    PhilB got a reaction from D.B. Andrus in The Russian "Sully" ?   
    This happened yesterday in a very similar situation to the Hudson river landing.
    A321 took bird strikes to both engines shortly after take off and the pilots did a very professional job of putting her down in a maize field.
    All souls on board survived with only minor injuries and only one person kept in hospital overnight.

    Further news just coming in on this one.
    Whilst there were no serious injuries, the ghosts of numerous American baseball players were traumatised enough to need counselling and therapy.
    Apparently they didn't think "If you build it he will come" meant an A321 dropping on top of them.

    Yep, they really earned their money and given the situation it could have been far worse.
    If it had been then of course I wouldn't have added the other "reference"..........

    Nothing, just hot air, plus it's not going to be an LSP, so I'm moving it to General Discussion, where hopefully it'll wither away...

    I grew up with "Radio Yerevan jokes." This whole situation reminds me of this joke: 
     
    Radio Yerevan was asked: "Is it correct that Grigori Grigorievich Grigoriev won a luxury car at the All-Union Championship in Moscow? 
    Radio Yerevan answered: "In principle, yes. But first of all it was not Grigori Grigorievich Grigoriev, but Vassili Vassilievich Vassiliev; second, it was not at the All-Union Championship in Moscow, but at a Collective Farm Sports Festival in Smolensk; third, it was not a car, but a bicycle; and fourth he didn't win it, but rather it was stolen from him."

    As has been mentioned, I think regardless if one likes the kit, or has already built one (my case) I think it does go a long way (hopefully with enough sales) to bringing other more esoteric kits to market in 32nd.

    But I hope they sell tons of them.  That will allow for investment into other subjects.

    I think they should be given an awful lot of slack, they've released some pretty esoteric subjects so far, who else would have produced a Bronco, Trojan, Havard, Mirage 2000, and, fingers crossed, a Jaguar .

    100% agreed. Lots and LOTS of unneeded wiggle room for people to start drawing conclusions of their own regardless of what evidence is presented. All could have been avoided by simply announcing the kit and scale, if it was/is already in a state enough to know 100% its being brought to market.

    Again, I don't think HKM ever stated their new announcement was an LSP.  That was an assumption on the part of many people that was not supported by evidence.   They would have had no reason to do so, since the kit is NOT an LSP.

    But as I've said several times before, there are several new LSP's under active development at HKM.  I just pray that the current goings-on in Hong Kong don't end up in disaster.  I remember 1989 all too well, and that's going to look like a Sunday picnic if the PRC military invades HK.

    Just had an email from Neil. The new announcement that was going to be made at Chattanooga has encountered a slight delay.
     
    HOWEVER - it is NOT a new LSP subject.  That’s not to say there aren’t new LSP subjects coming, there are. Just that the next one up isn’t an LSP.

    In 1/24 you are pretty limited to WW2 props apart from older Airfix Harriers.
    The Trumpeter Hurricane series are very good and build easily.
