Great Pics, Thanks for Sharing.

You missed an opportunity to capture that smoke and sell it on e-bay. I'm sure some Spit-Tragics would have bought it

TT, what is the significance of the nine crosses on the fuselage?
And why the porthole behind the cockpit?
And many thanks for these wonderful pictures.

Great stuff!

Next time please make a sound recording too!

Is the Griffon concerned an original or an ex Shackleton engine? If the latter, what effect does this have on performance?

VERY NICE! THANKS FOR THE PICS! its always good to see these planes come back to life like that.

Actually, its hard to tell but there was a pilot right? no remote starter or something?
