Lumpy bits of iron!
« on: June 28, 2014, 08:46:28 PM »
Can anyone identify these and what they are for?
There's four of them with screwy bits on the front making them look like, well never mind that now but I'm sure someone told me a couple of years back but it's gone again.
If someone can enlighten me I will make a wee notice to put on the inside of the flap underneath the starboard jump seat, which is where they are.

They are jacking adaptors (you don't have enough of your Vulcan left to use them  ;))
I'll never give up on the dream!

Thanks very much Sam, as always, for your help.
I'll not forget this, when you look at them it should be fairly obvious when you've seen the jacking points.

Funnily enough I have had one, and only one thank goodness, woman asked if we thought we'd ever restore XM569 to flying condition.
I think that what it cost to get 558 into the air would pale into insignificance by comparison to achieve this HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You should have asked her for a cheque there and then!
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!

But hell if you did it the airframe would have plenty of flying hours left.
