Two photos of the Short Valetta. In the first pic note how a speed boat has deliberately gone in front of it so as to churn up the water and give the aircraft a better chance of coming unstuck.

Coming in to alight at Rochester.

I would like to see a scale drawing of this and more photos.

Oh oh! The dreaded red " X ". Did you use PhotoReflex ?
