After a morning talking to the Curator at Manchester Museum, I thought this was just the job for Rick,

You said you wanted a small aircraft for the garden:-



Cheers

That'd fit Smile

The MASM has Avro Avian G-EBZM on display, dad was one of the small group who rescued it in semi-derelict condition from the cellar of Lymm grammar school in the 1960s. I don't think the E83W was ever the same again Smile

Always wondered whether any of the Twinny Mustangy Thingies had survived. And also if there ever was more than one.
One other question: Did the pilots work shifts? Very Happy

I remember seeing a picture of two Me 109s similarly siamesed. I wonder if that survived?

Jim.

The North American F-82 Twin Mustang was the last American piston engine fighter ordered into production by the United States Air Force. Based on the P-51 Mustang, the F-82 was originally designed as a long-range escort fighter in World War II, to escort B29's on the long drag to Japan.
Was too late for WW11

Its postwar role changed to that of night-fighting in Korea
Radar-equipped F-82s were used quite extensively by the Air Defense Command as replacements for the P-61 Black Widow night fighter, Second seat taken by a radar op.
During the Korean War, Japan-based F-82s were among the first USAF aircraft to operate over Korea. The first three North Korean aircraft destroyed by U.S. forces were shot down by F-82s.


The ME 109Z was a single seater, but passed over due to the 262 development

Look forward to seeing them. When I was at Staffs Poly, there was a Javelin on gate guardian at RAF Stafford. Sadly it was chopped up a few years later Evil or Very Mad

Trouble with that would be that I'd never get anything done, I'd spend all day every day wandering around looking at things!

Last year there was a Javelin at Newark Aviation Museum displayed about 45 degrees nose up. It may still be so, but they do change their displays from time to time.
It looked like something out of Dan Dare - "Spaceship Away"!
Most impressive.
Jim.

Last time I saw a Javelin was at Biggin Hill about 1964. It was in flying condition and did a fantastic beat up of the runway and over the crowd. Also a Shackalton and a Sea Vixen as I remember. I was about 14 at the time and had taken the coach to the -day out- with a mate.

Isn´t the first plane Japanese. A last ditched effort at the end of the war??
