A handy site I use often.
Or just post "Aircraft registration" with the registration, or whatever numbers, after.

There was an early Anson fuselage languishing in a hangar near to the one I housed the truck in for some time, at Hooton Park, I've an inkling it might be the same one. I couldn't get any photos as the building was too unsafe to enter..

The Piper Colt with a similar registration,(i had to look twice) G-ARKN, was based at Derby until very recently, currently lives on Isle of Wight.

And some miscellaneous shots from
Filton and off the web.
How would you fancy being on board this?


I don't know what a Canberra was doing at Filton in the late 60's.


The Brits were being refurbed.



That 747 did land.

I don't think that Jumbo is at Filton, the runway looks too narrow. Did you know that Filton is closing (as an airfield) for good this year?

Julian.

Hi Julian
No, I believe the 747 was in S Africa, as I said i got that off the web.

I wonder what Rolls (or what ever they call the engine works now) and BAC will do about their communications aircraft when Filton closes, Lulsgate or Staverton?
Staverton is probably nearer in time though not distance.

Staverton is probably nearer in time though not distance.


The main disruption will be for the Airbus guys and the three or four flights a day to Hawarden and Toulouse, currently operated by BMI Regional. Contracts are up for renewal soon I think, but the best rumour is that flights will go from Lulsgate instead - Staverton is probably too tight on runway length, operating hours and equipment for jet operations.

It is a great shame that Filton (as an aerodrome) is to close, of course Filton should have been Bristol's main airport - not that thing (ie Lulsgate) on the top of a hill originally built by the RAF as a bad weather training aerodrome!

Julian.,

Hi
Didn't realise they had contracted out.
When I was there BAC had a 125 and a Heron, and Rolls had 3 Doves, 2 125's, an Argosy and they aquired a Jetstream shortly after I left.

Lovely pics Penman.

I think KIO is a Miles type possibly a Messenger.


Sorry I see Roger beat me to it!

Hi Rick
That centre section is a bit of a puzzle.
Looks to be a low wing aircraft similar in size to the Anson, but the nascelles don't look long enough to me.
Oxford could be a possibility.
Looking at how much wing extends beyond the nascelles and the structure of the exposed rib it probably needs someone with more knowledge of different manufacturers wing construction methods.

Having a look at the wiki page for Llanbedr I see they had the following there
Quote:
Target tug
Miles Martinet TT.I
Westland Lysander TT.III
Bristol Beaufighter TT.10
de Havilland Mosquito TT.35
Gloster Meteor TT.20
English Electric Canberra B.2(TT), TT.18

[edit] Target drones
Fairey Firefly U.8, U.9
Gloster Meteor U.14, U.15, U.16
GAF Jindivik various marks
de Havilland Sea Vixen D.3

[edit] Communication & Ferry role
Avro Anson T.21
de Havilland Devon C.2 until 1994
Piper Navajo Chieftain from 1994

So maybe it was another Anson scrapped on site or possibly a Beau, don't see it as a Mossie because their engines were underslung and inline not radial.
