    I just love the golden era of aviation and glad to see just a small part of it, todays aviation scene just isn't quite as nostalgic as the good old days!!
    Sadly that era has gone and the new generation stuff is here to stay, lucky we have our little reminders in various scales and the photos to keep those memories alive!!
