I've posted this for no other reason than that I like this picture.

From Air Enthusiast No.97.

Great. So have two more pics. The first one, taken at Felixstowe, is a Hart which was converted to Osprey IV.
The second is an Osprey III which crashed at Aboukir on take off (22.5.36).

Hi guys,

Ahh the Osprey. One of my favourite aircraft. There just somehting about being shot off the end of a catapult into the unknown and praying everything works as it should.

Tried to post a couple of Portuguese Osprey pics but got a message stating the 'board attachment quota has been reached'.

Alex, that P.O.S. never did work proper. On this forum, Photobucket is your friend.

Hi,

Ok, try these.

The first one shows a Portuguse Osprey being hoisted on board the sloop Alfonso de Albuquerque.
The second shows Osprey number 4 taxing through the waters near Macau in the Far East.

Both photos credited to the Portuguese Air Force Museum.
