Foxy Lady, Sea Vixen – wheels up landing

Very sad news – the worlds only flying Sea Vixen landed at Hurn (Bournemouth) airfield with an undercarriage problem.

My best wishes go to the aircraft's operators, and I hope to see it airborne again soon… good luck with the repairs..

I hope the CAA don't get cold feet about it continuing to fly, as it is such a unique jet of historic significance, and would be sorely missed from the airshow season.



CB Radio


I've just been given this Harrier CB radio, that a friend found on Freecycle – am I looking at social media from the past? A way of broadcasting your thoughts to a largely anonymous audience…?

Office desk phone headset hack

I made a cable to use my office desk phone headset as headphones for music… Improving productivity for my work, less distraction from others talking to me, as they think I'm on the phone!

Just a piece of Vero Board was perfect to make a connector to plug in to the headset! A quick unplug and plug into the phone when it rings!
