    I loved the ground crew standing under the running props. Man that think was a beast. Reminds me of a heavy weight fighter. No neck and all muscle.

    She's a big girl alright, but that sort of makes her kind of attractive..

    Why can't we get a better model of her in 1:72 scale than the Airfix kit?!!

    Unfortunately there is on record an occurrence when a WAAF driver at a Stirling base - and used to driving under the spinning props of Stirlings all the time – tried the same trick when going to pick up the crew of a diverted Lancaster………….. :shock:

    Ouch. My old man was a regional manager for a large freight forwarding company. Had a forklift driver run right through the propeller arc. Threw him in pieces onto the second story roof of the wherehouse.

    Yep, it doesn't matter how much ointment you have or aspirins you take, it still stings a bit.
