Great pics, Richard - shame I missed that, I live 30 mins away!!

Silly question but are the blue cowlings/nacelles authentic for Cruickshanks's 'boat. I doubt it somehow.........


However, nice to see a scheme that's taking a bit of weathering!

Hi Bryan
No, I don't think so. They have kept the old cowling colour as when she was with Greenpeace.
Here is a snap I took at Duxford in Oct 2000

Looks like it rained a bit as well?! Typical England airshow....!

I must pay more attention to the airshow press as I would have loved to have gone and got that close to her....ho, hum maybe next year! :D
