Re: RAF Binbrook Flightline ripped up

It cracks me up. the way RAF Binbrook has been torn apart. I spent seven happy years there on Lincoln's and Canberra's in the fifties. It was always happy station, minimum bull thanks to commanding officers who weren't interested in absolute bull.

Avro Lincoln and Canberra B2

Hi.

Re: New Lancaster due next month....

Hi.
Never mind the Lancaster, how about a Lincoln, I worked on those for a year before we got the Canberra and how about a Canberra B2 or B6. The integral wing tanks on B6 would show up nicely--------Please!

sorry to hijack the thread, but while we're on the subject of creating cartridge starts, if anyone could make me a Canberra one as well, that would be cracking.

Hi Steve.
Have you actually got a Canberra, I hope its a B2, I worked on them in the fifties on 817 Squadron.

Re: Saying hello

We have a funny fault on a Canberra, after about 20 minutes flying, both engines lose power, down about 30%. The engine mechs and fitters are beaten after trying every thing in the book. Rolls Royce are contacted and in due course the 'Boffin' arrives. He carries out an engine run after which she is...
