Can't imagine this will take too long. Last flew this type a while back.

BEagle, as I said to your esteemed colleague Flt Lt Freddi only 28 years ago - "You have control".

Lets face it BEagle, when you used to fly them, they used semaphore - not radios!

The IL 14 photo is my own (as all my competition photos are). It's in the Beijing University Space and Aeronautics faculty museum and as you can see, it's not in particlarly good shape.

BEagle, it's an Arado 234. If I'm correct, it's open house as I have to go to work now.

Certainly got a lot more hair than Beags ever had (which used to be a similar colour though).
Could they be related......?

It has definitely some French touch, what about the Deperdussin No 43 ?

the beast is correct. It is a 1909 Deperdussin. You have control.

Yep BEags, that looks like me going to work - but without the uniform of course! Mrs W liked the picture - she now has it on her phone so it comes up when I call! She sends sloppy kisses.

Glad you liked the piccie - and regards to Mrs W, of course! Kisses gratfully accepted - and returned similarly.

Liked your advice, courtesy of 'Chopper', to S_S!! Flouncing off to the Women's Auxiliary Balloon Corps as he did...

Is the piccie a Me 108?
