I believe an uncle of Mrs B_R trained to qualify as an RAF Pilot in one of those in Arizona ... he also had a brief appearance in the propaganda film " Thunder Birds " .... see pics below ... not self taken ...

... the aircraft looks the same type .
Landing gear looks different. May be to take the rough trainees landings?
The tail is a different shape, may be an older version of the plane.

And just for fun, the Harray half marathon today.

Don't know what some folk go on about. Piece of the proverbial, taking pictures of runners. :)
 
not got its origional engine though, looks like an Isuzu conversion, the origional AEC engines had an inline pump and used to shudder on tickover, rather charming to listen to

I guessed that bus photo might bring the spotters out.

As I took it a bloke tapped me on the shoulder and said:

"That's an RML, it has the extra window in the top which allowed them to add two extra seats"

He then nodded at me a couple of times and happily wandered away along the promenade.

Is the Harray Potter still open? I haven’t been to Orkney for many years but loved the place.
Andrew is still going despite a few health scares over the years
