Howdy chaps Operation Think Of Somewhere To Take Mrs Dixie For Her Birthday is gathering, not pace as such, more like moss It doesn't help that she doesn't have a passport though Or that Niagara Falls has been her only suggestion (#misplaced optimism).

Spent today pulling apart more of P7350's Merlin. Took out the camshafts, manifold, flame traps and ignition harness. She's looking a bit forlorn now, no panels, no cockpit seat, no undercarriage, big chunks of the engine gone and sat up on trestles. The fuel tank will be coming out in the next week or so as well. The Lanc has three of her props off, iirc she'll be getting two new engines and LF has no prop either. The two MkXIX Spits have had their wing tanks removed. In fact, in a complete reversal of the usual situation TE311 is the only fighter in one piece

Somewhere during the process I managed to rip some chunks out of my hands Including one nice cut on my finger that just reopens whenever I move it. Bugger.

It does have the advantage that they don't speak foreign there which would be a benefit for Mrs D.

Don't let the others know about your meager air defense!

Well, cellphone tossing and wife carrying seems to be. At least this one looks somewhat athletic.

NC Thread Brothers Summit was a great time last night! Even though it was a weeknight and some of us have to work so it was too short, it was great to catch up with Andy after several years and for him and Torsten to get a chance to meet.

That's okay. I just got my 'Fawlty Towers' DVD set. Nice.

How dare you!?! There's no rust on any of our kites. There is a lot of dirty oil though, but mineral oil doesn't seem to cause the same reaction that the synthetic stuff we use on jets does.

I'm sorry that I just could not get away for it. But I'm working up a east coast trip before Torsten leaves the USA.

I'm sure that's why they used to paint them so often. And one reason why the USAAF went to bare skin as soon as they felt able.
