So I wasn’t surprised to meet a convoy yesterday on a journey along the A51 to Stone. As it approached Rhiannon realised that it wasn’t a generator but something altogether different.
Without any hesitation Rhiannon was ringing her father and telling him to drive out to the end of our lane with his camera.
This is what he saw…
It turned out to be an old Hercules transport aircraft on its way to the ‘knackers yard’. Tim did some research and found some interesting information and photographs of Hercules 301 in service on the Touchdown Aviation website.
