    Off topic: Calling all vintage pilots watch owners

    So you've got your self a vintage pilots watch, what else do you need? A vintage pilots jacket?, a Cockpit clock as a desk clock? perhaps, but how about this as the ultimate accessory to your watch,

    Nice, but you know there's a certain ex-BBC presenter that'll see your Hispano Buchon and raise you a Lightning

    Agreed Apollo', Merlins are magnificent engines, fantastic noise. I was told a story that there is a Merlin engine sitting on the bottom of a lake near here. IIRC it was in a race boat that flipped, crashed and sank a few decades ago and was never found & recovered.

    Hmmm... Should I take a loan and buy a MiG-17? And a Poljot-Strela chrono? Ummm... No. But maybe a Strela alone will do.
