Actually it frightened the life out me - I didn't hear or see it coming and it was very low!

"Should have gone to Specsavers" they do ear tests. How could you not hear a Merlin coming. But never mind it's a good shot of a icon

I'll have you know I once spent 13 hours sitting behind four Merlins including a fuel and tighten up the loose bits stop on Malta There is a little bit of a story behind that picture which I didn't know when I originally posted it some three years ago. But I don't intend to bore you with that!

Sounds like you were on the ground in Malta behind the engines of a Lincoln - Salutations for your service! - and probably why you might be a little "deaf" as being anywhere in or near a running Linc for any longish period of time was reputed to be a "sure route" to hearing loss , and thus why you didn't hear that Spit coming

Oh no - the Lincoln hadn't been invented then. A clue....This aircraft was mainly fabricated from Lancaster parts.

Thus a Lancastrian !

PS: the Lincoln, as you well know, was originally going to be the next version of the Lancaster until it was decided that the extensive changes to the design warranted a new name!

Nearly right! The Lancastrian was a civilian version of the Lancaster. The crate I was flying in on that occasion was a wartime Avro York. Well transport was a bit short at that time because somebody had set fire to the 'Empire Windrush'. That name ring a bell?

OOPS. had forgotten about the York!

Bit like a Lanc but with a "T/C added" - i.e, "same" size but with a "bigger belly"!

PS to the many who have never heard of the AVRO York, it was freighter version of the Lancaster - see here and elsewhere.
