Re: early 80`s jet hydroplane, Coniston.

I have spoken to a friend who was involved with Noel Edmonds. He cannot remember any Blue ribbon /transatlantic boat scam. He was allegedly scammed by Basil Wainwright over the Excaliber project.

a Bit dangerous, Carbon Tet has the same properties as chloroform in the 'putting you to sleep' department. Its good for getting stains out of clothing though.

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Interesting information given on the site. The engine info leaves a few questions though! Turmanski R13's [9,000lbs thrust] are available at a reasonable cost with a Russian Technician available to help fit them out for a fee. It is possible to fit two vipers together if you have the right informati...

He and Chapman were pulled from Pisces after 84 1/2hrs and had a calculated 12 minutes of air left! Luckily Roger had put an extra oxygen tank onboard the day before other...

Re: Pic of the Day

Malcolm,
I never noticed that before! I have checked my files and there is nothing mentioned re the flag and Infinity. I attach a photo of the the crusader showing what you are talking about.
What is also curious, is that when you 'zoom in' on the flag it appears to have been painted upside down.
