Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, Cathay 780!

Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, Cathay 780!

A gradual degradation of engine performance leads a Cathy Pacific crew into a dire situation, all due to Super Absorbent Polymer Spheres!  This is the story of Cathy 780 and the excellent job that the crew did to get their crippled aircraft onto the ground.

Fighting Fog

Fighting Fog

During World War 2, for the bomber pilots, getting shot down over enemy territory was far from the only risk that they faced.  In England, Bomber Command and the Eighth Air Force suffered significant losses when returning to their bases only to find that they were fogged out.  This is the story of FIDO.

A Lancaster comes to grief amongst the FIDO pipes.
