Post subject: Re: "And now, a word from the Beeb..."

Was just reading that.
Thought it was interesting that the restoration crew found it enjoyable to fly.
I've been in one of those things; Just a walk round on the ground.
It ain't comfy even for the meagre five minutes I was in it just being nosey.
Trying to get into the cockpit between the pilot seats requires lipo-suction!
The pilots spent most of their time and strength trying to keep the nose up and level in flight.
Enjoyable?!?

[edit: There's one at Usworth Museum which has a crow nesting in one of the engine bays. The staff have given chasing them out now. And there's moss on the pilot's seat from the rain that drips in through the crack in the windshield. Cryin' shame.]
