Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Thanks for the kind comments

We got talking to one of the volunteers who was re-painting the nose art on the B-25 Mitchell, he then gave us a tour of the storage hangar and the restoration hangar

Very difficult to shoot in here very dark and very cramped

I was surprised to see this model tucked away in the corner, apparently Kaman who are based nearby were very interested in building it under licence

Finally we went in the restoration hangar were we saw this which is very close to going back on display. Again, the level of workmanship is unbelievable

The plane is a Burnelli CBY-3 Loadmaster and this is the only example that was built.

It's difficult to get a true idea of the plane from my shots as this was quite an unusual design, so I have included a link to an article on the restoration which shows one of the few images that exist of the complete aircraft
