Ready salted, well basically it's a bit plane and that's exactly what it is. Now i'm no expert on aviation but after discussing my find with a former RAF man it appears that it's air worthiness certificate may not be valid. However, as a chance find it did keep me interested for an hour. My plane expertise limits me to what type it is, I did get told the type but by that point my eyes had glazed over such is my interest in talking to plane people. Anyway despite my lack of any tangible information i've managed to spin out the write up with pointless waffle. :4_joy:

I would concur that it certainly looks like a plane and to me its flying capabilities may be slightly compromised. Very photogenic though!

That is one odd looking plane. It seems to be missing a few important components ?

I reckon the defects will polish out ?

Looks about right to me, thanks for helping me out on filling in the vital info. ☺️, that's a plane even I know. Winged serpents of Beelzebub,  I'm like Mr T when it comes to flying.
