I have actually sat in ( WR 963 )
Mr Cubberley was a REAL Gent
It was when 'She'had had the new Griffon fitted and the White paint was being applied
Im also in contact with someone on Deviantart ( female) who has a connection with ( WR)
You're more than welcome to come again. Sqn Ldr Cubberley still attends regularly at Coventry and keeps us younger guys on track regarding our old bomber. I know who you are now though, the lady you've been chatting with on DA is my sister, Laura! I commissioned a painting from her of WR963 in the new scheme, which I think is featured on Laura's page. Have you visited again since the scaffolding got put away and the paintwork is done?
theplasticsurgeon: - we've been having a discussion regarding the Magic Roundabout characters on another fourm, it appears one 8 Sqn CO ordered them got rid of. The names (but not the art) made a reappearance during storage at Waddington in 1991. The name 'Ermintrude' was still visible on WR963 until we repainted her, but several of the others still carry names.
