Thread: Mobile phones for the elderly.....

A) Silly me, Richard, of course I'm a BOF - as SWMBO often tells me!
 
B) Now just hang on a minute, Tim - I'm not that near death

Thread: Its a what?

Aldershot being my home town, I remember the excitement at discovering the Avro Aldershot existed whilst poring over a reference book in the public library when I was about ten years old, whilst being extremely disappointed that it didn't look more like a Spitfire
That was in the days when 10-year-old's frequented public libraries......

I think you've put the kiss of death on this thread with that one, Phil! Darned if I know.........thought it might be a Maule but the tail - and a lot of other bits - are wrong
 
Anyway, here's something to resuscitate everyone:
 

I've another pic which has the maker's name on the hanger behind but that would be too easy..........

'Why do mobile phone companies not make a simple phone that just makes and receives phone calls, has a big keypad and a screen that I can see without changing my spectacles and provide a service that works all over the country, even in some city streets!? (Yes I am a BOF)'
 
You're a man after my own heart, Richard, whatever a BOF is

So was 'Twilight Tears' pilot Lt Hubert 'Bill' Davis, who apparently named it and flew 35 missions from Duxford?

Of course, with that layout, it might even have been a Moulinex Mixmaster, perhaps! I wonder if that's where they got the idea?
 
I'm gonna have to try harder, Gemma

I wasn't very good with radials - I looked at the Twin Wasp too and couldn't match it with the piccies I found
 
How about this one, then? Sorry about the cast...........

Handed back with much relief, Gemma! I do have some street-cred to maintain, you know..........

Anyway, I'll have to hang my head over that one - as you can see from here the Curtiss is remarkably similar. Looking again, the tail profile differs, the inter-plane struts don't have the same stagger..........oh, bah, humbug

Ok Phil, I believe it is an Army-Curtiss Racer (No.2?), winner of the 1922 Pulitzer Trophy at Detroit.

Well done, Peter - seems they had some problems with the NACA cowl. Interesting article here. One can perhaps see with these designs some influence on 30's modellers' ideas.

I'll leave this for you all overnight..........

Well, I was hoping to have an early night but you know how it is..................
 
It's a Lightning F53 ZF581, at BAE Systems, Rochester Airport, displayed in 56 Sqdn 'Firebirds' markings. Served with Royal Saudi Air Force and then BAE Warton.
 
I must get out more

Oh dear, I think I've just confirmed what my OH has long thought!
Pete

Oh, and it's the RAE colour scheme - I worked there back in the very early 70's - much of it gone now, though

Buccaneer S.2C XV344 at Farnborough, 22nd March 2003!

Not sure that's playing ball - looking up the reg, young Ben - but I admire:
a) your initiative, and
b) your restraint

Oh, in case Gemma gets it too quickly, what is it sheltering beneath?
 
Pete

Ok, another one for you, folks - unusual control system on this:

Wouldn't be Southampton, would it, Ben?
