    I usually buy Royal Navy work trousers from a military surplus place and when the knees wear out I cut them down,sew up the hem and there you go,hard wearing shorts with one hip pocket,two side pockets and two velcro fastening thigh pockets,perfect, I also buy "Desert camo" shorts from the same place with the same amount of pockets and only about a fiver a pair.

    Thanks for the info Phil, we will pay the place a visit in spring, last antique place we visited was the one in Newark a couple of weeks ago. Compo, the Lancaster flies over our place quite regular in the summer months and every Wednesday and Saturday the one at East Kirkby does taxi runs,as you say, nice to hear four Merlins roaring Rog

    Interesting post Phil,thats what this site is all about,peoples experiences and memories,keeps the old grey cells working, I can remember being given a special invitation to the museum after closing on quite a few occasions in the early to mid eighties,a friend of ours was good friends of the then owner (forget his name at the moment) we were given access to most of the aircraft,that's when I first got to sit in the Vulcan as well as the Shackleton and Hastings, for info the Hastings was and probably still is fitted out inside to simulate the back seats of the Vulcan for training purposes, the inside of the Canberra was a very tight squeeze,on entering the small hatch on the right side of the pilots seat straight in front and above was the pilots seat,through the door and immediately left was the two back seats up a couple of steps,very cramped and with no windows must have been a very claustrophobic experience, Rog

    And it was snowing, when the pilot landed the plane and taxied to the parking area he and his crew climbed out and just gave the keys to the then owner of the museum and left Rog

    While on an aviation theme but not really related to the original thread,(things you dont see anymore) this is a picture I took a few years ago of the cockpit interior of a 29 squadron Typhoon (Eurofighter) on a visit to RAF Coningsby Rog
