241 Brunty 24th May

Post by Murray Keene » Tue May 26, 2015 3:47 pm

A very grey and grotty day Sunday but the Graceful Lady looked superb! Was a pleasure to meet a few of the A Team and Gary who did a wonderful job with her. The weather brightened up later but after the Lightning had run everyone seemed to wander home :( BUT I bet they heard her running =D>

You too Bill its always an honour to meet original 10 engineers! Hope to see you if we get a chance to run 150?

Oh and she did it on only 3 engines! No.4 didnt spool up for some reason that is being looked into :( It was superb to be sat in one again and feel the power of those Rolls Royce works of art they call 'engines' - nope MASTERPIECE is more appropriate. Would have been nice for Tonks to call V1 - ROTATE , still we can dream :lol:

I have a cockpit video but cant edit it so eventually it will appear.

PS (at Brunty Richard commented I looked different from my profile pic in which I had HAIR! True all those years on long lead, sat under the engines on the tubes on max power runs blew it all off) :lol:

Cheers Murray. Did you manage to get that complex camera mounting fixed in place? I look forward to seeing the footage!

Just for the record, I'm not one of the engineers. I took a wrong turn when I was 17 by not joining the RAF and as a result I now have a dull job flying a desk :wink: It's great to assist where I can, though, and it's nice to learn a thing or two about the lovely old girl.
