      ...tentative description....I'm sure we have a photograph of the type on file in what is know as the Imperial 3 Terabyte Brick, which has all my images on it. (Don't worry, they are backed up elsewhere).

      Thanks so much for the kind words - I shall continue to plough on.....into the New year!

          I have solid state, and a couple of drives with these on. I LOST a pc, early on , so I'm well aware of the dreaded consequences.

          I would take you about 11 DAYS to review all the images...the 2012 trip alone included a Duxford Airshow, IWM Duxford, Army Museum of Flying, Fleet Air Arm Museum, Shuttleworth Trust Collection, Yorkshire Air Museum, de Havilland Historic Aircraft Trust and more

          •  there is a 50's italian military jet (0+ / 0-)

            in a barn near me, it may have been lost in a fire, I haven't been that way since, but it is really interesting, the panels are open and all the parts seem there.

            I will look when I can and report. you can decide, heh.

            •  1950s Italian military jet? (0+ / 0-)

              My bet is its a Fiat G.91 (looks rather like a Sabre that shrunk in the wash - mainly because Fiat built Sabres under licence)
