Heinkel HE-111 H-20/R1 by Daniel-Wales-Images
Heinkel HE-111 H-20/R1
Royal Air Force Museum Hendon.

In case you are wondering about the clutter around the displays, the aircraft within the Battle of Britain hall are currently undergoing survey work and maintenance in preparation for the centenary of the Royal Air Force in two years time. This was partly the reason I visited Hendon as some of the rarer aircraft have panels open or are in pieces. It's always nice to see some of the inner workings of these aircraft.

In case you are wondering about the clutter around the displays, the aircraft within the Battle of Britain hall are currently undergoing survey work and maintenance at the moment in preparation for the centenary of the Royal Air Force in two years time.

Messerschmitt ME109 G-2 by Daniel-Wales-Images
Messerschmitt ME109 G-2
This is Messerschmitt ME109 G-2 "Black Six" at the Royal Air Force Museum Hendon 2016. She was once the last original example of the type to remain in airworthy condition and from the early 90s up until 1997 she was a regular performer at UK airshows. Her fate was always to be eventually grounded but a landing accident at Duxford in October of 1997 sealed her fate. After rebuild she was placed in the Museum at Hendon where she has remained ever 
since.

Since her grounding two early examples of the BF-109 have since become airworthy and a good few Spanish built Buchons have been retrofitted with DB engines, so the type lives on in airworthy form today.

Handley Page Halifax Mk.II by Daniel-Wales-Images
Handley Page Halifax Mk.II
Handley Page Halifax W1048 TL-S from 35 Squadron took off from RAF Kinloss in Scotland on the evening of 27th April 1942 to take part in an attack on Tirpitz in Fættenfjord, Norway. Several hours later the crew found themselves fighting to keep the Halifax in the air having been hit by AA fire during the attack. In the early hours of April 28th, the pilot - Pilot Officer Don MacIntyre from Canada, skilfully crash landed the Halifax on the frozen surface of Lake Hoklingen about seven miles inland from Fættenfjord. The crew fortunately survived the landing and all but one made it back home to safety, the remaining crew member was taken prisoner of war. The aircraft however sunk to the bottom of the lake and remained in situ until 1973 when she was eventually recovered and brought back home to the UK, this is what remains of the aircraft today.

Fairey Battle Mk.I by Daniel-Wales-Images
Fairey Battle Mk.I
Royal Air Force Museum Hendon 2016.

This is an aircraft that is particularly significant to me as it was in this type that a certain Richard Shuttleworth met his untimely end. It was after his death that his mother set up the Shuttleworth Trust in his memory which of course gave us the Shuttleworth Collection we know today.
