    Good Morning all,

    This weekend will see the first of the seasons RR Merlin engine run day.

    The Merlin is from Halifax JD150, we have all 4 engines recovered from the aircraft and with a lot of help from Flight Engineering we have one running with its original saxophone exhaust.

    Please see the link for more info.

    Now you are open during the week, I must get over to see the museum (...especially as its only a 14 minute drive from where we are!).

    More on Dora (see Dora.jpg above showing the harrowing display at Wings Museum):-

    This is yet another reminder of the ever-present capacity of man to commit terrible acts of cruelty and destruction on others.
