In the last image, the open doors are the GTC or Gas Turbine Compressor doors. If you look at the RAF K model Hercs, these have the same doors. The doors open before the GTC is started and once started the ATM Generator will be started using air tapped off from the GTC in order to provide electrical power on the ground. Nice to see you and your dad today.

I hope mine come out that well, very well done.

The Anson was certainly something a bit different.

The Anson came to pick up the F-16 pilot and return him to Duxford, well that's what the commentator said.
