I know Putin’s stupid “Special Military Operation” has caused the Russian AirForce to scratch pretty deep into the reserve stock pile but WTF am I supposed to do with this POS ?

Leeming?, no we can’t land there, the RAF closed it..

What about Church Fenton?

Nope that’s gone too

Lynham?

No short sightedness built on the sides of the runway thus rendering it unusable.

How about there, Coltishall?

Nope that’s full of Perverts and solar panels..

Manson then?

Nope refugees and lorry parking..

Well we could try Brize but then the chances of finding room to park might be difficult.

Does flight planning have to be done out here on the windy, cold and wet aircraft pan when there is a perfectly agreeable Starbucks* just over there?
* Other comfortable ( overpriced ) Coffee shops with comfort snack foods are available

We're never going to get one washing machine in the back of this, let alone three.

Turn left at Sainsbury's, hang a right at Dorothy Perkins and you'll see John Lewis straight ahead....

Why they want to invade Milton Keynes is beyond me, the road system is a nightmare.

I think Bunty fell off Spunky Lad at the big fence about here, we better go back and see if she is all right. Um... by the way is this an aeroplane?

(is it a P-40? Looks like one but hood seems to be all perspex, thought they usually had a fair bit of metal framing?)

Yak 3 for my money. Sliding canopy, and fairing on the Horizontal stabiliser seems right too.

It's a lend lease Hurricane.... Why do you think I keep mentioning them, other wise some of my captions don't fit I know the canopy is wrong.

I would say its a Yak 1

Yak 3 had a teardrop canopy
