderful pastime- affordable for the common man- not having to deal with those pesky Rolls-Royce top overhauls and what not ;)Carl F.

I'm sitting here in my virtual cockpit, the weight of too many years pressing down, with tears in my eyes. Your words painted such a wonderful and dramatic scene that it actually made me sad - sad that I couldn't be sitting in that snarling, creaking beast with my hand gently resting on the throttle and the smells of history running through my consciousness.Thank you - I don't seem to be able to say much more than that.fb
