Radio-controlled Upkeep!

I've just stumbled on this marvellous video by Tom Stanton of a radio-controlled Lancaster dropping a model bouncing bomb. A must watch!




Tom's other videos are wonderful time-wasters, for example, his series of videos on Trebuchets.

I also use Firefox and have the same problem. As a temporary fix I click on 'Go Advanced' at the bottom of the Quick Reply box below the OP's post.

Firefox and W7 64 Pro and no problems.
What was problematical, however, was jealousy ! ...As a child 80+ years ago, this was happening for real and there was nothing even remotely possible or available, even had the finance been available, which would have allowed such an extraordinary implementation of a schoolboy's dream !! How I wish ... but, how very well done to those involved !! My active R/C days were complete before the modern electric motor revolution (see what I did there !) As for those build-it-yourself kits, ... if only !

I have no problems using Firefox on W10. Maybe a firewall problem or possibly an adblocker. Standard Firefox settings? Any extensions?

Aha! I see what you mean: clicking on Go advanced at the bottom of the space for a response, and then scrolling down, you see the same posts as in the previous page, but now the video is visible.
Great, with a little detour I can see the video's. Strange, however, that Firefox won't let me see them in the first place. I have AVG as virus protection, but in the past, video's would always show up. ( W10, 64 b)

Outstanding effort! Well done, in the extreme, to those guys. The actual UPKEEP weapon, as finally used, was calculated by Sir Barnes to skip 3 times over a range of about 450 yards; so the model here proved to be an accurate representation of the Real Thing. So pleased that Operation CHASTISE still inspires younger generations......
