Channel I visit every so often, discussing those unique What if's and "Could have beens" of aviation: Found & Explained

A recent episode that ought to pique the interest of folks here: The Hawker Siddeley V/STOL Jetliner
The F-106- 26 December 1956 to 8 August 1988
Gone But Not Forgotten

How the devil did anyone expect the HS141 to be quieter than a conventional airliner when it had SIXTEEN lift engines!?  :o

And since when did Hawker-Siddley build the Spitfire?  :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Some of those YouTube "history channels" are pretty bad, the Dark Skies (aka Dork Skies)
channel being amongst the worst.
