This could be a regular thread of what has been seen on the road, or in the air even.

 

To kick off, going to work today along the A2070 towards Romney Marsh, I passed under a bridge and going over it was a 1950's Czech Praga 6x6 with radio type body, not seen it in the area before.

 

Then this afternoon whist in my workshop, I heard the unmistakeable sound of Merlins, nearly fell out of the lorry I was working in, got out of the door to see three P51 Mustangs in formation passing over low. A fair bet that one of them was from the next village. Then my brother rang me and as he was speaking he suddenly said that a Mustang and a B25 Mitchell were passing overhead following the M20 North. Sounds like the place to be this weekend is Duxford.

Hi, I'm glad to say it has gone to a good home, sorry I outbid you but it took me right back to my childhood!! it's going for a light restoration and then will be used for what it was made for and als

Fort Stewart in Georgia I believe. This is one of the Normandy recovered ones which were on display at Commes until recently.

It was the Flying Legends airshow this weekend, so if you lean out again you'll probably see them heading home :)

 

Yes, earlier on a B25 Mitchell and two wingmen, one a Mustang I'm sure, flew over, going back to Europe. Wonderful sight :thumbsup:

Thanks Nick,

 

Quite a rare truck over here. When I first started work for MoD, there was one on site with a multibarrel rocket launcer on the back, A Stalin organ I suppose. It was being prepared for a static display at a nearby barracks. Have a feeling it might have ended up at Duxford eventually.

if it lookes like a skip u would think he would park it round the back of the local fish and chip shop hopeing someone will chuck some chip fat init for free :-D

I dont like the idea of these m/fuel we followed a R/thunder reo for a few miles ,the fumes were terrible.had sore eyes for days.Arnt you suposed to use a high percentage of diesel in the mix?

I don't fancy the chip fat route, you need to run two separate tanks, switch over to diesel for a bit before stopping the engine. The other problem is filter blockage, I don't fancy changing filters all the time at the roadside. I have a supply of contam fuel and add some diesel to ensure lubrication of the fuel pump etc. as it tends to have a high petrol content.

As soon as I can get time to finish a couple of jobs on the Reo it will be resident on the farm.
