Hi, again. Recently I was in conversation with an ex-RAF tech, whose line was electrical systems in the transition period between Prop and Jet and onwards. In discussing the installation of the radio he said that the radio receiver was sited vertically. Although I was unable to quote the type of receiver at the time of the conversation, I feel that the vertical positioning is correct. If I find out any different, I will get back.

Quite a find:

(From BBC News)

WW2 Mosquito aircraft blueprints found at Airbus factory

"More than 20,000 technical drawings of a World War Two aircraft have been found at a factory in Flintshire.

Blueprints of the Mosquito were thought to have been lost but were discovered by Airbus in an office it was closing down in Broughton.
"

By some weird coincidence, the Mosquito located at Elvington Aircraft Museum, York, has transferred to East Kirkby Airfield for re-construction and eventually bringing to the state where it can run its engines and perform taxy runs.

I attach a couple of photos and will add more when I've resized them to suit. Also to follow photos of a Blenheim which landed at East Kirkby on 28.08.17 for the Airshow.

Another restoration project:

(From the Ottawa Citizen)

RCAF to help restore Lancaster bomber in preparation for its 100th anniversary

"Ownership of Lancaster bomber KB882 was transferred Wednesday from the City of Edmundston to the National Air Force Museum of Canada in Trenton, Ont. Now the Royal Canadian Air Force will begin dismantling the plane and prepare it for transportation to the museum.

KB882 symbolizes the more than 50,000 Canadians who served in Bomber Command during the Second World War and the nearly 10,000 who lost their lives, according to the RCAF.

In addition, the aircraft represents the roles that were also conducted by Lancasters during the postwar period; those include contribution to the RCAF’s Arctic patrol activities and aerial photographic work as Canada charted its wilderness.

“Lancaster KB882 tangibly represents the RCAF’s transition from war to peacetime activities,” Lieutenant-General Mike Hood, Commander, Royal Canadian Air Force, said in a statement. “As the RCAF looks towards its 100th anniversary in 2024, Lancaster KB882 will serve as a valuable anchor for our commemorative activities, and a beacon for the preservation of RCAF and Canadian history and heritage.
”"

Worthy indeed Ivor.

Must admit to being gobsmacked to read that 50,000 Canadians served in Bomber Command and that they had a 20% casualty rate.

There was actually an all-Canadian group (No 6 Group) within Bomber Command ... No 6 group was stationed in Yorkshire and consisted of 14 Canadian squadrons by war's end.
