    Possibly on its way to Fairford show nr Gloucester. It’s on this weekend. I saw the massive troop transporter going over Burford yesterday, maybe on its way to Brize.

    It did a couple of passes at a show I was attending the other day, I was surprised how small it looked.
     
  6. A great aeroplane.
    In fact, it’s the only thing that can be made from old school Lego, that actually looks like what it’s supposed to be...
     
  7. If i'm not mistaken, it's the only one that flies left. I think there are 2 actual planes left though.

  9. Two flying ones - the Canadians have the other. More under restoration, but I’m not sure they’ll fly again.
