One lovely tradition of our annual visit to @GreatOrmondSt is hanging homemade Christmas decorations, wonderfully sewn by the ‘better halves’ of the Team.

Congratulations to @HarbourAirLtd in the @CityofVancouver, for their first #ePlane test flight today. Had such a great time flying with them during our Summer tour; can’t wait to go back and do it the electric way one day.

An incredible project that deserves more attention; the world’s first all-electric commercial aircraft will fly tomorrow. The crazy bit? It’s a seaplane! A reconditioned de Havilland Canada Beaver.

Quoted@HarbourAirLtd

We're ready, and due to the rapid change in weather have decided to bring the first flight forward by one day. The world’s first all-electric commercial aircraft will now take off on Tuesday, December 10th and will depart from our Richmond (YVR South) location at 8:30am. #ePlane

Thoughts on 360? Can be a bit love-it or hate-it, but certainly one way of getting you closer to our view; metalwork/tiny cockpit and all! This one taken back in Vancouver during our Enhanced Flypast in September.

Sad to hear of the passing of Battle of Britain pilot Flt Lt Maurice Mounsdon, one of the last of ‘The Few’. A great man who we had the pleasure of meeting in Menorca in 2018, during his 100th Birthday celebrations and took time to talk all things flying. Blue skies, Sir.

Doff my cap in absolute respect of the bravery of ‘narwhal guy’, his compadre with the fire hose and of course our guys and girls in blue (and black) yesterday here in London. Twitter is awash with nothing but amazing stories of their selflessness.

If you saw my tweet re: the weather then can I wholeheartedly apologise to the wonderful @metoffice (and forecasters) about whose diagram I posted! Frustrations a plenty with this recent weather and in no way was I inferring it was their fault. My slip up entirely.
