Recent additions at Hendon.

Recommended Posts

I went to Hendon before Christmas, and saw that the replica Aircraft that were made in new Zealand were already there.

 

The RE8 and the albatross had been flying at shuttleworth during last seasons air-shows ( missed them due to work dammit!!!!) As they're now at Hendon it means that i wont get a chance to see them fly as the RE8 & albatross are both airworthy, the albatross is powered by an original Mercedes engine from the RAF museums collection.

 

As you can see, they still had to put the wings on the "Harry Tate" The snipe was in the wings of flight part of the museum separate from the Grahaeme White building. the Snipe also had the strange attachment on both of its wings - not sure what thats for though??

 

the photos were taken with my I-pad mini and they didn't come out too bad.

 

Thought that you might like to see the pics as a matter of interest

 

 

Regards one & all

 

TonyO.
