Some other little planes

ewn's post of plane pictures has proved popular so here are some more!

Around 30 Morgans, including members of SogMog and LogMog, attended a "Fly-In" at West Tisted private airfield last Saturday. The event raised £1960 for the Starlight Foundation.

Thanks for sharing that lovely selection.

I have flown in the yellow Tiger with my Dad it's G-ANFM it was painted dark red in those days and was owned by a lovely old farmer gentlemen called George Jarvis who opened up his own grass strip and hangerage and called it Felthorpe Flying Club, he bought the Tiger and then asked my Dad to teach him to fly. He had visited Little Snoring airfield where my Dad was CFI and asked for an hour of aerobatics, as you would expect father took this steadily to begin with George being 65 at the time he absolutely loved it bless him. He had an Armstrong Siddley and my God could he drive it quickly these guys were such large characters and wonderful people to know.

That twin Dragon Rapide I have flown in the old AA one it came to a Little Snoring Rally and was taking people up for trips, it's daytime job was reporting on the traffic conditions, how times have changed.


There's something very wrong with that Spit, it must be a miniature replica or some such. The prop and spinner are way out of proportion.


Is that a Mew Gull with the racing No4 on the tail plane do you happen to know, they are very pretty and had success in the Kings Cup Air Races back in the day.

Well spotted. It was there last year and when I first saw it from a distance I thought it was the real thing. It's only when I got closer I realised it wasn't quite the right size, it's actually a 9:10 scale replica, I believe from an Australian kit.

Still a massive achievement and pride of ownership I'm sure, that is an interesting little airstrip there.

But what would be the point of a 9/10ths replica? Surely more expensive to create new jigs, approvals etc, when there’s healthy industry based ‘re-creating’ ‘genuine’ full scale aeroplanes?

Splendid pictures, G-BUCH would be perfect for me, I love the chunky look of that aircraft, coincidentally, my corner of the world is called BUCHAN and it’s also my name. What type of plane is it?

I do hope I’m not developing an unhealthy interest in these things, folks will think I’m having a midlife crisis (again laugh2)

I’m sure that’s also an 80th anniversary 4/4 I see too, next to the VW camper, only, it has silver wheels rather than the blue ones I have.

It's a 1943 Stinson V77 (AT-19) Reliant C/N 77-381


Todays equivalent a De Havilland Otter, also available with wheels laugh2

if only the genuine Spitfire could be had for a hundred thousand or so but the reality is it will cost several million. A replica, as in the pic, can be built for little more than say, a hundred thousand pounds. It's a bit like the classic car scene where originality comes at a premium and the engineering is difficult.
