    Lately I've started to collect Original Aircraft Photos and so far have amassed a massive collection of 11. Hey, you have to start somewhere.

    First up Bristol Beaufort

    The note on the back of this picture states:

    TAKING ON A CARGO OF "TIN FISH" IN ENGLAND

    ENGLAND - Aerial torpedoes on trolleys being loaded on Beauford (misspell?) Aircraft at an airport in England.
    These explosives are used in operations against enemy warships. This is one of the first pictures received showing the Aerial Torpedoes.

    Photo passed by the British Censor. - RO-1/15/41 (s)

    Nice photo VB.:thumbright: I had not ever seen that one before. The torpedoes look a little large for that aircraft. Could be the perspective though.:cool:

    That one with the blokes looks like it could be a Shellback initiation, crossing the equator thing! They can be rather bizaar and brutal.

    It seems that attachments are not working at the moment either which is a shame. I'm sure they would of been interesting shots.

    You've got some neat ones there. The B-10 and YB-12 are ones I haven't sen before. I don't know about anyone else, but the Keystone always looked like a flying deathtrap to me.

    Yea, I have to agree with you on that!

    Fresh batch came in today.

    MB 210 - resize.JPG
    The Bloch MB.210. This picture must have been taken after France fell as if you look closely under the port engine there appears to be an Me 110 in the hanger. The Germans used the MB.210 for training in 1942. They were also used by Bulgaria Romania but the camo scheme appears to be French.

    He 111 early - resize.JPG
    An early He 111 with a collapsed landing gear. I could not figure out the which unit it was from "56 E12"

    Can't see anything under the port engine of the Bloch Dave, apart from bomb bay doors, but the aircraft in the hangar, under the starboard engine, aren't Bf110's. The one on the left looks like it might be a ...darn! Forgotten the name - but a twin-engined French aircraft, which looks a bit like the much later Flamant! It might even be a DH Rapide or Dragon.

    ie starboard - Dammit, nice catch and thanks for not calling me a dumb a<cough> :oops:

    Here's a bigger pic. There are 2 in the hanger, the one on the right (the hand without my watch) looks like an Me 110 to me. The one on the left I could not make out but you might very well be correct on both.

    Don't think so. The landing gear legs either have the yokes outboard, or possibly inverted 'U' shaped, or it's rear spats or splash guards, whereas the '110 has inboard,'straight' legs, with the wheels outboard.

    The Me-110 has straight landing gear struts to the inside of the wheels. The pic shows an upside down "U" shape over the wheel with the strut going up from the middle of it. Don't know what it is though:?:

    Edit - Okay, Oops on me. I didn't go to page 2 to see essentially the same answer.....
