Have you ever photographed your car (old or not-so-old) with interesting aircraft for company?

Quite often car advertisers also used to pose their new products with aircraft, SAAB springs to mind, and roverdriver posted something similar with a Model-T based car only the other day. If you have any examples to hand, by all means pop them on here.

In 2003/4 I called into Bruntingthorpe mid-week, and was able to pose my then-modern car with a few aircraft of interest.

For starters, the BM and Victor sharing a patch of tarmac.

How about these made possible by the good folks at the City of Norwich Aviation Museum. The TR4A is mine and the GT6 MkIII is my brother's.

They don't normally allow cars in with the aircraft but if you have a classic or visit with a classic car club a bit of posing of cars with aeroplanes can often be arranged (especially if you contact them in advance). Its a great little museum anyway and they quite often have guided tours available of the Vulcan and the Nimrod which are both remarkably intact inside. There is a small extra charge but worth it.

Hi
Put me out of my misery please.

4 engines (turboprop?) high wing T-tail.

I'm sure I know it but can't put a name to it.
