All of them Kam, was a great day and also was great value, bloody nippy though.

Can anyone explain what the Huge M is about on the Shackleton, have looked here http://www.shackletonassociation.org.uk/ , and note a Huge P, is this a squadron decal?

I will upload my snaps later from yesterdays outing.

WR963 is getting a much needed repaint. The scaffolding is there to help us work on the wing in safety.

So far all the old paint has been taken back on the top surfaces, areas of corrosion addressed, and we've used yards of ceconite sealing tapes and dope to make it all weatherproof, all done as per the original AP's.

One of our group is a carpenter, and is attacking all the areas of woodwork on the aircraft (balance tab horns, de-icing strips to name but a few). The paint scheme is going to be her old 224sqn colours from back in 1954, so she will be white overall. She will be carrying her own former code letters of "B" on the fuselage, and "M" on the nose.
