    [While there I was told that had I called there last week I could have seen a painting of R.J. Mitchell plus some other prints. These have now been moved to another department that needs permission to enter and may be refused. I'll try next week.[/QUOTE]



    This is the painting that I was allowed to photograph on todays visit.

    The first two photographs were taken on the ground-floor of the Engineering block. The next three are within one of the hangars. The screen can be switched on/off as seen showing the jet's moving parts.

    My many thanks to all the people at Cranfield today, who, after my un-expected visit, assisted me with their many phone-calls and arrangements to take all the shown photographs. Special thanks to Amanda and Mr Devonshire.
