    1950's/60's Archive Part 17: RAF Wyton BoB 1963

    These pictures were taken at the Battle Of Britain Day, RAF Wyton on September 14th 1963.
    Photos by Gerald Lawrance, digitised and made available by Tony Clarke.
    Thanks also to Ken Elliot, who has a similar set in colour on AbPic, making my research easier.

    Brilliant pictures again - XD593/50 DH Vampire T.11, 8 FTS,RAF - now on display in Hangar 1 at Newark Air Museum.

    IIRC XD593 was still in those markings when it arrived at Newark in spring 1973!

    What really matters is what you do with what you have.

    Whirlwind HAS7 XK907: The 'nose' survives in open store at Midland A.M. The plan was to create an internal exhibit to mount a locally-produced Alvis Leonides engine.

    The machine has relevance as it was, for some years, part of the Alvis 'fleet' based at Baginton used for Leonides testing/development.

    Another superb set of images.

    A Blenheim, Beaufighter and Beaufort - together in one Museum. Who'd have thought that possible in 1967?

    I've found one more shot of the T-39A, pity the dayglo doesn't show in monochrome:
