Ahoy,shipmates and fish'eads,this'll really get the old blood pumping.
Footage from the halcyon days of the FAA when the right people were in the right
offices at teh right time.

You'll be yelling for Scimitars,Sea Vixens et al once you've seen this lot..

In the air to ship shots,note the splash as the launching bridle hits
the sea after falling away from the aircraft's cat strops.
These were steel ropes,so you can imagine the cost to the taxpayer
as every launch meant the loss of a new bridle.

A virtual beer for anyone that can tell me the featured ships from the
deck code letters on the aircraft tails.

Well found youth, I just noticed the Skyraider AEW1 taxying at the end, now there's a FAA project for the sim and yes it would be nice for a FS9 version for those of us still steam powered!!!!!!!

Ooh! Luverly! I only saw H and V, so Hermes and Victorious, though the hangar sequence shows some cross decking. Great sequence of the ladies chasing each other through the turn

this is a very good page as well. Loads of '60s action. Love that sublimley understated narration and Griffon Growl.

Ahh. RAZBAM Skyraider. FS9, acceptable in FSX, rather elderly, but still looks great, and the package has all the AD's, including the AEW.1. I don't buy a lot of payware, but that one is inexpensive, and the AEW1 and AD5(12 seater!) make it worth while. One keeps ones fingeres crossed hoping that Piglet will do a AEW to go with the AD's. A state of the art FSX model would be nice.

Golly, really lump in the throat, tear in the eye stuff!. them were the days . . .

Slightly mindane question after that, but can someone (Mark?) remind what the music is in the first video,/ possibly Tangerine Dream the first bit, but don't I'm afraid know the second piece. Stirring stuff as well!

Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike

The music is by Vangelis. First part from 'Mutiny on The Bounty', second part from '1492- Conquest of Paradise'.

cheers, Peter

Thanks Peter, at least I got the right era. I've got some Vangelis inc. the Mutiny but not 1492. All mixed in with my TD. I'm afraid it all shows my age . .

Cheers, Mike
