Without a parachute I would assist you gladly. With regard to the mossie isn't
it sad that so few were kept in good nick after the war, I know they had major
problems with the wood airframe rotting but there was a culture of"get rid quick"
after the war and hundreds of these iconic Aircraft were simply burnt, also why
didn't someone in authority sanction the preservation of two or three Halifax
bombers alo there are no Short Stirlings left ,The RAFs first four engine heavy
all trashed in indecent haste, we should rejoice however as there will soon be
three Avro Lancasters flying that's a definite with possibly another four, what a spectacle that would be eh Mike seven Lancs in formation.
Regarding the Helo project my son and I managed to purchase three of these complicated rotor craft and have enough parts to make a even larger model, powered
by a very neat turbine engine which generates a even neater 20SHP ,incredible for
such a small turboshaft power pack I will inform of progress, Lady luck still
wont give old fed a break however as while testing this turbine in the Airframe
the clutch mechanism suffered total disintegration, pieces of metal struck me in the head , not that it could do any harm there, the puncture wounds were bad enough for a couple of staples but I had no intention of taking up their time in
Casualty so we used Ductape with a dressing of course, Ductape is very good for holding wounds tight and stops leakage from all but the most serious of lacerations.
Well I am off to battle the SLEEP DEMONS now good night all
Kindest Regards fed
PS beloved is not happy with Ductape repairs to fed and insists on a visit to out patients tomorrow well today, but I am not going, she said I looked silly, well
that's OK then , the sillier the better eh Mike, take care mate.
