  2. Tony, it's been sitting in my flickr site for five years ..................
  3. Here is a colour image converted to B/W of two Baltimore's. Although it does not solve the problem of this thread it illustrates the difficulty of interpreting colour from black and white photos. Cheers, Etienne.
  4. Tony, I have never seen a photo of one in mid stone and dark earth but quite a few profiles Until a convincing image is shown here I'm with you............... Etienne.

  8. I have enlarged the critical part of the image, and I am none the wiser, .........but I do not see the ' hydraulic cylinder ' on the other leg.

  10. Thanks for the great input chaps.........especially fernandocouto for the very nice photo as well as Black Night. Your info makes perfect sense. Now my soul can rest............ Cheers.
  11. The angled lines on the fuselage of the H S 126 has always been puzzling me........ I know it had something to do with the dive angle, but how did it benefit the pilot because he could not see them from his position. Any experts please.............
  12. To me that drop tank looks like PRU blue with the base natural metal showing through on the nose.......................
  13. Here is my effort from four years ago. Etienne.
