Recommended Posts

I have no idea even what that is, although if it sends Dai to sleep it must be A Good Thing ™ :whis:

I'm going to guess it's a bomb aimer's sight of some description?

Looks like settings for a torpedo...

that was my thinking too, either that or something carrier based...so, K, i'm going to guess firstly at a Bristol Beaufort, if its not then i've another guess waiting in the wings.

Wrong Simon - it's sort of a cross between a bomb sight and a torpedo.

But it is twin engined, and of WW2 British vintage. And it was intended that the aircraft would land on a carrier after the mission, but take off from dry land. When working up for carrier landings, the squadron broke two or three Barracudas

Maybe I'm being very specific on a mark of a certain kind

One last thing - Beccles

Sort of looks like a B-24 Liberator

looking at the picture below, i'd say less of the 'sort of' and more "thats spot on!"- how do you do it K?!
