Recommended Posts

By my count I reckon there's 51 aircraft now down to attend. That's a pretty good turnout!

We have this discussion a lot at work - when IS 'Midnight Friday'? I maintain (because I am correct) that midnight Friday is tonight (ie Thusday night/Friday morning) at midnight but lots of people seem think that it's on Friday night/Saturday morning. I wonder which this is...

Also, there's a certain early war Italian fighter being unwrapped and assembled, now looking largely complete!

MM6976  Fiat CR42

I wonder if it'll fly in time for Legends?!

Now that would be something to see...

I found some information about CR.42 on an airplane forum I am a member of.

"Had it not been for parts picked from worn out J 11's this would not have been possible. This Fiat CR42 carries the English registration G-CBLS and the production number is 920. That airplane was delivered to the Swedish Air Force in May 1941, then became J 11 with FV No. 2542. Used by F 9 and arrived already April 13 the following year lost at an accident at Tårdnatjako in Lapland."

That's how I understood it Swep. So really this should be called a J11 and in Swedish markings perhaps... wouldn't get as many bookings as that though unfortunately. Like the Buchon, none in Spanish markings yet...

Rather. Frankly, I would rather have the Italian color scheme (of any kind) than a grayish green camouflage of J11.
