VR-BMB HS125 "Bin Ladens Bomber" 2004

Owned by Bin Laden's father, the mortal remains of this cockpit now languish at the bottom of a flooded quarry near Bristol, as a target for a sub-aqua club.

That looks like the same house that you turned up outside with that Ryanair 737 cockpit in a previous competition picture? Bet the neighbour's love you!!

Yep, I don't live there any more (but the neighbours were really supportive!).

Aircraft that passed through the house, drive and garden were:

CFM Shadow
MB Tiger Cub
B732 Ryanair
HS125 VR-BMB
Tomahawk cockpit
Slingsby Sky
EoN Olympia
Schleicher K4 Rhonlercher
Grunau Baby III

Biggest objections were from my wife, so I bought her a TT from my profits and all was well.....

Strangly I uploaded a scan of VR-BMB to Flickr on 31 December. Here it is before you got its nose.

Thanks for that - I hadn't seen it before it was chopped!
