Re: Google Streetview plane-spotting.

Not life size, but model of G-ACSS Comet at Hatfield:

Harrier at RAF Wittering on A1:

There used to be a Lightning here,

but it's gone - the 'overhead satellite view' shows it in situ a few years earlier.

Re: 3rd Party LP-E6N Batteries

Do the 3rd-party batteries provide 'battery usage' data on the camera screen icon, please? I'd seen reports when they first came out that only Canon ones would indicate the usage.

Thanks

Re: ID question - Old Warden 7 July

It looks more like a Boeing 757 to me - wingtips, especially, and the back of the engines are smooth edges.
