    Hi Chris, I will do some checking and see if I can find out anything. Unfortunately, by the looks of the photos, this location is out in the country, so I doubt its an operating junk yark. It's probably in some old farmers field.

    Chris, to me these dont look like the supports for the Waco, i thought that the airframe was mainly aluminium, these look as if they are rusting, i might be wrong ?

    Hi Dave, no these are OK: the airframes are steel on these. I have been up close to several in the South of France.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Their is a photo of one being restored (well I think the restoration has come to a grinding halt actually) sitting in a hanger on my son's web site. If interested, go to My Airspace - Home Page and hit the Historic Flabob Airport link on the left menu, scrowl down just a bit and you'll see it. The kid help to work on it one day, but as I said, I think the restoration has come to a halt.
