Spitfire duo
Bob Stanford Tuck's Spitfire, 92 Squadron, May-June 1940, with an aircraft of 74 Squadron in the background. No.92 changed its ID letters to QJ sometime later in 1940 when it was realised 301 Squadron was also using GR; which didn't solve the problem because it was then realised that QJ was also being used by 616 Squadron, who had to change to YQ! The black ('Night')/white undersurfaces were ordered changed to Sky (aka duck egg blue, aka duck egg green) about June 1940, at first with no underwing roundels.

A Little Tribute to 33lima's new CH mod!


Thanks for taking the Historical realism a bit deeper Sir. Nice work!!!
S!Blade<><

On September 12th, the morning after R Stanford Tuck was given command of No. 257 Squadron, he took his Hawker Hurricane, DT-A, for a familiarization flight.
[Linked Image]

How he ended up at The Isle of Wight is anyone's guess. He took the liberty of using the Chain Home RDF towers as an acceptable turning point to begin his return flight to Martlesham.
[Linked Image]

Imagine the tower workers surprise upon witnessing an RAF pilot this low and close to the towers. The boys on the middle deck clapped and cheered as they watched this crazy bloke speed passed.
[Linked Image]

The boys on the top of the tower did likewise, enjoying the show.
[Linked Image]

On his return pass Tuck flew his lass down as low as he dared to give them a good show once again.
[Linked Image]

All of the boys on the tower got a chuckle as they watched Tuck fly off to the northeast and out of sight.
[Linked Image]
Upon his return to Martlesham he recollected about the Hawker Hurricane, "After the Spit, it [the Hurricane] was like a flying brick–a great, lumbering farmyard stallion compared with a dainty and gentle thoroughbred….It nearly broke my heart, because things seemed tough enough without having to take on 109s in a heavy great kite like this." He paused and then proceeded to comment on the positive virtues of the Hawker Hurricane, "It was a remarkably good gun platform; very steady when you opened fire….It was very easy to fly; had no vices, and would take a great deal of punishment and bring you back home….So it was a very fine aircraft for fighter vs. bomber work." Robert Stanford Tuck went on to lead No. 257 Squadron to great success in the late days of The Battle of Britain and into the opening days of the Blitz.

Wow! Nicely posed shots there, though you'd need to have a good head for heights for some of them!

It might be a shock to jump in the Hurricane or the Spitty after flying those old doped fabric kites Ade.

Cheers!

The duty erk rushed into the hangar and spat out, "Mates...bally ten-penny ones dropping in the custard......Charlie Choppers chucking a handful on me towers!...,but the boys were famished after the last mission 33lima. All that flyin about and dog fightin and such. You couldn't expect them to rush right back up without a spot of tea and crumpets my good man? The Squadron leader responded, " I do say there's still two towers left mate, that'll keep Jerry busy for a while old bean. More tea chaps? biggrin

And there was Jerry thinking ''Our job is done, we are going home... Hans, is there any coffee left?''
Moving up behind however is a nasty surprise...
