It was my first thought. We could buy some as well instead of that other white elephant.

Nice to know something actual survived. To bad the way they are displayed, you can't look through them. I can understand they don't want skin oils on them. Just be nice to see what's all there.

Hmm nice idea but I have an idea that its radar cross section might be massive ....that said some aircraft have s surprising small cross section ....sea king as an example and helicopters are normally massive on account of the rotational frequency of the spinny thing on top😆

I think the closest in size was the F-106?  RCS, not sure but, I think the 105 and 106 would have had large RCS. Just my opinion.

 

The 105 plans and the Mossie plans that were found should all be digitized.  How often do we get second chances with these types of historical documents? 

 

I can borrow a scanner(j/k)

Top marks to that man for having (a) the foresight and (b) the gust to half inch them and keep quiet for half a century. They will be a source of much research interest.

Don’t suppose he kept any TSR2 docs or an odd airframe too by any chance

Quite ironic that the Prime Minster who cancelled the project at the time was John Diefenbaker and the blueprints are being housed at the University of Saskatchewan's Diefenbaker Canada Centre.
