Very good programme. Didn't see any glaring errors and some excellent film clips.

Excellent programme, it certainly brought back a lot of memories for me having worked and flown on the last Flying Boat Squadron in the RAF (205/209) at Seletar.

Any other ex webfooters out there?

Thanks for the pointer, I thought it was a great programme, glad I watched it. It must have been a grand old life flying those things, and for the people rich enough to afford to fly on them.

By the way, anyone read Graham Coster's Corsairville?

I enjoyed it too, though I missed a bit of the start as I haven't quite figured out the new idiot-proof Video recorder works... doh!

Corsairville - seem to recall seeing a documentary about that a few years ago... or might have been part of a programme.
