    What is equally intriguing is that in 1938 the RAF still relied on fabric covered biplanes to a large extent. Thankfully Hugh Dowding, with the support of a few farsighted politicians had the situation in hand ... Just.

    At risk of derailing the thread (but hey, it is NP!) there is a superb thread over on PPRuNe with WW2 veterans describing their war experiences. I challenge anyone to read it without the odd grit in the eye moment...

    Some seriously brave yet modest men, to whom we owe a great deal...

    Came home from work to see something that I thought looked like a Lanc, and now I know! Thanks for sharing, nice to know I'm not going mad! :):)

    Didn't see it, but pretty sure I heard it fly over as I walked home from the station :)
