How great would it be to fly one of these beauties.I’ll have a guess and say MkV…I’m sure I’m wrong.Woodie will be along soon to tell you. :o)
Thanks for your confidence in me Michael.I’d say it is a clipped wing LF XVI E (mk16) and probably has the more powerful Griffon engine.I just can’t make it out from the photo. Cheers Neil
From what I can tell it’s one of the BBMF’s machines and they say that it is “presented as a clipped wing LF Mk IX”. See here for more details.
Dave has the exact aircraft ….thanks for the details of the web site . The numbers all match and confirm that this is a member of the Battle of Britain memorial flight . Thanks for all of your help Regards Phil.
TE 356 is a Mk16 in the US. with the same Sqdn code. I must get the new BofBMF book for XmasCheers Dave and PhilRegards Neil
