    Favourite jet of the day has to be the ME262, it just had that something that kept me captivated for a while.

    Great pics, looks like a first-rate museum. I didn't know there were any Defiants still around! I'd love to see it. Well, that and everything else, of course.

    Nice pics. Hendon is well worth a visit if you can (and its free entry - at least was).

    I wonder if they are going to fly Black 6 up there again. I doubt it after she was rebuilt after the crash some years back.

    Very. nice. Thanks for sharing.. cool to see a defiant.

    What is the significance of the burned out plane? Bristol Mercury engine? Was that specific aircraft of historical significance?

    A Malta defender perhaps? One of the brave little Gladiators?

    Going from memory it was found at the bottom of a Fjord in Norway. It was operating from the frozen water when the German bombed the lake, broke the ice and down it went.

    You will now find that I am totally wrong and someone set fire to it after a heavy night out.

    Haha, the dangers of mixing alcohol and aviation. Funny, Glider.

    I wonder how many Salamanders are left today? That would be something to see.

    Great pics. That salamander is a rare bird.

    These little WAC's look so tiny next to those Mighty Mustangs.
