Chris, For my three quid I got free coffee, sticky buns and biccies as well as a fascinating illustrated talk so I consider it good value. The venue is excellent and the CAC staff most helpful. They have an interesting programme of monthly talks through the winter.

She also emphasised that she was accompanied on her flights with another aircraft carrying the support crew and equipment.
Did she mention the presence of a very experienced Pilot in the Stearman with her?

Was there any explanation for the Herne Bay Vdeo comments about her solo flying?

Can we expect her Facebook page to show her actual, instead of falsified, honorary rank any time soon?

If Barry's impressed then that's impressive !
Also , if TC-T has seen the light and is now doing positive work for younger and more impressionable people and doing it with a straight bat , then that's also impressive .

It does though ,need to be borne in mind that the internet campaign surrounding her past activities only gathered pace for one reason and not the popularised version of the 'baying wolves gratuitously sniffing for blood' , but rather because intelligent and professional people with impressive aviation backgrounds were awaiting explanations.

An input from Sam may also be interesting too , because without the 'internet hate campaign' , then his reputable business may also have suffered irreparable damage.

If the person in question is indeed showing a little contrition , then that can only be good. Not only for her causes , but also for her.

To the people who say that we, that baying wolves, should give it a rest, I can only suggest that the best response would be: We will, if She will.

I can only suggest that this is no better than school playground lynch mob mentality.
If Barry was impressed, I too think that is impressive enough.
Or are we determined to reach the 4000 vitriolic post point just for the hell of it?
Let's get this into perspective, there are at least two people on this planet that are doing far more damage with words than She ever did!

Who did more damage to Sam's business than Tracey?

Thank you for your posts regarding what Tracey has been saying about me.

The great majority of people are able to analyse both source and target and come to their own conclusions.

And that's absolutely fine by me.

As for the future of this thread, that depends - as actually it always has - on her.

The show is not over, you were at a performance a few nights ago.

What makes you suggest that it is over?

The Bird in a Biplane's Strategy has been very clear to me for some time...and she has followed it precisely.

Quoting myself from July...


The ac name change was entirely predictable and explainable. When she fell out with Artemis they would have insisted on the removal of their logo and branding from the kite.

Her plan/strategy is also becoming clear as is the fact that she still has sufficient funds to continue.

I expect a lowish profile solo completion of the journey, with a ton of stills and footage of her on her Jack Jones in said kite.

Then a carefully repackaged/re-edited film (which appears still at the production stage) during which the whole PPRuNe saga will be presented (as opposed to hidden/denied) with us lot as very much the bad guys who went nuts over some mis-managed press releases.

As we all should know by now, we live in a world where fake news rules if you have the fund and means to make it so.

I'd leave it to Karma to have the last word now, except to say some of you are way too trusting!
This is 100% the outcome I expected. You guys are focusing way to much on said Bird in a Biplane (that disgusting and reversed-misogynistic epithet is her own invention by the way) and not enough on her backers, connections and PR team, all of whom will be working to a common goal for their own agendas.

Whatever the personal charms of the lady, she blatantly misrepresented the truth and threatened those who exposed her with legal action. She has never come close to withdrawing those remarks or threats.

In due course, she and her team will win through, her publicity will once again soar, the awards and recognition will come and us on here will all be portrayed as a sorry lot of internet trolls.

Fake news brought us Brexit and Trump; the Bird in a Biplane is small fry in the overall scheme of things.

Let this thread die, get on with your lives, be true to yourself, observe the b/s all around, but don't let it be part of your own life.

Peace and respect to those that have contributed here.

Barry is absolutely right to call time on this thread, in my opinion. It is starting to tell us less about TCT and more about those who insist on keeping the thread going.

Perhaps those who persist with reiterating the same old story might like to consider they are becoming very very boring. Give it a rest please.

It appears as though the apologists for TCT are coming out in an orchestrated force.

If you are suggesting that Barry is an apologist for TCT, then I think that is most unfair. He was instrumental in organising the campaign to have her LAA award rescinded (the only one rescinded as far as I am aware) and he also brought this saga to the attention of myself and, I suspect, many others.


If you, and others, wish to pursue this campaign, could I suggest (as I did much earlier) that you concentrate on those organisations and individuals who have NOT rescinded her awards, despite ample evidence that her exploits were misrepresented.

I wonder if anyone, anyone at all, has suggested to Tracey that she stops her part in the charade.

People come on here and say that we should stop hounding her, but has anyone told her to stop her bit?

So what is her continued lying telling us about her?

Well, that's almost true . There certainly has been many thousands of words written on here and elsewhere and the PPRuNers have certainly had their say. What is really needed to put a lid on all this though , is a simple statement/acknowledgement from Tracey to the effect that maybe regrettable mistakes were made .......etc etc.
I don't think it's so much of a "twisting of the knife" , from the contributors here ,but maybe just the frustration showing through that everything that has required an answer has been completely stonewalled.

Nobody could put this thread to bed quicker than Tracey herself .

That is the key point.
A bit of humility would go a long way.

Has a communication yet been received, rescinding the threat of legal action from her lawyers yet? If not, that may help quieten thing down a little.
