Something a little less exotic but an aeroplane that I have spent many hours in Piper Supercub G-OFER.

Interesting lettering {no idea what you call it)
Is that some practical joke?
(Gopher. Not sure what meaning it gets applied to over yonder)

We call the aeroplane Gopher as in ‘go for that and go for this’! It already had the registration when it came to us so not sure who, if anyone, picked that registration.

Nicely imaged.

We use the same name and meaning in the USA, we spell it either the same as the animal or as the registration letters on the plane PhoenixUK imaged (gofer).

Not quite prop blur, but the centre of no2 on XM496, Bristol Britannia.

And a little bit of info as to why the Britannia was the first production 'fly by wire' aircraft. They had the Ultra Throttle system for computer controlled throttles on the Bristol Proteus engines

The driver still had his throttle levers, but if there was a failure, very rare, then he had a little centre sprung switch for each engine and could wind the throttles up/down from there. He he wanted all 4 up or down at the same time using the little switches then the co driver had to operate 3 and 4 as he was probably moving the control column and 1 hand couldn't reach all 4 switches.

The Ultra system was left to us poor hardworking electricians to look after :cry:

My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

I'd find a place near the airport and sit down. The time the sky is so busy, so crowded,

Awesome caps Doug!


I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace, where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, the high untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
