Re: PMs won't send

Re: PMs won't send

HI Bruno

I replied to your PM which I received OK.

I get PMs but randomly they don't send. I received one recently and replied to it OK and recived a response, but my last reply is stuck!

(Incidentally another of my replies has been stuck for about a year now!)

Cheers

Re: technical data

The official documentation states 1,322 sq ft for both the MkI and the MKIII main planes, it would have been a massive undertaking to have changed it given the war footing. You must choose who is likely to be correct.

I believe that they have digitised most of them. Cost a few pounds for each download. You still see his name on the records. If you are lucky he...
