Now that is a very interesting Christmas puzzle. I wonder if we can solve it.
Looks to be a Mk XVI.
Tired camouflage but with the fuselage painted silver between the tail and the fuel bay. That is very unusual.
The underside of the wing is carrying the RAF serial. Looks to be TE or possibly TD. Higher resolution might reveal more.
So post WWII in the UK. Damage cat 5.
Why has the front screen been removed.
When I can access my library and the guests are awake I'll home in on the unit codes then trawl through the post WWII accidents.
