I know it sounds soppy but seeing those amazing aircraft in that state leaves me feeling almost (but not quite) the same as I do if I see a picture of an old abandoned dog ,surely they could just give them away, there are plenty of people with a bit of spare dosh and a unit somewhere that would love to have them ,I know I would!
Anyhow great set of pics as usual and not a camp Nazi in sight, hope it’s not too hot for you darn sarf Rob ,it’s nice and breezy oop norf where I am !

Yes showery all day today so more the usual English summer.
I agree re wrecks. It always looks/feels odd, even uncomfortable, to see machines that were so long in development, so long in engineering and under maintenance and on strategic flight duty, reduced to ignominy, like an old washing machine dumped on the rubbish, like you’ve witnessed a beloved friend being mistreated and stood by and did nothing about it.
Yep ,you hit the nail squarely on the head, an old friend abandoned, some aircrew would have been through thick and thin in those birds , mind you, my old (literaly) friend of 92 who did 19 missions in Lancasters when I asked him if he developed an affinity with his aircraft said “not really” I think he was glad too see the back of it….

I agree with the above, makes me sad to see the Phantoms, Lightnings and Tornado in such a state. But I did chuckle at the guy sticking his head out of the wing.

Anyone know where I can get a real side nose landing gear door off an F-4? just for a keep sake.

Maybe check Army/Navy surplus centres. These aircraft are often in “graveyards” that are sold in whole or part to private buyers. Somebody out there must have proper details.
