Aviation Heritage in safe hands....
« on: February 15, 2016, 09:05:19 PM »
I was bouncing around looking for something interesting...

I typed in "Supermarine heritage" and this was the first image.

http://www.baesystems.com/en-uk/multimedia/riat-2015-heritage-supermarine-spitfire

I know some people will not be able to follow the link so for clarity the caption reads:-
"RIAT 2015 Heritage: Supermarine Spitfire
The images on this site are the property of BAE Systems (Copyright © 2016 BAE Systems.

I've added the bold.

If you can't see the image it's a very nice picture of another 1930's monoplane fighter (but without elliptical wings or a bubble canopy)

Our heritage in safe hands?
I'll never give up on the dream!

It reminds me of the time when the BNP were handing out leaflets which had a beautiful picture of a Spitfire on it.

The image was so beautiful you could see the Polish Airforce markings on the nose.

D'OH!!!

I'd expect that from the BNP, but not BAE Systems!

Well at least the BNP could identify the aircraft type (unlike BAe asset strippers.)

Done that, but negotiating the website as well as this page, is somewhat of an embarrassment.
