    Cheers Bobo; I prefer #3 since it is 320mm at 1/160 hand held non IS.

    I thought plane engines were bigger than this:

    LOL, that was my initial reaction when I first scanned over the pics.

    I see what you mean Steve, I bet that's so they could put a turbine there in any future development.

    But I see that won't be happening Wikipedia

    Also explains the (apparent) lack of anything connecting the engine to the airframe!

    I prefer the first two of the series - the turbine Wessex.

    I think it's a shame outdoor exhibits often looks so 'mothballed', I'd like them unwrapped each day, looking ready for flight

    Good grief, what a nice suprise Steve when I scrolled through your pictures and came across the Vulcan I worked on XM 575 when when I was an Aircraft Electrical Mechanic stationed at RAF Scampton 1962-65. I didn't know she was still alive and on show so this is a definite visit for me in the not-too-distant future. A nice series of images to go with her as well.

    Cor Keith, this is truly a very wide community. I never expected to find anybody that worked on the aircraft, but I got a couple more.

    It is at East Midlands Nottingham Airport, but they seem to be using the wings as a rain shelter for all sorts.

    Your right Dave; you need something to bring it to life. Haven't worked that one out apart from photographing aircraft on take off, but only light stuff miles away this day and then it started chucking it down. I got it all worked as well/

    I don't know John, I can't see how they even get here. It is surrounded by high banks. Cheers
