Hang 'em high….

As the IWM slowly runs out of 'drawing pins', the "little boys bedroom ceiling" is almost full.
Today the P-47 "Oregons Britannia" was being fixed in place and next up, "Etta Jeanne II"…

16.IX.15

A quartet of McLarens were on site today for a photo shoot with the SR-71 - around about a million quids worth if you load up the option lists on them.
From the left (if my model identification is correct) : 570S (£145,000), 675LT (centre) £259,500, orange 650S Spider (£215,000) and the 650S (furthest away) costs £195,000!
Maybe TFC are branching out into the world of exotic car sales!

I could only snap them with a B-29/Victor backdrop...















Meanwhile, elsewhere…














The F-4 and A-10 have now been moved back into the AAM, the U-2 is now hung up and the B-52 was about to be towed back down to sit outside Airspace.

The aircraft belongs to Air Fighter Academy/Hangar 10 based in Northern Germany.

This aircraft has suffered forced landings previously, the most recent being in May 2012…

Hopefully it can be repaired again and back in the air!
