    Took some photos at the RAF museum at Hendon (North London) a few weeks ago. Just thought I'd share a couple of my favourites for anyone who might have a slight interest in aircraft pics.

    Thanks. The accident was back in '97 so it's static only now of course.

    I don't know exactly when it was restored to it's current state and put back on display.

    Nice website Scott. I'm off to Duxford this weekend for the airshow. Hopefully I'll get some good shots of these machines in their proper environment :D

    If I get any good ones I'll put them up.

    Thanks. Yep that's a P47 Thunderbolt. It flew too, as did almost all the old aircraft there.
