MARU 5137

Recommended Posts

Yeah sure Maru  ...aircraft catapult ......my ears ....thats a UFO landing pad for when the lizard people came in 1941. ...Harwell went on to be the centre for anti gravity ...the Nuclear Science government lab . 

Even today the saucer is still there , visible on Google earth.

I know Harwell as it's just down the road from us ( that photo actually is the campus) , but the catapult was a new one . Can't imagine trying to catapult a fully laden Lanc, they struggled at the best of times. 

And besides that item, i wouldn't want to sit in such an aircraft being launched while the main gear tracks are moving along a very very narrow path, so with the possibility of running off those tracks without a guiding system (with only the sling pulling on the bomber) would be a disaster in the making.........just my two p's
