  1. Aircrew Interview delivers as always, this is one of my favourite episodes.
  2. A Czech excursion to RAF Fairford for RIAT 1991. Love the air-to-air shots of MiGs in formation with RAF Phantoms.
  3. Was hoping they'd put the MiG-19 on sale, apparently it's too early though. Might pick it up regardless.
  4. And a couple of nephews to help me out. 😉
  5. Oh yeah, I used to love them as a kid. Putting this little plane together brought back so many memories... I think I know what I'm gonna get both my nephews for Christmas. 🤣 Perhaps I should get myself a set too? 🤔 It's gonna be a while, need to build a tunnel first... 😁
  6. So I paid a visit to my big sister's family today. Of course her boys (2,5 and 4) were all to happy to invite me to build some Legos. Guess what uncle Firefly built... 🤣 If I ever have kids of my own, I am going to consider a steady supply of new Lego kits my absolute priority. 😁
  7. Years ago i downloaded this recording in .wav form, never thought I'd hear it again. Thank you!
  8. Hungarian MiG-21bis operations from a grassy airstrip, 1992. I don't think I've ever seen another such video!
  9. The graphics are breathtaking!
  10. More stuff! Greek F-4E Phantom operations. Finnish MiG-21bis cockpit tour. The differences between this export model and the aircraft we have in DCS are quite apparent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us01NdMGVtY [embedding doesn't work on this one, sorry] An excellent walkaround of a Polish MiG-23MF, freshly restored by Grupa Archeo Łask to static display condition. And now for something entirely different - USAF testing of No Kum Sok's MiG-15. Polish Su-22s departing Kleine Brogel AB. Glorious video and sound quality. Russian AF Su-24 and MiG-31 operations. Again, lovely quality. Polish Mi-24s at a local airshow at Nowy Targ. The Hind is a genuinely scary machine, even in this hideous overall green camo. Czech MiG-23ML at the 1997 edition of the Royal International Air Tattoo. This aircraft was seldom seen in the West, even after the fall of the Berlin Wall, making this footage doubly interesting. [again, no embedding, sorry.] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z57oMS-tydk Czech MiG-23 and MiG-23 instructional video. Features ground checks, refuelling, servicing and in-flight videos. Wonderful! 4k footage of Bulgarian MiG-21s during an air-to-air photo shoot. I love the paint scheme on these. Russian Su-25s in action, includes a live fire segment on a shooting range. Last but not least, I found another glorious MFG-28 video, depicting a Staffel of Su-22s over the Baltic Sea. Well worth a watch.
  11. Glad you like them! I agree, those Czechoslovakian videos are something else. Wish there we had a similar official channel in Poland, but with current political climate that'd be impossible... As for road base operations, I'd love to try that! Is there a strech of motorway anywhere on Caucasus that we could use for such an exercise?
  12. Not at all, thank you for moving it there. I wasn't sure where to put it... Glad you find them interesting. Wish I could share my book collection too, alas, copyright laws... 😕
