A pair of VC-10s, in formation, take off for a 95 minute flight on Sunday 16th August 2009. This Families' Day event took us to Northern England and down the East Coast in glorious weather. The idling hose-retraction turbine can be seen on the port refuelling pod.
Vulcan XH558 can just be seen parked near to the VC-10s. Videograpgher not known.
Tony Jarvis provides us with the following report on this commercial: This is NWT Air's Hercules C-GHPW with Captain Bob Foote, F/O David Cameron, F/E Jim Stewart and behind them a very nervous Norm Geiger as loadmaster. The location is in the Sprey Lakes, Alberta, which is near Canmore West of Calgary. This is a car commercial for Peugot and though it looks it, Bob never did actually hit the car. However.......on one take the director kept shouting

WANTED: VINTAGE AIRLINE DISPLAY MODELS / SPECIALLY VERKUYL METAL MODELS:
In the mid 90s airline display model collector Henry Tenby paid a number of visits to Brian Austria-Tompkins at his Executive Display Models showroom at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel at Heathrow airport.
This 4 minute video gives a detailed view of the goodies in the shop circa 1994. The two RAF Blackburn Beverley models are superb. As are the 1/72 scale models of the Canadian Pacific DC-6, PIA Connie, TAR CL-44, and Monarch Britannia.
And I really love the 1/100th scale Cathay Pacific CV880 hanging on the wall. It is an accurate and lovely period model. I have no idea who made that model but would certainly like to know.
At the end of the clip, the late Brian Austria-Tomkins appears at his desk prepping a 1/72 scale British Midland Boeing 707 for a customer. All great memories, which I am glad I had the foresight to film my visit. Fabulous models to marvel at.
What an amazing business Brian ran, as it serviced demanding collectors from all over the world, with a quality that is pretty much un-matched to this very day. It is a shame Brian is no longer with us, and this video is dedicated to him.
