Ep.06: Aircraft restoration – the Trident & P-51 Mustang ‘Lou IV’

Restoration of the HS121 Trident and P-51 ‘LOU IV’ feature in this episode…….

We have interviews with Matt Falcuss and Terry Dieno, who are both working hard to keep their aircraft projects moving forwards. We are also joined by a guest host Elliott Marsh whose expertise in restorations and warbirds fosters a great discussion later on in the show.

We have news of another flying sortie by one of our presenters and take a look at the recent news regarding the possible merger of BAE and EADS.

PS Before anyone writes in – Gareth does say that he’d been for a ride in Blackburn Buccaneer XW944, he did of course mean XW544! Proof, it were needed, that he’s not a spotter!
