What a first full week at Flying Tigers that was! I did say in last weekends Newsletter that I had hoped that all the establishment problems that I had experienced would now be a thing of the past, but how wrong could I be? Over the past few days, I have been forced to endure […]
I am very pleased to be able to announce that the new Flying Tigers website is now live and open for business. The transfer was much more problematic than I could possibly have imagined, which resulted in our proposed launch date being delayed much longer than I would have liked, but I suppose that I […]

When you ask such a leading question as ‘Which was the best fighter aircraft of WWII?’, you really do open an aviation can of worms.

Unfortunately, they turned out to be […]

The North West of England can boast a rich heritage in aviation design, testing and manufacture, which spans the entire history of manned flight. Unfortunately, much of this is now very much consigned to the history books and many of the factories and airfields from the past have long since disappeared. As a proud Lancastrian, […]
There are some aircraft types that seem to possess something that little bit special, when it comes to popularity amongst aviation enthusiasts and die-cast aviation collectors alike. Spitfires, Mosquitos and Lancasters would certainly qualify in the propellor powered era, but when talking about jet aircraft, there is one aircraft that almost universally seems to rise […]
There is nothing like a cold and windy winters evening to make you yearn for the delights of the summer Airshow season and I have to say that last year was something of a classic year. One of the most pleasant aviation surprises I experienced last year was catching up with the only airworthy Westland […]
We have a rather intriguing title for our latest Newsletter. Over the years, I have been asked this question on literally hundreds of occasions and I thought it was about time that we looked at it in a little more detail – ‘Should it be Me, or Bf when talking about Messerschmitt fighters of WWII?’ […]
The undoubted highlight of the 2014 UK Airshow season was the visit of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Avro Lancaster Mk.X to these shores, which really was as magnificent a spectacle, as it was unexpected. Fortunately, the UK is blessed to be at the forefront of the historic aviation movement, and home based enthusiasts have […]
There can be few aircraft in the modern era of aviation, that are as enigmatic and interesting as the US Aggressor Squadron aircraft – a real case of a ‘Sheep in Wolf’s clothing’.
