    Hi Jim, Congratulations on a well structured collection, particularly the Nimrod bits. I went L-Tech A in September 1971 and ended up at Kinloss as the Crew Chief on XV246 during 1972/73. Did the MARDET in Singapore during 1972, great fun. I remember well some brilliant crew chief colleagues who helped me through, like John Poulter, Ed Dearsley, Tam Archibald, John Paxton, etc, etc. Love the Crew Chief Re-union picture, I only wish I had heard about it in time.
    Thanks again, Dave.

    • Many thanks for your kind comments Dave, its always nice when someone takes the time to comment on your work. Kinloss is now a sad reflection of former days although I keep my hand in by volunteering for a local Aviation related Charity Morayvia. We have XV241 as a complete aircraft and the front 50ft of XV240 as a travelling exhibit.
