    Hi everyone.

    My name is Rob and I'm a keen aviation enthusiast on second world war aircraft and modern alike.

    I am a member of the Midland Air Museum at Coventry, England and work on a number of cold war jets and not so cold also. The types I have had time on are;

    DeHavilland Sea Vixen
    Vulcan
    NF14 Meteor
    DH Dove
    F104 Starfighter.

    The Starfighter is my current project at the museum and is probably the most complex of all airframes so far.

    If anyone would like to know more, please feel free to ask any questions.

    I look forward to posting on the forum and chatting with fellow aviaton buffs.

    See ya soon.

    Welcome!!

    I worked on -104s in Mojave CA. One company I worked for did flight test work with one. For another individual I worked for ,we starting restoring one that was made of some salvaged parts from Darrel Greenamyer's Red Baron. The owner eventually sold it as it was becoming a money pit.
