That is far better a question than the other would have been Graeme.

Edit: It is

Thanks mate. Surprised it wasn't on Mel's list. Then again this is a surprising thread!

I'll make it open house, at this stage. Glorious looking day outside and I'm going to get out there soon.

Enjoy your break/holiday!

Cheers.

Good day skwinty.

I'll keep you company for a while, and I bet Noyade is lurking..............

Evening mate!

Was yours military?

So I noticed.

Is it younger than it looks?

I base that on its' dorsal VHF aerial.

Do I see a Pratt & Whitney Wasp?
