Why don't you send Blue2 a PM? ;)

it's ok, I've seen this now. Pm queries about the museum's aircraft are always welcome by the way. The Anson is still progressing slowly, I'll try and remember to get some photos at the weekend.

Photos would be nice, it's a long time since I've been anywhere near one.

I never went anywhere near the Handley Page building yesterday, I'm next in on Sunday so I'll see what I can do then...

Sorry, I was a tad busy with the Buccaneer, then on to the Victor straight away to prep and run her. I'll do what I can on Sunday for you. Was quite nice once we got Lindy struck up and some warmth into the cockpit. Rich wouldn't know about that with his draughty old Shack... :p

Look forward to the pics! :D

I took a couple of pics of the Anson from the staff side of the HP building on Saturday. I'll post them up for your enjoyment tomorrow :)

As far as I know there's no timescale on this one, she'll be an 'it's done when it's done' resto I believe! Given the state she was in when she arrived, it's amazing how much work has gone into her to get this far...

Interesting to see, thanks for posting. Is it going to fly or taxi? And, what is the small biplane in the foreground of the first picture?
