Sorry not the seamew, although I do see where you are coming from.

Do we need a clue? (Two votes gets a clue ;) )

That's an English Electric Kingston, an aircraft so successful (?) that English Electric shut up shop and didn't make another for over 20 years!

OK, here's something a bit different. Like most car makers, MG in Abingdon made bits of aircraft during WW2. Here is the distinctive nose section for one, but which one?

I know they were American but it looks like a B-25 Mitchell to me.

Spot on, Smudge - your go

Andy, the Waco was a steel tube affair and considerably more angular - I think it only carried 8 trrops as well (small number onyhow)

Before we consign Horsa to history,
I thought you might like to learn how to distinguish Hengist  from Horsa

Hengist and Horsa

Hengist was coarser than Horsa,
And Horsa was awfully coarse.
Horsa drank whiskey,
Told tales that were risqué,
But Hengist was in a divorce.

Horsa grew coarser and coarser,
But Hengist was coarse all his life.
That reprobate Horsa
Drank tea from a saucer,
But Hengist ate peas with his knife.

useful, eh?

What a mine if information and entertaiment we are {-)  Here is a bit that I got pulled up for ...Waco, the aircraft company, is pronounced "walk oh" not "wake oh" as in the City name. Got that from a pilot that had 5 Waco biplanes ???. Check the vintage advertisments for the company.

  Where did you find that, Andrew?

  Reminds me of:

  I eat my peas with honey,
  I've done it all my life.
  It makes the peas taste funny,
  But it keeps 'em on the knife!
