  1. Clear prop...! 🙂

  2. Great - Thanks, Rob!

  3. Where did you find #3?

  4. Yeah, my Osprey editor reminded me that while it might be over 100F here in the City of Lost Angles, we have air conditioning (for which my September bill always resembles the national debt!), while there's no AC in Blighty! (Remember, "global warming is a Chinese hoax")

  5. Number 3...How proper, a little wooden but, proper. There are eight bolts holding that prop. Who would have know?

  6. as a late reply, I found following caption to #3:
    "The no-nonsense 504 was one of the best trainers ever built. After their good services during the Great War the Spanish, like almost almost everybody, found them quite irresistible…their “hand-me-down” prices sure helped.
    Quite famous in Spain this utterly transgressive photo taken during the Primo’s dictatorship. The dancer Encarnita Alcaraz being playful with an Avro’s prop. Madrid (Cuatro Vientos,maybe),1925

    A big Prop… or a tiny Dancer.
