Allan: You have done an outstanding job with those excellent interior photos of the Solent. It's a real pleasure to see such professional work. And to think you enjoyed doing it as well!

Well I made it,enjoyed a tour inside the Solent on Sunday.
You can imagine what a pleasure it was to arrive at the museum,tucked away in a service area near Oakland airport,and see this beautiful aeroplane just standing out in the open.
I can't improve on Allan's photos,so I'll just say,if you get the chance,go to see her.
