    Thanks for your comments Micheal and Col. I've been experiencing the Covid lockdown syndrome I think, so haven't been very active lately. We're starting to open up now and we have been fully vaccinated and things are looking up.

    I also post over on the CalClassic screenshot forum where you can scroll through the post and read the descriptons without having to click to enlarge.

    The only Viscounts I worked on were the British Airways ones at Manchester Airport, you needed your ear defenders on when they started up as well.
