Sounds like a great experience. I really like Adam Savage's enthusiasm for the things he likes. I need to make friends with Peter Jackson. It's good to see TVAL is happy to operate in this manner after their quiet time over the past few months.

The episode tonight is not from his 2018 visit.That was just a test run. The actual episode was filmed in April 2019 just before Easter. Forum member and my good friend Bevan Dewes is one of the two pilots featured in the episode. He's the Fokker pilot.
The episode was rather good. Just a pity we don't have smell o' vision, for the oil, and if Peter Jackson ever needs a bit coin, Dogfight flights could be the next big thing. I really must go down to Hood aerodrome. Anyway if you able this episode is worth watching.

Thanks for putting up that link Dave. Some of my favourite shots of the episode were the ones inside the "factory" - you can see the admiration for the craftsmanship. What an incredible facility, and thinking back to the start of TVAL, what a concept!
