We had a great drive to Kemble Airport (nr Cirencester) this morning. We might not be able to go abroad, but I managed to park under a BA plane that I think they will be restoring on a stand rather than scrapping like all the other BA planes lined up :(

Dare I post another photo? Of course I will :D

 

This one is quite poignant to me, as it is the world's last complete RAF Brittania transport plane in existence - and one my late father was Flight Engineer on. It wasn't open to the public today, but I have previously been inside and sat on the seat he would have sat on himself. They have retired RAF people who show you round and tell stories. No computers onboard and if they got lost, they could put a small periscope up through the cockpit roof and navigate by the stars :).

Superb aircraft.  One of the last to be developed while my wife’s grandfather was in charge at the Bristol Aircraft Co. - which he ran through the war.
