    Goblin jet engine has a very distinctive sound. The Swiss flew Vampires and Venoms long after we stopped flying them. Nice little aircraft, although I do prefer the Meteor, there’s a couple at Cotswold Airport, Kemble, being restored to flying condition, one has flown recently, I believe.

    Is that a genuine Norwegian Vampire, or a redressed UK example?

    Love a vampire.

    Probably something to do with reading the shepherd when I was wee.

    I saw one in the flesh a few weeks back at the RAF museum, it was surprised by how small it was but it looked amazing.
