Spotted today....

Recommended Posts

Possibly the PBY Catalina (G-PBYA)?

Quite a distinctive sound and shape, and very slow, which could fit your description.

It's based at Duxford but is a regular on the show circuit and will often fly if the weather is too bad for most others!

Spotted today on the M6 heading north between junctions 11A & 12 at approx 12:15, a V2 ROCKET on the back of an artic, it was painted green and looked to be partially sectioned. The big question is, was it real or a replica? And where was it going?

It's the tow vehicle that worries me, is its chassis (if it has one and is not a monocoque) strong enough to tow that trailer even if empty?

Visited the RAF Museum at Hendon last week. On the way out along the A41 (which runs virtually behind the museum) noticed about three/four Land Rover's and a couple of Dodge's (think one was a Carryall) on the drive of a house.

That must be a real rarity over there - they're pretty thin on the ground here ! That's one of the diesel Dutch airportables isn't it ?
