Thanks Rick, something to add to my 'to do' list should I ever get back 'home'.

Hi all,

I found myself at Cosford again today, and what should be being delivered but a VC10, currently in the process of being dismantled at Bruntingthorpe and moved to Cosford for re-assembly and display.







As a nipper I remember the BA VC10 (G-ARVM) that used to be displayed at the RAFM. It'll be good to see this replacement on show, presumably sat on the concrete blocks in the ground where 'VM once resided.

I didn't get chance to call by the Dornier, hopefully next time!

We popped down to Cosford for the afternoon on Sunday.

On display were a number of "good luck" mascots, mostly from WW2, which I thought might be of interest Smile

Just to update things, it was good to see the VC10 all back together again, in its new home.

A few snaps of a Boulton Paul Defiant being re-assembled at Cosford, up from Hendon I believe.





Hiding behind one of the hangars is this dismantled Hunter, coming or going I'm not sure (I don't recall seeing it before).



Interesting old Crossley also seen:

HYi
According to Wiki there is one at Cosford XL568.
I think it appears in your first lot of pics suspended above the Victor's cockpit.

I would say that is a different one, but can't quite make out the numbers.

There's also one close to the entrance some way away from the museum, the reg. of which I forget and I'm not sure I've ever parked up there to grab a photo of it Embarassed This one behind the hangar though I think is a new arrival.

I think the Defiant is a beautiful aircraft, I remember having the airfix model! Wouldn't it be a wonderful job working there.

It always pays to look in the wrong places, today a Harrier was spotted during a loading routine.
