Chocks Away Wingco

The boffins' very latest flying machine

Yesterday we blogged the latest slew of defence equipment cock-ups. Among them was news that, because of MOD's flip-flopping indecision over buying the American Joint Strike Fighter, our brand new £3.9bn aircraft carriers will be equipped with 80 year old Fairy Swordfish biplanes.

Well, OK, not quite Swordfish, but 50 year old flying bedsteads. I've just found the vid of the bedstead's maiden flight: a brilliant example of British Heath Robinson spunk squaring off against girly Yank technology.
