I think Richard has it. He's right about the tailplane, but I think it falls slightly lower than the main wing, and is therefore hidden by it.

Re: 622 Squadron ORB

Thanks for that Alan I dropped Howard an email a couple of weeks ago, but so far I have had no answer. I've not had an answer from Geoff Reynolds either, Secretary of the Mildenhall Register.

Re: Aircraft Identification Challenge No: 36

Re: Challenges

Thanks for that Bruno. I had thought about it myself, as, enjoyable though they are (at least when I win! :D ) the forum was looking more like a competition page!
