    I’m not sure why his wife is listed as the owner
    Daughter of the creator of the collection?...

      It is indeed sadly missed....
      Why be your own worse critic, that's what the forum is for.

          Why would there be? Foreign registered, foreign pilot, no fatalities. More likely it will just be a safety report submitted by pilot in a future bulletin.

          I doubt you’ll see anything for months.

            'Lil Margaret' is now at ARCo Duxford - some distant shots here of her in a dismantled state shortly after delivery and showing some evidence of the damage sustained.

              Very bent prop with the reduction gear still attached to it....
              If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

                How do blades get bent forward? Might be a daft question but can't figure that one out

                  From blade strikes at high power. Low power blades bend backwards.

                    When an aircraft propeller rotates under power it grabs air to move forward and its efficiency depends on the density of the medium, the greater the altitude the air becomes less dense the less efficient the propeller is. Even so the bending moment on the propeller blade is in a forward direction.
                    When producing no forward thrust the bending moment on the blade due to drag is in a rearwards direction.
                    Substitute a more solid medium , then for one revolution under power the blade can move further forward than it does in air and the bending moment increases in a forward direction. No power it grabs nothing and bends backwards.

                      ''The pilot reported that he was experienced in operating historic military aircraft and had completed P-51 training one year before the accident. He explained that N51BS was heavier than other P-51s he had flown because it had been restored to its original configuration, which included heavier materials and inert weaponry.

                      The accident occurred during takeoff from Woodchurch Airfield. The runway was 750 m long and the pilot reported that its grass surface had become soft due to rain. He commented that he did not apply full power immediately to avoid causing the aircraft to roll in the opposite direction to propeller rotation. As the aircraft moved, its wheels sank into the ground and it did not reach the desired speed for takeoff. At the end of the runway the pilot turned the aircraft to avoid a ditch.

                      It struck a fence and came to rest approximately 180 m beyond the end of the runway. The pilot stated that because he had successfully operated a different P-51 from another grass strip of similar dimensions to Woodchurch he did not perform a performance calculation. He reflected that he had not experienced the ground becoming as soft as it was on this occasion, and he had not considered the higher weight of N51BS.''
