    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.
