  3. Elsinore
  4. Euterpe
  5. Explorer
  6. Eddystone
  7. Ettrick
  8. Empyrean
  9. Elysian
  10. Euryalus
  11. Echo
  12. Endymion
  13. Everest
  14. Enterprise.
But Ensign was enough for me - over to you India.

Thanks Noyade,

A very elegant-looking aircraft but I wonder if the fin was large enough for the engine-out cases.

Sorry, no new cockpit photos in my Quizzes folder, so Open House.

The brown striped cushion under the purple one is Sears Roebuck 1960's fabric - the best example is the recliner used by Frasier's dad in the TV series - not the height of designer chic........

Good to know that. I think however that the Sears Roebuck was already a second recover of the original.

The F-111 gear:
Unusual arrangement, but it seems to work well.

I've always been fascinated by the F1-11 ejection capsule concept. It must of been a little strange for those who did eject.

Yep. All yours Bob.

Dunno why, but I was impressed with the coffee thermos embedded at the back....

As no one has taken the open house invite, I'll offer this one up. It's a bit easy but the only one I have to hand.
