Had a meeting today at this hotel, the hotel car park was interesting :






The hotel was the old Liverpool airport terminal building... not sure who owns the planes?

Hi
Avro 748 Srs 1, c/n 1543 ex-Emerald Airways G-BEJD, at Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group, Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Prince 3E, G-AMLZ (cn P50/46), at Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group, Merseyside, England

The prototype Jetstream 41 G-JMAC is preserved by the Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group (SAHG)

Meteor F.8 WH291, Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group,

Does anyone recognise the low wing 4 engined job to the left of the Fire Tender?

Hi
I've found that the 4 engine job is a Britannia.
Britannia 308F (G-ANCF)
Removed from Kemble, and reassembled in early 2007 in Liverpool, England. Under restoration

Looks like a Bristol Britannia (thought you'd have spotted that one Penman Wink)

(goes for a quick look)

Probably would if I had considered turboprop, but I didn't, I thought those nacelles looked like radial engine ones.

Rick: re-shrink that picture, it has grown in width since last night.
