    A lovely machine indeed. Sadly borrowed.
    If it was mine I would think about selling it now.
    What with these latest jacket price increases I might be able to buy with the proceeds as many as 2 or 3 Eastman jackets !!!

    Fantastic photos! My dear old Dad did his initial flight training on a Tiggie with the RNZAF and he absolutely loved them.

    Alan, is that the TM based at Duxford? A mate and I intend getting up there maybe this summer and giving it a go and yes I'd for sure wear one of my jackets! So far I've been up in a DC3, Harvard (ANJ3) and DH Rapide, ironically sans flight jacket!! 3 Eastman's or slightly less will get you a 30 minute spin in a Mk 9 Spitfire as I'm sure you know and from what I gather is just awesome and something I really intend to do, sooner rather than later.

    I'm not sure, I got the figure from HM Gov site so I'd imagine before stopages but it'll be whatever spin they want to put on the figure

    Average is totally distorted by the ludicrous wages many Chief Executives are paying themselves these days.

    Take 1000 workers on £20,000 a year, add in a Chief Exec on £23,000,000 and the "Average" wageof the 1001 jumps to over £23300 a year

    Going back to the original topic: I checked ELC's prices again today and find myself having a headache. I guess I'll never own an ELC, especially since I expect the jackets I ordered will fit me perfectly. I wonder how ELC's sales are after the price increase...

    Was checking out the A2 and also the B-3 (as I was reminded by Patton of his jacket today). Nothing special.

    Jeez Louise! Wonder how much they're going up and if it's a straight percentage across the board for all the leather and sheepskins?
