USAAF airbase - January 25th 2012 - Base dump and MD session :)

Article about: Hi all Well, I've been back to 'my' airbase for a bit of a poke about. I spent a couple of hours at the dump then, when I got knackered, moved over to another area for a bit of relaxing meta

    That's one of the carbs fitted to Texas Raiders, so the blue paint is most likely from a recent overhaul.
    The NOS one I examined at Beltring in 2009 which still had USAAF and manufacturer's seals on was bare metal (and ridiculously priced...)

    Ah, a gold reconditioned seal for aero parts. Cheers Paul.

    Thanks guys Awesome bit of IDing

    PB - Thanks for the pictures

    ian_ - The tubes have the remains of yellow paint on them. Given they were found with the carb mesh, this leads me to think they are an engine part rather than blast tubes.

    LS - The engine bits suddenly appeared from within the usual 'seam' of rusty tin cans. Amazing condition really. Now I have got to find somewhere for them in my display !
