219. Transparency

05/02/2016

Back in September I visited the RAF Museum in Hendon to look at the Bruce Collection – the incomparable collection of photographs by Jack Bruce, probably the pre-eminent WWI Aviation historian.

They had pulled out for me the pages relating to the Bristol Scout, and I’ve been going through them, and come across all sorts of pleasurable surprises.

In particular, it’s been noted that¬†the wings of original aircraft don’t look as transparent as ours, so I was delighted to find this one which does!

    The second transparent TVAL B.E.2 was caught on a sunny December day (until my photos on a cloudy February)
