morgana, thank you, very interesting read, now you can see why Coventry was top of the hit list.

Hi all Wave I am sure that I have just heard a Dakota fly over head in Holbrooks. Too cloudy to see anything above about twenty feet, but the sound was really good. Douglas DAKOTA C-47 / DC-3 transport aircraft

Hi Philip, hope I can just slip this one in here but move it if you wish. I used to live a stones throw away from the Pearce Air Base here in Perth and they still use the old Hercules for emergency purposes (food supplies and the like). They too have a sound of their own, can always tell when it's passing over. Wave

Glad it's being used for what it was built for aeroplanes. I did hear this on the radio last week. I thought then Philip, good, another bit of our history being saved instead of being demolished and a tourist attraction and somewhere for a day out. Big grin

I get a great view of the airport from where I work. Was sort of trying to see a jet take off the other day. I saw it taxing down the runway and turning round ready to take off. Unfortunately it took off when I had just gone off to the other side of the building.
