They've come out a treat, I think the shadows on the Typhoon make them look more menacing,

Any way, what are they doing flying around the skies in the UK shouldn't they be in Afghanistan?

On Flickr, click on the image you want to post, select the large size, copy the url link (box 2) and then insert in an image tag.

[img=Your URL]

The picture should resize to fit in the forum's frame.

Finally got a reply on the HAMS

"in reply to your questions the ham is supplied by Roger Papworth a local butcher with shops in Conningsby and Woodhall Spa, we are are not a Green King pub, we own it and are a free house so we can pick and choose breweries making them more competetive and giving us a wider choice of ales, we always sell Bomber County and Dambuster as they have an affiliation with the history of the pub, in fact Dambuster is brewed exclusively for the Blue Bell by Tom Woods who are based in Grimsby."

Alan.

So now we know chaps.

Rose here again, this sites getting interesting once more not had so much fun since 1Fb left and by the way where’s the bloke who came from Bestwood…flat cap driver I believe his user name was, I liked him.

By the way rob the link is caput.. wouldn’t surprise me if it led to a porn site for frustrated airfix glue sniffers and dirty mac model railway anoraks.

First of all I would like to apologise to Rob 237 and Beefsteak for being greedy and eating this lovely plateful of Lincolnshire Ham and Eggs without their assistance in the Blue Bell today, washed down with a lovely 1/2 of Lancaster bomber,

Kev, I spoke to Alan the manager and mentioned your name, he made us most welcome and we had a good chat about Nottingham and it's people, very friendly host, The barman deserves a special mention for being friendly and welcoming as soon as we entered the place.

Also thought I may have spotted firbeck in the car park, see other post.

Looking forward to the next Nottstalgia invasion of bomber county next spring.

Pilgrims travel in the preserved NCT double-decker of 1948...08.45 departure from Slab Square.

Lower deck £10, Upper deck £12.50: Inclusive of H.. 'n E... lunch.

Upper deck seat recommended at Coningsby viewing compound...

Strolling minstrel F..... strumming along on the banjo as the Good Sheppard erects his tripod on (specially reinforced) bus roof - despite being warned of low bridges.

The six regular contributors get first choice, followed by the other 1,035 'members' who don't bother...

Cheers

Get that Charabanc a rolling.

We can set up an extra dining room in the car park (As long as the skid marks are gone ....) I think it would be polite to put in an extra order at the butchers for the Ham though !!!!
