Third row for me

screen.

Maybe I should request Open House, need to do something else today, too…...

Lightning Mate 3rd Aug 2011 12:43

One of your better ideas.

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 12:45

Thanks Mate.

Maybe I should request Open House,
Is it or isn't it then?

OPEN HOUSE if correct

Lightning Mate 3rd Aug 2011 14:07

Nicely done Martin. :ok:

'Orribly sticky out there is it?

Martin has requested Open House.

Ridge Runner 3rd Aug 2011 14:12

Yep - 31 ish and very humid, but sunny today despite forecasts of storms. Spent an hour at the Air Force Museum today - nice machines in there sadly rotting away. :(

Lightning Mate 3rd Aug 2011 14:22

Hope you took some pics.

I'm not going to be greedy and take the OH just yet - I'm sure RD will be along later.

Ridge Runner 3rd Aug 2011 14:52

I see what you mean.

Why do people not preserve historic aircraft under cover? :ugh:

RegDep 3rd Aug 2011 15:04

Hi RR,

Almost all exhibits in Berlin-Gatow Lufwaffe Museum are outside….

Here comes the greedy Reg and grabs the OH:

WE've had it before, Reg! :(

Lightning Mate 3rd Aug 2011 15:08

Martin,

I'm old enough to remember when the first MiG-25R was seen by the West.

Everyone was worried about it's claimed M2.5 speed, until it was realised it could only sprint that for two minutes or so.

Why do people not preserve historic aircraft under cover?
I know, particularly when the whether is always hot, hot, hot!!!! There were lots of others inside - Hunter, Spitfire, Hurricane, Ouragan, Mystere IVA, MIG-21, SU-7, Fury, Lysander, etc.... However, all suffer from the Indian way of hand painting everything, and also their heath robinson way of restoring things!!!!

WE've had it before, Reg!
Tell me what it is, and I'll withdraw it. Didn't see on the List.

Lightning Mate 3rd Aug 2011 15:12

It's that special long range jobber innit!
