    Point-n-shoots can be frustrating sometimes, but you scored some great shots! :thumbleft:

    Good shots. Fellow posters...please take note. All on this forum are not as educated as you might hope. Give us some context: Where were these taken/ What aircraft (I know it's a Beau, but more data would be nice) / what setting / who are you / what do you know about this machine / any comments...any observations? / mechanical, structural, markings...etc, / help us out.

    I observed it is an aeroplane which shocked me at first I have to be honest. Its a forum mate no one here is claiming to be fully qualified historians but I have no doubt some on here have more than enough knowledge to be.

    Theres some info on the beau and the museum here.
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/aircraft-pictures/raaf-beaufighter-photos-21711-2.html

    Also whom I am is of no interest to anyone so lets keep to the aircraft.

    Thanks Heinz, you're too modest...thanks again for posting the pics. Museum setting I gather. I've always liked the Beaufighter after reading a great tale called 'Night Fighter' by J.R.D. "Bob" Braham. Ironically, those recountings of war contain great stories but little to no information on the craft themselves, other than a tidbit here or there...but they plant within the reader the fascination for the aeroplane(s), so seeing one up close is a rare treat, even if it's through secondhand photos. I'm always looking to learn from those who may know a little more than what's in front of my eyes. This forum may contain a few...maybe?
