    I am surprised those buildings don't have electrified barbed wire fences around them! Doors wide open and few people about...
    Jaw dropping sight though.

    Hi All,
    Trolly Aux........................


    Nice to see somebody actually turning German engines around and in particular making such a good job on them as Vintage always do...

    No need for electrified fences, last time I was there I saw mountain lion tracks in the yard...
    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.

    It's also pretty hard to run off with a crankshaft or a block from a V-12.

    ....wow. Jumo 211....x 2. Enjoyed Kermit’s self-censorship of the guessed recipient. If I live long enough to see a flying Stuka, I will have to travel over the pond to watch it fly. The German warehouse was amazing. Roll on part 3.
