Hi
Back in the late 60's I was involved with an aircraft perservation group in Bristol, we got hold of the remains of a Magister which we hoped to build up to a static museum exhibit.
We got the Magister from a little private strip in New Milton, Hants. where I also saw this;

At this time I can't find the rest of the shots from that day.

Later on a couple of us went up to Bedfordshire for the day to look at a Magister to get some pictures of things we didn't have drawings for.
That day's pics are in this album, don't forget to "View as Slide Show" to avoid the popups.

Brilliant set of photos, I especially like the Bristol Brabazon item hanging on the hangar wall (off the real thing I suppose?). Nice A40 pickup lurking in one shot too Smile

Hi
I wonder if rogerH can ID this wrapped up fuselage.

My thoughts are along the lines of DH84 Dragon.

Got the right shape and poise of a DH 84
