Recommended Posts

We have had 5 episodes, so what has happened to the other 5 because at 9pm tomorrow on Freeview, it is Aircrash Confidential?

 

I read that there are only 5 episodes in this series. Bruce is currently in Australia, he was visiting the museum at Cairns a few days ago.

little vidi of him on the AAAM FB page riding on their new Leopard, straddling the cannon no less

ARRRrrghgh,

possibly the only show in history that went up in popularity and down in the number of episodes. :(

 

I guess it's up to Mr Wedlock to entertain us now , he better start practicing his Cockney Slang before the filming starts.

I was fooled by the Radio Times stating "E5 of 10" for last week's episode.

 

Just have to wait for Series 4.

From Bruce's FB-page:

 

Dear friends,

Greetings from Down Under!

Following on from all your questions, just to let you all know unfortunately we have only just been made aware that the new series (3) has actually been split into two. And the next five episodes will be shown in the coming months.

Some really exciting stories including Panther Tank, Sherman Tanks, Spitfires, AMAZING Panzer treasures from Russia, paying our respects to veterans of WWI amongst some other very cool locations and restorations.

Really can't wait for you to all see, glad you have been enjoying the series so far.

Happy Days,

Cheers, Bruce.

I had a chat with Bruce yesterday in Cairns. Hes working on a bunch of episodes and is in the process of promoting another show which will focus on military heros. I had a look at a trailer of the new show, looks very interesting. Hes planning to do more episodes down here. Hes a great bloke and knows his stuff. Hopefully he will be back here soon.

Good news!
yes indeed and it makes more sense now, half the stuff they were promoting last year hasn't been shown yet.

amazing panzer treasures, cool locations and resto's, can't get much better than that :-D

 

Episode 5 was really good though, can't believe Bruce is jumping with WW2 era technology para gear at his age, safer than what the Germans used but looks dangerous at any age really. Couldn't ask for a better spokesperson for this hobby IMHO

something to hold you over til the 2nd half of S2 airs. A tour of his private collection, Two 251 pioneers under resto, and the AAAM Panther .

very cool, as good as the best of the regular episodes. Live feed cuts out at the very end due to connection problems but still 38 minutes well spent if you like really rare miltaria

Of course that's 21.00 in the U.K. and 22.00 on Quest + 1

 

I wouldn't know, the Quest website just said 22.00. But 21.00 it is then, thanks for the correction :-D

Finally got to see this episode. I liked it. I do, however, remain curious as to where the hell he got the Panther from!! As stated on the program - they are as rare as rocking horse dropings......

Except the Panther tank is Not Bruce Cromptons, his company Axis track Services are restoring for the owners, the Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, look on their Facebook page for pics of its restoration progress which started back in Jan 2016

You have to look past the patter. He goes to places and meets people with amazing vehicles, we get the chance to look over his shoulder for nothing really. Us ordinary Jack and Jills would not otherwise see these places, people, and equipment if it was not for this type of programme. I have spoken to someone locally who has Cent and Cheiftan ARVs. and I cannot get through the gate. So without spending a fortune (which I have not got) It is the only way to see them.
