Hi all,
Been a while since I was active on this forum, dumped my previous (anonymus) HP57 identity. Good to see this forum is still active.
While I was away the Halifax cockpit was finished and fitted out, after that a smaller HP52 Hampden cockpit was built, some instruments still need to be found for that one.
Time flies when you're having fun.
Cheers
Cees

Hi Cees, Welcommmmmmme back, keeping busy I see. Did you pick up any Hampden drawings from the same location where the Halifax drawings are now stored? Gearing up on my end for Sweden recovery work, plus another group has approached us with another location underwater of a second Halifax. Yes, we know the serials number of the new one but not ready to give out that info yet. Right now I am investigating - de-assembling the Hastings (Dunlop) wheels and tires from Malta as these wheels will used as replacement units for both the Halifax and Lancaster at our Bomber Command Museum of Canada. Why? because there are no new replacement tires of the same size as a stock Halifax - Lanc from wartime. Also, the Hastings wheels and brakes (Dunlop) and tires, are exactly the same as a Shackleton wheels and brakesand tires which is what BBMF Lanc, JANE, and CWH Lanc all have now fitted on their main gear legs. Monkey see - monkey do, cheers, Karl
