    Thanks Larry & David.

    I say "Jolly good old boy."

    My dad was in the RAF during WW2, he didn't fly he was in radio communications or something like that, he never talked much about it.

    Typical British design, and the geodotical construction made this bird a strong one. thanks for pics and the links again! If you look at the Vickers Viking, you can clearly see the shape of the Wellington in it.
