Most Beautiful Aircraft

I had the good fortune to go to Hawker
Restorstions workshop. What a place!
 
another point about 944's flight over Berlin was that he said that he was at 30,000 feet, well within the capabilities of an ME 109 or FW 190 and all of the German heavy anti-aircraft guns.

Well we lost PR aircraft to Flak up to 40,000 feet.... The idea was to fly routes that minimised exposure, working around other operations that the Germans had more interest in. and balancing cloud cover, contrail level and the required pictures...

I quite like the Vampire.
Those things used to terrify me when I was a very young child in the early fifties. We lived 15 miles North of RAF Aldergrove (in an ex-service man's cottage) and they flew training exercises over over our house. They came screaming in, low enough to see the pilots.
