Sorry Mike but I had to re-read your last a couple of times, as the word hot and Highlands don't normally go together from my experience :lol: HAving said that I love Scotland anytime,although I've only been in non-snowy times!

Re: French Porter

A colourful beast indeed and looks good on grass too.

I think I've seen more "artistic" designs on PC-6s than any other type - often French ones!

Re: D Day Daks list requests

If anyone needs the full list as seen crossing the coast near Beachy Head then here it is. Excuse basic types(!) Although quite strung out it was a sight and sound to behold as well as a somewhat moving occasion. I did take photographs but only on a shortish lens so quality not good and conditions n...

Courtesy of PlaneBase T.206H c/n T20609217 started life as N617S in 2016 then to HB-TUS until 10/2017 hence the Swiss flag. I'm guessing a delivery stage?

Re: Canary country circular tour 19-04-2019, stage 4 - Felthorpe

Almost certainly Chilton DW.1 G-JUJU. Shape looks right and Googling for images show right colours (or as much as you can see!).

More Norfolk gems - lovely. Felthorpe has changed a bit since the mid-80s when I used to visit.

Re: Old Warden season premiere, 5th May 2019

Good cross-section there Andy. I have to say the Bronco looks quite intimidating head on. Nice to see larger types on the deck too. Tiger 'KT looks very smart in those marks.
