    Thanks Stevie.

    Heads up, we have a guy just joined us with a photo album of Bitteswell pictures. The real good news is that he's aware of AIX and intends sharing.

    Graham doesn't seem to have revisited after his fist couple of posts, but If he returns I'll request permission to copy any more of his pictures over.

    Another one from Graham...

    The Mamba test bed. (Likely Armstrong Siddeley Motors who leased space on the old site)

    Would that be the second chap along in the front row (From the right) kneeling down? If so, it looks like the chap in the white coat, just to his left, at the row's end, has a pipe in his gob!! Though it may not be alight, can't see any smoke.

    The fireman's just below the Jav's intake. The fag's hanging from his mouth. (At least I assume it's a fag!)
