I too thought that the image was from the 40's, well done that man.
There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.

Thank you for your kind comments gentlemen,that photo was actually taken by my eight year old daughter!!!.I was compiling some photos for Jonathon Falconer for the Haynes Short Stirling manual,the panel was featured.Sadly I didn't get that photo to him before it went to press....there are not that many photos of flight engineers at work...so I thought I'd have a play and do one...I was very pleased with the results too!!

Hi Hindenburg

Great work! Always fantastic to see the Stirling brought back to life!

I prefer the colour photos - after all that's what the crews saw - the grainy, fuzzy, monochrome pics are only what the cameras of the day gave us.
