Well they're about to spend £1.5 million on a new playground!

TT
The £1.5M is a grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation and not from the IWM coffers.
Yes I read the press release. I thought that was rather pricey for a playground!

Re: Shackleton WR963 - [Official Topic]

This is utterly utterly fantastic- the poetry of using a British lorry to help on a British aeroplane also adds to it. Huge congrats on the work to date 👍👍

Re: A-W Meteor NF.14 WS788 Restoration Project

Fab update as ever mate. I suspect many people look forward to these Sunday updates as part of their weekend routines!

If it were me I’d do it in silver so it directly relates to the jet but I can understand the camo itch!

Happy Xmas
